While scouring basketball-reference for material that I can use in this description (because I’m lazy this morning), I found out that Courtney Lee is shooting 48% from three this year. Only three players are better than him:
Kyle Korver (obvs)
Luke Babbitt (I guess I can believe that)
Rasual Butler (what)
So you could say that he’s in “elite” company, but that would be a lie, since Babbitt and Butler are far from being elite at anything other than shooting threes. Meanwhile, my man C-Lee can play defense and drive to the basket, making him a well-rounded player and an invaluable contributor to the finals-bound Grizzlies.
Yeah. I went there.
