LeBron James Shot Distribution

Who’s actually surprised here? We’re talking about LeBron James, debatably the best athlete in the history of man.

Just under half of LeBron’s shots are right at the rim. Over 10 percent come from near or at the block, while over 17 percent come from outside the paint or inside the three-point line; around 20 percent of his shots are from deep.

Based on the above stats, LeBron James is beyond efficient.

James Harden Shot Distribution

Around 38 percent of Harden’s shots are at the rim. Over 10 percent come from near or at the block, while 17 percent come from inside the three-point line; around 20 percent of his shots are from deep.

The latter may be more of a line for a shooting guard, but that doesn’t automatically make Harden a better shooting guard, not by any means. He may shoot like a shooting guard, but let’s compare their field-goal percentages.
