Kobe, he takes so many, but he makes some of them so it's usually ignored.

Monta Ellis takes some rather ridiculous shots. Kobe used to but he's improved upon that this season and is shooting 47% from the field because of that. Although he still has nights where he'll revert back to the 2011 "give me the damn ball and get out the way" Kobe Bryant.

I wouldn't say Kobe because he actually makes some of them. But I'd say byron mullens. If you've ever seen him play, you'd see all the crazy shots he takes

Kobe has never shot under 40%. So I wouldn't say him.

Its gotta be Brandon Jennings.

Kobe, Brandon Jennings, Westbrook, and Nick Young all come to mind with poor shot selection. Kobe's poor shot selection tend to get overlooked cause of how great he is, but he does take a lot of shots when really he should look for a teammate. JR Smith is another gunner, but his shot selection has improved some this year. I guess you could say Melo has poor shot selection as well as he is a volume scorer like Kobe is.

It's gotta be between Jr Smith, OJ Mayo, and Monta Ellis. I vote JR Smith.

When the Lakers are down and they need a savior, Kobe comes in and jacks up shots.

Russel double covered doesn't pass to a wide open KD and launches up a 360 behind the back between the legs step back. Jumper

I reckon there are a few players that can lead this category. A lot of players take silly shots or wild shots from time to time but others do it more frequently.

There is also the category of players who just take rubbish shots - not difficult, not crazy, just terrible shots.

There are a few "chuckers" in the league and my top 5 would look like this....

1. Nick Young - can hit some good shots but also tries to shoot to get hot and shoot if he's not hot

2. Jordan Crawford - the Wiz struggle for offence but he takes some terrible shots

3. JR Smith - getting a lot better but that is half because of Melo. With Carmelo out we saw just how many crappy shots JR would still take

4. Monta Ellis - he is a great scorer but more of a slasher. When his shot is on, he is quite good but when it's not he still shoots and forces shots

5. Dion Waiters - hard to blame a rookie as his game will develop but started out as a chucker and needs to get out of that habit or just take better shots

Can't believe more people haven't said Nick Young, the guy thinks he can hit from wherever he catches the ball!

Westbrook will also force it at certain points.. Good when he's hitting, not so good when he's bricking.
