Martell Webster, described by blazersedge.com fans

This is an interesteing summation from blazersedge.com on Webster. Look at where he makes his shots, and where he misses his shots. he's got good 3pt shooting, but spotty. And good 2pt shooting, but spotty. We should be able to improve his shooting percentages via focus and training. 

I'd be really interested in what others think about his shooting map, and any deeper meaning we can derive from it. Also, the top post at blazersedge is about the draft & Pritchard. It has a bit on the Webster/Babbit trade, which is not negative on Webster or the Wolves trade. If you go there, check it out.

 

Here is the link to the post on Webster from May 2010:

As said in my first comment a few hours ago below and by Dave in his post, one big problem going forward with that is Martell gets more consistent with more minutes. He’s not so much instant offense when coming off the bench, especially coming in with a weaker lineup and asked to carry that. And if he developed into a one-dimensional player on offense, that would make it easier to defend him with players just staying home in front of him. He should at least try to develop his mid-range shooting and dribbling, since when he gets close to the rim he’s dangerous again with his athleticism. It’s more or less the area in between where he has trouble getting his scores.

As also said below I like the strides he has made this season on defense and his overall game. And his contract is fair if he continues to produce like that. Just his future role on the team is a bit a point of discussion with that inconsistency Dave pointed out especially when the minutes could go increasingly to Nic. It might become a case of “he’s more valuable to you than he is to us”, pretty much the exact opposite to where e.g. Oden stands.
