Artest also needs to start taking the "Right Shot" when its passed to him = Too often he hesitates and then dribbles 2 times to take a leaning horrible shot instead of taking the 1st wide open look.
At the end of season we need to go get 2 solid spot up shooters = there are plenty out there we just need to stop with the LA farm system / grooming and waiting to see if guys develop. ITs clear Farmar, Sasha, Adam, & Luke will never be what Lakers need ost for Kobe off of double and triple teams he recieves.
The thing is, his spot up shooting from three is pretty damn good. Especially when he takes the time to measure it up. It's his fall away and his drives into congestion that are pretty horrendous.
His losing weight has been great. I don't think he should do anything different in that regard. Was he really shooting a whole lot better earlier in the year when he was heavier? No. And has the weight loss helped his defense? Yes. So he should continue doing whatever he is doing to stay on his regimen in that regard.
Mainly, he needs to make better decisions about which shots he takes. One thing that went unnoticed though about last night was Ron was passing pretty damn well and had 5 assists. I can live with that part of his game. He only took 5 shots and dished 5 assists so that isn't so bad. The previous two games were painful.
