In my inaugural DTB’S OFFICIAL NBA POWER RANKINGS which I shilled relentlessly both on the YouTube platform and many other platforms, I went hard at Kent Bazemore for having such a slow start to the season. I even had the audacity to call the Bazed God a “failure”. He must have read my power rankings or something because he bounced back from his poor first week of the season to shoot 7-of-12 and now 8-of-13 in back-to-back games. This is the Bazed God we expect and I’m sorry I ever doubted him.
We’re not out of the woods yet. He’s still not even shooting 40% on the year. In case you haven’t been paying attention for four years, 40% is DTB’s OFFICIAL PERCENTAGE OF PASSABLE SHOOTING IF YOU ARE NOT A BIG MAN. In case you’re wondering, 50% is where the line is drawn if you’re a big. Now, before you come at me with your fancy advanced stats acquired from weird underground websites, telling me that raw shooting percentage does not even come close to demonstrating how a player is valuable to their team, let ME tell YOU something: I don’t care. Shooting percentage is an easy stat to look at and understand. It accurately tells you that Trey Burke sucks and that LeBron James is good. That sounds like a perfectly fine stat to me.
And that stat is telling us that Bazed God needs to have two or three more good games before he’ll even be having an acceptable season shooting-wise. Them’s the facts. That means they’re true and they can’t be refuted.
