If you're interested in reading an excellent analysis of the 3-pointer in the modern NBA, I highly recommend Ben Morris's article on Stephen Curry, whose historic shooting ability is so absurd, one could argue he is underutilized despite his high field goal attempt numbers.
One can take bad shots - and part of Steph's magic is knowing what is a good shot for him.
And for him, an incredible shooter, this means plenty of shots from anywhere on the court.
I feel like he may be "underutilized" on a 73-win Warriors squad that includes Klay Thompson, etc.
But if you asked him to put up 40 shots a game playing on a team with one of the NBA's worst offenses - it would be a whole different story.
