No, he doesn't have to shoot more..

More shots means More misses

First he needs to completely stop taking 3-pointers, none zero, I don't care how open he is!

Next, he needs to limit his shots to only "drives to the basket".

He needs to pass first, pass second and pass third! NO SHOOTING!

I would much rather see him get 12 assists and only 8 points than the other way around when he is making LESS THAN 3 out of every 10 shots!

I know he is a rookie, but if your 16 year old kid is a bad driver, you don't hand him the keys to the Mazerati...!

I'm definitely on the shoot-less band wagon. If they really want to impart a winning culture, they would have others shoot the ball more to increase their offensive efficiency.

Not sure if I would not have him shoot from outside, but a couple of three point shots are a lot more reasonable then a 1-7 night.

Like to see him to shot around 6 quality shots a night (In rhythm, clear shots) He still does so much for the team outside of his shooting.

Shoot less - the real problem is they have no one who can shoot the ball at SF or SG - 2 natural positions you would expect to get a lot of your scoring from.

Get these 2 positions upgraded, and the bad shooting problems go away.

Other than his FT%, Clarkson's shooting stats are up this year.

Caldwell-Pope is not good shooter, has never proven to be. his percentages are way too low.

Brandon Ingram should not be starting. I would not give up on him, but he needs to be coming off the bench, its too much for him to be starting yet.

I hope they don't ruin him, and not giving him couple years to grow into his body.

If the Lakers were competing for a title this year and Ingram was holding them back sure.

That is not the case - Ingram's development, along with Ball, Kuzma, etc., is way more important than some theoretical lineup that maximizes the chances of winning now.

I hear Magic state that he doesn't improve his FG % until the end of the season, they will get a coach and change what needs to be done.

The message is clear to Lonzo. We won't kill you based on stats, but either you do something on your own initiative, or the team will have to. I remember Shaq's disdain on the FT coach.
