2020 NBA Draft

#76

This is a cool looking graphic but doesnt seem to be very intuitive or logical.:

On shots, beyond arc at top of key...it shows "42%" shooting with red dots...red according to color key is way below ncaa avg (42% "below avg" really?)

On shots in corners..shows 17 and 20% with blue dots...blue according to color key is "above avg"....which is unbelievable.

All that said,....this initially cool chart at closer look at colors seems to defy logic.
I think you need to reverse the colors... sort of like a heat map -- red means hot (good), blue means ice (bad).

Got it....he shot very well from top of the arc...never would have guessed 42% from there. Corners are not his spot.

Ayo's shot chart underscores why NBA teams are right to be skeptical about him. The three areas he's above average (top of the key, couple mid-range spots, and the basket) are not likely to be where he'll be taking shots in order to succeed at the next level. I don't see him finishing at the rim as much with his lack of bounce and NBA-level rim protection, and we know teams view mid-range shots as poison. He can hit a straight line 3 but is really bad at corner threes and, perhaps most importantly, floaters.

If the NBA draft goes ahead without changes, (not counting date), I would guess it will be like the NFL draft. With a few exceptions, it was a very 'chalk' draft for at least the first 3-4 rounds. So if Ayo and Kofi are hearing they are being drafted low/not at all, that may sway their decisions. Not sure how the Euro leagues will play out and that may alter Kofi's decision. Not saying he doesn't want he NBA, but his age may play in.
