Everybody seems to think that Tatum is a better shooter than Jackson… but look at the percentages. Jackson is better from 2 and 3.

This one was a stupid take from the start. Tatum was a far better FT line shooter than Jackson, and FT shooting is a better predictor of shooting at the NBA level than college 3pt%.

That’s also before considering the fact that Tatum tanked his shooting percentages because he really struggled coming back from injury at the start of the season. Tatum was scorching hot by the ACC tournament (e.g. 6/7 from 3 against a #1 ranked UVA defense en route to the ACC title).
