A good shot percentage is different for each position. Point Guard: The average point guard shoots 40%. A point guard that shoots a good percentage will be around 43%. An exc…ellent shooting percentage would be around 45% and better. Obviously, guards like Tony Parker who shoot primarily layups and floaters will have higher shot percentages than those who prefer to shoot long range shots. Shooting Guard: The average shooting guard shoots 41%. A shooting guard that shoots a good percentage will be around 44%. An excellent shooting percentage would be around 46% and better. If a shooting guard is mainly an alley-oop catcher, they will have a higher shot percentage than Kevin Martin, who draws fouls and shoots the ball more often. Small Forward: The average small forward shoots 40%. A small forward that shoots a good percentage will be around 43%. An excellent shooting percentage would be around 45% and better. Small forwards come in many different shapes and sizes, so percentages will vary. Power Forward: The average power forward shoots 42%. A power forward that shoots a good percentage will be around 46%. An excellent percentage would be around 50%. Power forwards are almost always near the basket and collect many rebounds, thus are able to get easy scoring opportunities. Center: The average center shoots around 44%. A center that shoots a good percentage will be around 47%. An excellent percentage would be around 50% and higher. Centers, like power forwards, are near the basket a lot.
No, the thought being that the foul did not allow the player to have a fair attempt at making the shot.
The two point shot has always existed in basketball.
Thay are three points, or three-pointers
Ronnie Carr of Western Carolina made college basketball's first 3-point shot in 1980. Chris Ford of the Boston Celtics made the NBA's first 3-point shot in 1979.
The NBA adopted the 3 point line at the start of the 1979-1980 season, which is of variable distance, ranging from 22 feet (6.7 m) in the corners to 23.75 feet.
you get 2 points
either a dunk or a lay- up is well what you may think, but a "lay-in" would be the HIGHEST percentage shot. PROOF: Imagine you would win a million dollars to make a sh…ot on a nerf rim, with a nerf ball and the rim is eye-level... how would you proceed?
NO, it is the lowest percentage shot because it is harder to make go in the basket. the paint is the high percentage shot u would want to take
According to a source at the South Dakota High School Activities Association, the 3 point shot was added to high school basketball for the 1985-1986 season.
Answer Outside of the "key", but in the same half of the court, there is another line, roughly in the shape of a half circle. Shots made from outside of th…is line are awarded 3 points. They are sometimes referred to as "field goals".
There is no set probability for every 3-point shot. Every player has their own 3-point percentage, which is simply the number of 3-point shots made divided by the numb…er of 3-point shots attempted. The average three point percentage is around 35%, while the generally high percentages are around 45%. Last I looked, the best 3-point percentage in the NBA was somewhere around 48%, which is ridiculously good. They give them 3 points for a reason; it's a very difficult shot to make with any measure of consistency. For the NBA (which has a longer 3 point shot than in college) an average shooting percentage is about 25%, while a good shooter may hit between 36 and 42%. Anything over this is extremely accurate, left to players who are considered shooting specialists who only shoot the ball when they are wide open. Scorers who must shoot often even if they are well defended often shoot a lesser percentage despite being considered accurate. Kobe Bryant currently shoots 36% from 3pt range.
No matter where you shoot from, after the three point arc it just counts as a three pointer.
