Brandon Jennings Is The Anti-LeBron James

Or, “How Not To Score In The NBA.”

LeBron James is in the midst of one of most dominant runs in NBA history — last night in a win over the Blazers he became the first player to score 30+ points on 60% shooting for six consecutive games. His offensive efficiency is on a level nearly indescribable with words and stats, but thankfully Brandon Jennings exists to help put everything into perspective.

Jennings, a fellow volume shooter (but not necessarily a volume scorer), is slumping. His field goal percentage over the last 10 games has dipped to 34%, way down from his career clip of 39% (which is terrible, anyway).

Here is the shot chart of two main scoring options having a very, very different rates of success, via Justin Phan.
