The “No Sweat For Shots” Award
You know that guy in your rec league that runs from three-point line to three-point line, rarely cuts to the basket off the ball, and fires shots whenever he catches the ball? Not only is that me, that’s also Andray Blatche, who “led” the team by running an average of just 0.15 miles per field goal attempt. (As a team, the Nets averaged 0.21 miles ran per shot attempt.)
Blatche ranked sixth on the team in distance ran, fourth in field goal attempts, and first in confounding success.
Runner-up: Marcus Thornton wasn’t far behind, averaging .16 miles per field goal attempt. For posterity, Andrei Kirilenko was on the opposite side of this spectrum, running an average of 0.37 miles in between shot attempts.
