Seeing Dante make all these threes led me to wonder: has he converted any midrange shots at all this year? I don’t think I’ve even seem him take one, let alone make one.
Turns out he hasn’t, unless you count 10-footers in the paint, which I don’t. This is a glaring flaw in young Dante’s game; if he doesn’t rectify this I fear he will be out of the league sooner rather than later. The midrange jumper is the most desired and efficient shot in basketball. Anyone who can’t convert these opportunities for guaranteed points should be shipped off to the Moldovan B-league.
I know he’s still young, so maybe we should have some patience. We can send him to Chisinau only after the season has ended.
