In his last two seasons of play, Ben McLemore has shown inconsistency in his shooting charts. In his previous year, McLemore was successful in making shots from the paint and on the left-wing perimeter.
But when looking at the data from his 2014-2015 campaign, his sweet spots were in the paint, on the baseline perimeter areas, and the right wing perimeter.
The results say that McLemore’s best spot on the court is in the paint, but that is a little suspect.
McLemore isn’t that great of a slasher. Most of his shots made in the paint are due to scoring on the fast break, which means most of the field goals attempts by McLemore in the interior are due to easy layups and dunks.
Overall, like McLemore’s career so far, it is unknown where the former Jayhawk feels comfortable when taking shots. He hasn’t shown a consistent pattern of success in any area on the hardwood.
