‘Foam Controversy’ FA guard becomes New York’s savior

The short midrange is currently considered a very important area in the NBA.

The 3-meter space from 4 feet (about 1.2 meters) to 14 feet (about 4.3 meters) from the rim is called the short midrange because it is close to the rim even in the midrange area and the distance is short.

In modern basketball, where the defense near the rim and the 3-point line has become extremely strong, the short mid-range is a space that ace-level players actively use to bombard runs.

Luka Doncic, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, and Kevin Durant, as well as Bam Adebayo, who has made impressive progress on offense this season, are also effectively targeting the short midrange with a turnaround jumper and hook shot.

And the FA guard, who moved to New York amidst the ‘bubble controversy’ ahead of this season, is also emerging as a new prince in the short midrange area. It’s Jaylen Brunson.

Brunson signed a contract with New York for four years and $104 million after becoming a free agent last summer, and chose to transfer. It was his first transfer, made four years after his debut.

It is true that at the time of his transfer there was a lot of talk about the salary Brunson was receiving. He made ‘storm growth’ for two seasons and established himself as Dallas’ second option to support Don Chichi, but it was evaluated by the public that he was not a player worthy of a contract worth more than $100 million.

However, now that the regular season is halfway through, the view of Brunson is completely different. New York, which gave Brunson a $100 million contract, is rather being evaluated as ‘caught’.

In 38 games this season, Brunson is averaging 21.6 points, 3.5 rebounds and 6.5 assists. He even holds efficiency with a field goal rate of 46.1% and a 3-point success rate of 38.1%. He also improved his ability to earn free throws compared to last season. He obtained 5.1 free throws per game, and succeeded in 4.3 of them, and he is also demonstrating the free throw-based scoring ability that ace-level players often show. 카지노

Brunson is also a player who has had two ‘games of a life’ in the past week. He set a new career-high record by scoring 38 points against San Antonio on the 5th, and immediately broke the career-high record by bombing 44 points just five days later against Milwaukee on the 10th. Considering that the opponent Milwaukee is a team with many tough and outstanding defenders, such as Zhuru Halladay, Jebbon Carter, and Grayson Allen, the performance was all the more surprising.

The secret to Brunson’s performance lies in the aforementioned short midrange strategy.

This season, Brunson has hit a total of 127 from the short midrange, a 4-14 foot zone from the rim. This is fifth in the league behind Kevin Durant, Luka Doncic, Bam Adebayo and Shai Gilgeous-Alexander.
