He's also a 75% free throw shooter. I just don't thikn he's the shooter that everybody says he is, he says himself he's very streaky. I just don't think a guy who is a slightly above average shooter is going to make it in the NBA when he has no other skills besides shooting. Sure he's tearing up the summer league but so did John Lucas the third and Steve Novak last year. The summer league means very little, and I'd say his career in Europe generally indicates that he'll be a project at best.
Good point. Belinelli can be a great shooter but he can also be just a bit above average at times. He has to show it during the season, simple as that and he will have many opportunities to playing with Baron and Garnett or whoever the star PF Mullin trades for (if he does do the expected big trade). Belinelli will have his chances
