After yet another perfect performance from the charity stripe, Malcolm Brogdon is now 71 of 72 on the season shooting free throws. We’re basically halfway through the season, and he has missed ONE time. I remember it to, because it was so shocking. Against Denver. Slightly left (or maybe right but I think left) and short. He’s had a few front-rimmers, but other than that, all of them have been MONEY. Just in the last three games he’s 15 of 15, which sounds like something James Harden would do in one game and we’d hate him for it.
Brogdon’s also in the 50-40-90 club with his 51.4, 43.2, and 98.6 shooting numbers. So he’s basically a super elite shooter even with his slightly messed up and flat shooting stroke. And he’s averaging 15 points per game as a starter for one of the best teams in the league even though I thought he was pretty much going to peak in his rookie year.
He’s good, is what I’m trying to say. I still can’t figure out how he makes all those driving layups, seriously he makes like five a game, and at this point I don’t think I’ll ever figure it out. So not only is he an Obama-looking Curry, he also finishes around the rim like prime LeBron.
