    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?

    NBA players do not have metamorphoses very often (thank you spell check). Kanter has so far shown that he can be a wrecking ball on O and D, rebound, has promise from midrange, and is extremely motivated to win.

    Why would you want to pull this guy away from the paint? If he can hit great but his value will never be maximized by drawing out a defender.

    dude was not allowed for even shooting mid range in the first half of his rook season. I don't expect that 3 pt come into his game before his 5th year or so. although he is easily a 3 pt shooter big man.

    well at least from time to time would be good. ty should allow him that bit.

    I still think that Kanter's biggest problem, by FAR at this point is overthinking the game and moving slowly as a result. Giving him more options is not necessarily a good thing at this point when he finally seems to be figuring out a couple of things he is legitimately very good at.

    Maybe in time, but even then unless he's really a great three point shooter it's just as valuable to step out to the freethrow line or on the baseline.

    He can shoot it, i have doubts about its consistency though.. But why waste a great off. rebounder on the 3pt lane and let him camp there. I think his max. range should be around 17 foot.

    I absoultely agree. his lack of fast practical thinking and acting out of instincts/senses is his biggest problem. he would be a beast if he nailed that.

    Also, he is ripped like he never been before. And your body type, a ripped upper body especially, effects your shooting rhythm and reliability. And usually ripped guys don't shoot at high percentages from long range.
