    Default Is Demar one of the three best midranged shooting guards in the league?

    I didn't hear Matt Devlin's Demar is the best mid-range shooting guard in the league comment, but it struck a chord when I read about it. Around the league, how many midrange shooting guards are there anumore? Kobe gets a lot of his points from there, and I guess you can say Wade but most guys are either 3 point shooters or slashers at that positing these days. Looking around, I don't see any reason why Demar isn't top three as a SG who gets most of there points from mid range shooting.

    Accounting for all SGs

    10-15 ft he ranks 56th in fg%
    16-23ft he ranks 26th in fg%

    Narrowing down the minutes (using 20+ min)

    10-15 ft he ranks 32nd
    16-23ft he ranks 19th

    Attempts from 10-15 ft he's tied for 6th
    Attempts from 16-23ft he's tied for 1st

    Quick conclusion - he's one of the 'best' SG in the league at attempting mid range shots. Not even close to being one of the best at making them though

    Was there also something about total points scored?

    I mean, that is awesome, unless you are taking ridiculous amounts of shots to get them.... oh wait.

    i think this ranking is by default since 1, there been a complete lack of true SG in the draft the past few years..2. most SG can hit a three, & its widely known that long 2s are the worst shot to take in b ball

    A couple things jump out at me from that link you posted that I feel should be included with the stats that you've used.

    Not really arguing one way or the other, the mid-range shot is a terrible shot to rely on .. but if you can make it work for you, then why not; just providing the facts.

    -he's tied for 2nd in makes per game from 16-23 feet, at 2.1 per.
    -he's 8th in makes from 10-15 per game.
    -most of the guys 'ahead' of him, percentage wise, only attempt 0.1 per game; not really valid statistical evidence.
    -League average is 38% from 16-23. Demar hits 41%.
    -League average is 42% from 10-15. Demar hits 36%.

    If you account for the all the data, I'd say that Demar could be counted among the more profficient mid-range scorers in the game.
    BUT with such a small group of guys who actually shoot the mid-range is it really much of an accomplishment to be counted among them?

    Regardless, I'm a huge fan of Demars game.
