Scoreritis

I have decide to make up a term: scoreritis.  Scoreritis is the “disease” where basketball players take ill-adivsed and/or low-percentage shots (a.k.a. “Kobe shots” and mid-range jumpers) because they are under the impression that that’s what a good basketball player does.  Examples of the diseased would be Kobe himself or Allen Iverson.  I’m mentioning this now because I plan to use this in the future, particulary in my re-drafts to describe those who are loved by the conventionals but not the analytics because of low shooting percentages, starting with my next re-draft.

P.S. Strangely, this does not apply to Carmelo Anthony; his problem is that he turns the ball over.  A lot.  A lot a lot.  Like 1.538 times that of the average small forward.
