Andray Blatche, Quote Machine: Shot Selection, Schmot Schmelection

Andray Blatche had a very good game last night in a Wizards victory; scoring 22 points on 9-13 shooting from the field. That equates out to nearly 70% shooting from the field, which is really good. You might assume that is because Blatche only took good shots, but he doesn't see it that way. Because according to Bullets Forever, Blatche thinks every shot is a good shot.

"My shot selection is always good. I don't think I did anything wrong tonight....Y'all are asking about my shots and I'm always shooting over 50%. I don't know what the problem with you is man. When you're shooting over 50% at my size its a good shot. Alright. You know what I'm saying? What do you want me to do? You want me to shoot 20 for twenty? I would loooooove to! I can't help it if I don't.

Actually, over 50% for a big man is not great, it's merely pretty good. It's odd that he doesn't feel like the shots he misses are a function of them being too difficult for him to make, but rather some divine intervention preventing him from being perfect from the field. But since he said it in such a funny way, I'm willing to let it slide.
