  • Thea MBAs Bubble was an unprecedented environment with a historic showcase chock full of amazing highlights and incredible performances.

  • Thistles put a oh God, but as they say, it's a make or miss league.

  • So let's take a look at the leading scores, the most efficient shooters and the least efficient shooters in the bubble from every spot on the floor.

  • It makes sense to start in the paint for a few reasons.

  • First of all, paint shots are still the most important shots in the game.

  • And second of all, nobody in the bubble was more prolific in the paint than LeBron James.

  • That's right, The 2020 finals.

  • M v P led his team to the title, in part because, once again he was unstoppable at the rim.

  • James poured in 188 paint field goals in the bubble by far more than any other player, and he converted 68.1% of his shots.

  • They're by far above the league average.

  • In other words, at 35 years old, James is still among the most prolific Rim Attackers on the planet.

  • James drives gets inside running layup It's gotta have a foul.

  • Even though Yanis onto Take You Bow and the Bucks had a disappointing trip to Orlando, there were still some encouraging signs.

  • Among them, the 2020 M v p was the most efficient volume scorer in the paint.

  • Yannis is one of the game's most dominant forces, and he proved it by converting over 70% of his pain shots in the bubble.

  • That's even better than LeBron, and his ability to convert at the rack will make him a force in this league for years to come.

  • There comes the M V P of the basket.

  • Nasty finished.

  • But while Yannis was arguably the best finisher in the bubble, his most important teammate may have been the worst.

  • Chris Middleton failed to convert his close Rangers in Orlando, hitting just 28 of 71 tries.

  • That's just 39% which is not only below league average but also a key reason why Milwaukee struggled to score in their disappointing Siri's against the Heat.

  • Middleton has got to get better near the rim.

  • Let's move to the mid range, which is a dying art form in the modern MBA.

  • And while the mid range baseline jumper is the most endangered shot species.

  • One emerging superstar is still getting his buckets in these old school areas.

  • Nicole Yokich was both the most prolific and the most efficient mid range baseline shooter in the bubble.

  • The Joker used his patented SOM bore shuffle and his hyper elevated release point to sink 25 out of 45 attempts.

  • In these areas, that's almost 56%.

  • That turnaround jumper is a thing of beauty.

  • On the flip side, Even though Anthony Davis was terrific in his first title run, he struggled to make his mid Rangers, especially along the baselines.

  • The brow sank just 36.4% of its 55 attempts in these areas.

  • But something tells me he doesn't really care about that stat.

  • The dude is now a champion.

  • Just like Davis, Kemba Walker found himself deeper in the playoffs than ever before this season.

  • And just like Yokich, Walker was clearly the best shooter in his favorite spot in the bubble.

  • Thanks to his incredible handles and footwork, Walker was the best pull up mid range shooter in the bubble, came back and hit the brakes as well as anyone in the league and rise up a reliable elbow jumpers almost any time he wants.

  • Not only was he the most prolific scorer in these areas around the free throw line, he was the most efficient volume shooter here to sinking over 60% of 63 jumpers here in the bubble and often in high pressure situations.

  • Cardiac.

  • Kemba.

  • That is a tough but Kimble like shot right there.

  • Russell Westbrook shot selection, has always heard his overall efficiency numbers and his tendency to rise up for ill advised jumpers was once again on full display in big moments in the bubble defense laying off of Westbrook.

  • Darren him to shoot the shot.

  • Westbrook will shoot it airborne.

  • Look, there's no question that Westbrook is one of the most talented and tenacious guards in this league.

  • But his tendency to take these bad shots is still frustrating fans deep into his prime.

  • Let's move beyond the arc to the most en vogue shot in the modern MBA, the Corner three pointer where P.

  • J.

  • Tucker has become one of the most successful specialists in the game.

  • Not only is Tucker led the N B A and corner threes made in each of the last three seasons.

  • The former Longhorn with the great shoes did it again in the bubble, sinking 33 corner threes in Orlando.

  • She stands down there in the corner and knocks it in if you help off of him.

  • But while P J was the most prolific, he was not the most efficient in the corners.

  • That honor goes to Jay Crowder, whose sharpshooting provided a huge boost for the Eastern Conference champions.

  • Crowder is no stranger to playoff basketball, and his three and D performance in the bubble was exactly what Miami needed to make a run to the NBA Finals.

  • This is the best I've ever seen Jae Crowder shoot.

  • His three point stroke has been terrific.

  • Meanwhile, Danny Green missed more than his fair share from the spot.

  • He wasn't terrible by any means, but by sinking just 33.8% of the 77 corner threes in Orlando, Green was the least efficient corner three shooter in the bubble.

  • But just like the brow, something tells me this.

  • That won't bother Green, who remains one of the best three and D guys in the game and has now won three titles with three different squads.

  • Duncan Robinson was one of the breakout stars of the 19 2020 season for one simple reason.

  • He's one of the best shooters in the world.

  • Robinson was great all year, but in the bubble he was especially dangerous on the wings.

  • He made 46 of his 108 wing threes in Orlando, which made him the leading scorer from these key shootings in Robinson is special because he combined size with both elite accuracy and release speed.

  • Robinson for three.

  • Bang Duncan Robinson from downtown.

  • There were so many great performances in Orlando, it's hard to remember them all.

  • But who can forget Donovan Mitchell?

  • This guy was on fire, dueling with Jamal Murray in that epic first Brown.

  • Siri's Mitchell was ridiculously hot from the Wings, sinking 56% of his wing threes in the bubble by far the best such mark in this area.

  • Donovan Mitchell.

  • A clutch three pointer for the Jazz Goran Dragic was a huge reason why Miami got all the way to the finals and he abused.

  • Pick and roll defense is with Bam out of bio throughout these playoffs, however, as a three point shooter.

  • He was actually kind of cold drug.

  • It hit just 25.9% of his 54 tries in these areas, which made him the least efficient volume shooter here.

  • Let's finish up here at the top of the York.

  • It shouldn't surprise anyone that James Harden was the leading scorer in this area.

  • The man Charles Barkley calls the dribbler lives up here, isolating defenders and launching Mawr step acts than anyone else in the league by far.

  • As a result, Harden led all scorers in the bubble by sinking 20 59 threes in his happy spot.

  • It's ridiculous.

  • That is ridiculous.

  • But while Harden made slightly more of these shots, Jamal Murray, another break out star, made 27 of 57 tries here, converting a ridiculous 47.4% of his attempts.

  • Murray is rapidly emerging as one of the most complete and terrifying backcourt scores in the entire league.

  • He can do it all, but his ability to take and make threes from here should get Nuggets fans especially excited.

  • Murray does.

  • He got another one, and, um oh, you bet he does.

  • And that might be the dagger.

  • Wow!

  • Wow!

  • Even though Damian Lillard was hit incredible as he lifted Portland into the playoffs, he wasn't his usual self.

  • From the top of the Ark.

  • Get this.

  • Lillard made just 18 of 65 shots up here.

  • That's just 27.7% well below league average is and well beneath his elite standards.

  • Lillard was the primary focus of every opponent's defense of game plan, and as a result, he was forced to take hard shots.

  • And these numbers reflect that basic that well, folks, there you have it.

  • The bubble was an awesome accomplishment, and the Lakers, thanks to their king, are once again champions.
