8. Brandan Wright, Dallas Mavericks
Brandan Wright probably isn’t a name that popped into your mind when you read the title of this article. His name didn’t pop into mine, either.
It’s hard to argue with the statistics, though. In the 2012-13 season, 69.1 percent of Wright’s field goal attempts from inside five feet found the bottom of the net. That’s a very high percentage and it deserves to be recognized.
It doesn’t matter how it’s done as long as it gets done. Wright doesn’t wow fans with his footwork or mechanics, but he finds a way to finish at the rim.
