    From SLAM-

    LMA checks in at #23
     A great spot up shooter from the mid-range, Aldridge converted assists on 75 percent of his spot up makes from the 16-23 foot range last year while making 2.1 per game. Believe it or not, that 75 percent is actually a four-year low for the power forward from Texas on his jumpers, meaning that he might be comfortable putting the ball on the floor, taking a dribble or two and then shooting the jumper. Either way, Aldridge seems to be a mainstay on this list for years to come with his improving jump shooting ability.

    Roy comes in at a respectable #9
     You might not know that Brandon Roy takes most of his shots in the mid-range area, where he attempts 5 per game and knocks in just over 2 to shoot at a 43 percent clip. A suave combo guard who can pull up and knock down a jumper from anywhere inside the arc, Roy is a tough cover in this region because he is also so tough to prevent from getting to the basket. It is the ability to keep his defender off balance, the awareness of knowing what a good shot is and the confidence to pull the trigger that makes him one of the game’s best in the mid-range.
    CP3 and Derrick Rose are not better mid-range shooters than Roy though. Also, I would have liked to see Jarrett Jack make the list. Dude's mid-range shot was his bread and butter.

    They went by some crazy statistic...either way D.Rose is not a better mid-range jump shooter than B-Roy. They sure didn't double check their computers..cuz damn that's waay off.
    I am a fan of B-Roy and LaMonster!

    The Blazers were winning!  That is the key word, were.  Blazers are living proof that you can live and die by the jumper.  Lately it has been dying.


    Thank God they are 19 games over 500.  Mayb...

    Hawes will be a hot commodity by the trade deadline, I would think the sixers could find a better offer.

    However, I do believe Mo Williams could have somewhat of  a high trade value. Olshey needs to make a deal to get a big man while we...

    Yeah and now Blazers have zero interest in Bynum. I really thought he was worth the small risk. If anything he would be at the end of our bench and we use him as a sub. Hopefully we do make some type of trade for a quality back up center. Right no...
