Just posted this on the main page:
We all know DeMar is developing a post game, which I like, and I thought he looked better going at the rim and absorbing contact these days. So I went to NBA.com to check out his shot distribution charts. What did I find? Disappointment.
DeMar's shot attempts at the rim, as a percentage of his total FGA:
2009-2010: 55.27% (283/512)
2010-2011: 42.63% (492/1154)
2011-2012: 34.66% (313/903)
2012-2013: 32.58% (401/1231)
2013-2014: 23.94% (17/71)
He actually peaked attacking the basket in terms of total shot distribution as a rookie, and peaked in terms of total attempts at the rim in his 2nd year.
Anyone else surprised by that?
