You say that, but if he would start shooting from everywhere he would get ripped for his terrible shooting even more than Westbrook does.

me and a buddy went to black friday at a best buy with his mom and sister. They wanted some shit. We got in at some hour (idk if it was like midnight or 5am).

We were just kind of having a laugh so we played some NBA live or some shit. And we were playing for like a solid 5 min and were hitting some insane shots. Amazing offense.

then one of us accidentally hit the shoot button when we were standing in our own half and it went in. Then one of us hit a 3 with shaq. and then we confirmed our suspicions when we realized the sliders were at 100
