The Hottest Potato

Awarded to the player who shoots the quickest, this one should be no surprise: Mirza Teletovic has the quickest trigger in Brooklyn. Teletovic had possession of the ball for just 0.6 minutes per game in 2013-14 — about 35 seconds — but still averaged 7.3 shots, meaning he took a shot every five seconds he touched the ball.

That includes any time he had the ball, not just before a shot — if he caught the ball and passed, grabbed a rebound or a steal, that counts as time possessing the ball. That also doesn’t include shooting fouls.

Teletovic also averaged one shot every 2.3 times he touched the ball in the frontcourt, the highest ratio on the team.

Runner-up: Andray Blatche, who averaged 9.2 field goal attempts in 1.1 minutes of touch time per game, or a shot every seven seconds.
