Calling BS on Doc’s Shelden Comments

 

When the Globe asked Doc Rivers about Shelden Williams’ possible role on the team, the coach reportedly said the following: 

“Very similar to Baby’s role – terrific 15-foot shooter, can pop, he’s strong, can really rebound. That’s his role.”

Sorry, Doc. You lost me at “terrific 15-foot shooter.” Unless he’s improved dramatically, Shelden Williams is, to put it very kindly, NOT a terrific 15-shoot shooter. Statistically, he’s actually the opposite of a terrific 15-foot shooter. As I wrote here, Shelden has never shot higher than 34.6 percent on jump shots during any of stints with Atlanta, Sacramento or Minnesota. You can check the 82games.com links yourselves: See here, here, here, here and here.

Again, maybe Shelden has been working his butt off to become a better jump-shooter. It’s possible. We saw it with Big Baby last season. It’s a lot of work and it involves a lot of in-game bricks, but it’s possible. 

And I like Shelden Williams. He seems like a nice guy. He Tweets about his wife (I think you know who she is), their dogs, their house, his daily issues—basically, the same crap you and I deal with, except Kevin Garnett yells at him during the day. I’m rooting for Shelden to be a contributor this season, and I think he will be. But not as a jump-shooter.

    If you can’t hit 40% of your wide open 15 footers, you’re not a “terrific” shooter… that includes you Big Baby (.369 last season).
