    Grantland: Ryan Anderson Threat Level

    10. Ryan Anderson Threat Level

    I could do an entire post on the creative ways Monty Williams gets Ryan Anderson open looks in the half-court, but this is more fun. Anderson is now the league's premier long-range bomber, tossing up a ridiculous eight 3s per game and making a just-as-ridiculous 43.5 percent of them. Teams are absolutely terrified of leaving him open; Ray Allen may be the only player who inspires the same level of fear even before the ball has reached his hands.

    The best is in semi-transition, when defenses are scrambling to find the right matchups and Anderson is sprinting to an open spot somewhere behind the 3-point arc. There is a wonderful slice of time when the defense coaches, players, trainers, fans behind the bench, people watching on TV all realize where the ball is about to be passed, and that it is too late to do anything about it. It is the NBA's new silent scream.

    Yeah that pretty much sums it up. I honestly laugh at teams when it happens....i say in my head "every time.....it doesn't matter what you do....he's going to find a way to that 3pt line and hurt your soul...."

    All that AND Anderson's gritty play around the net.

    Ayon for Anderson may go down in the all-time "trade" HoF...

    It was a sign and trade. More of a savvy signing than a trade imo.

    He works hard for his shots off the dribble or just pops in someone's face. I hardly ever see plays run for him to get an open look like a bunch of screens.
