Ray Allen will look to adjust to being “too” open from three. When you play with guys at the level of LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, and Chris Bosh, your life as a teammate suddenly gets just a bit easier. Other teams are focusing on the studs, and sometimes drift away from their defensive assignments, creating good, open shots for the other players on the floor. Heck, LeBron James made Mo Williams an All-Star while he was in Cleveland. By now, we know the Miami Heat’s philosophy regarding forming a supporting cast: shooters, shooters, and more shooters. The team now boasts Ray Allen and Rashard Lewis, in addition to Mario Chalmers, Mike Miller, James Jones, and Shane Battier. The dribble penetration of LeBron and Wade create plenty of wide open three-point shots for the rest of the team. Which is a good thing, right? Well, you would think that. The Heat players might disagree. According to Slam Online, some of the Heat shooters are actually complaining about being too wide open from three. Seriously. “Got to get used to it,’ Rashard Lewis said. ‘Because that’s the hardest shot in basketball. I may have to hold it for a couple of seconds, so I can get somebody closing out to me.” “When you’re playing a game, you’re so used to playing instinctively,’ Shane Battier said. ‘When you get a wide-, wide-open three, you’re naked. You have time to think and rationalize, and that’s counterintuitive to how we normally play” “You’re waiting, you’re waiting, you’re waiting, and then you have to kind of reposition your feet. That to me is probably the toughest shot, because there’s not really a rhythm shot.” There are problems, and there are good problems. Being too open is certainly a good problem to have. You can see their point, but I’m sure plenty of players around the league have very little sympathy for these Miami Heat players. We’ll see if they can get used to being too wide open this season.
