Midrange shots remain the least efficient scoring options
in the NBA. They go in less than 40 percent of the time, and they're only worth two points. Plus, the rebounding rates from missed midrange shots are among the lowest of any spots on the floor. Regardless, the league still shoots over one-third of its shots from the midrange
, so players who can score efficiently in the midrange are extremely valuable
. With this in mind, in the four midrange zones above, the NBA’s best midrange shooters so far are Arron Afflalo, Chris Bosh
, Chris Paul, and Ryan Anderson.
