    Why doesnt Kanter shoot 3s?

    I was watching some of this guys highlights on youtube, he seems to be a good outside shooter for a center. Every now and than when he sets picks if he decided to roll out maybe the defense would need to open up the center if he knocks down those shots. This would leave more motion in the paint- cutting etc, What do you guys think?

    maybe cus he is not allowed by the coaches.
    or there are no set offenses where he gets to shoot the 3

    I doubt the coaches want him to be doing that right now. Maybe he will in a few years, which would be totally sick, btw. Has there ever been a big that was a bully down low and could shoot 3's?

    He can, and maybe eventually he will. The problem is that if he is to rebound the ball, he needs to be in or near the paint, so shooting threes puts him out of position. He isn't Memo, he doesn't play like Memo, and I'm glad.

    Maybe in a pinch when the clock is running dry he'll get one in.

    Bill Laimbeer was a bully and had some range on his shot.
    (though did not try much 3's if I am not mistaken)
    (throughout his career, his 3 percentage is .326)

    How bout he learns to shoot FT's first? The he can tackle mid-range. Then, maybe if he perfects those things, he can move onto the 3 pointer.
    Shovel your way out of the s***

    Maybe because he's better under the basket grabbing rebounds and getting higher % shots for a guy his size??

    Hoosiers .. sheesh..

    Maurice Lucas of the Trailblazers Championship team might qualify but though he did take a lot of jumpers, I looked him up and he rarely took a 3. But that was back in the day before teams took a lot of threes. And believe it or not, he's only listed at 215, but he had to be bigger than that. He was a broad-shouldered and barrel-chested guy who was 6-9 at least.
