Ingles, who is averaging 12.3 points per game for the league-leading Jazz, sheepishly called it “kinda cool, I guess” that he could end up having a statistical claim to the most efficient shooting campaign in NBA history. Kyle Korver, who had a .699 true shooting percentage for the 2014-15 Atlanta Hawks, is the only non-center in the top 10. Like Korver with that 60-win team, Ingles is both a beneficiary of a ball-moving system and a critical cog who helps keep it humming. Utah’s 33-year-old non-dunking wing sits atop a statistical category normally reserved for rim-running big men, the result of a steady development of counters to opponents’ scouting reports and constant tinkering of an expanding tool set.
“I shot 14 3s tonight and I was saying without a guard on me that I was going to get up 15,” Love said. “A little bit different. Their efficiency had to be extremely high in that era, because they just weren’t getting up as many 3s. It wasn’t a pace-and-space league like it is now. “So while I passed him in the numbers, you still have to recognize Mark Price for being one of the all-time best shooters in this league. So that number isn’t really … his number isn’t really indicative of how great of a true shooter he actually was, especially from that 3-point line.” Price’s .409 3-point percentage ranks fourth on the Cavs’ list behind now-Golden State Warriors coach Steve Kerr (.472), Kyle Korver (.454) and Wesley Person (.422). Love’s percentage with the Cavs is .375.

Kyle Korver unsure about future

Korver was on “The Rematch” with Etan Thomas on Basketball News recently and discussed his current status. “It’s a good question; I’m not sure. After the bubble, it was such a quick turnaround and I didn’t feel like I had really prepared for another season. I believe in honoring the game,” Korver told Thomas on the podcast. “I don’t want to take a up a spot on a team [if I’m not ready to play]. I didn’t feel like I had really put in that time and that work. I have not signed any [retirement] paperwork yet, so… But I don’t know, it also feels good. It’s a conversation that I have with my wife on most days, so we’ll see… I don’t know, I’m not sure.”

Kyle Korver unsure about playing again

To what extent have you had talks about signing with an NBA team this season? Korver: “I’m not sure. I’ve talked to a few teams about it. Coming out of the bubble, I believe in honoring the game. I believe you honor the season with a good offseason. Coming out of the bubble with the quick turnaround, I didn’t feel I really did that. So I don’t want to cheat the game. If I want to go play, I want to go play well. I haven’t signed any paperwork. My wife asks me this question every day. It’s one I have a hard time finding my exact words for. So I haven’t signed paperwork yet. I’ve enjoyed being with my family, and it’s been a challenging season across the board for the league and for the players. But we’ll see. I don’t know.”

How have you tried to use your platform as a white person? Korver: “I believe as a white man in America, I certainly have a role in these conversations. I’ve been careful with how you speak, where you speak and what you say. The first thing you try to do is do a lot of listening and you try to amplify other voices and understand people that are marginalized in all these different spaces. At some point, you need to step up and speak out. I think the last few years it’s been a journey of me trying to find my voice and figure out the things that are helpful for me to say.”
