Wanna know what's wrong with Roy?

Look no further than his 82games.com shot profile 2009/2010 vs. 2008/2009.  Brandon's inside attempts are down 12%, with his inside scoring down to 3.9 ppg from 7.0 ppg.  Brandon is scoring slightly more from outside this season, and more of that outside scoring is coming off an assist (a LOT more).  For all the bitching and moaning about Roy not being a team player or playing off the ball enough - the stats say this is an arguable point (his assisted percentage is down on the inside shots - but so are the shots).  Roy is also making his outside shots at an equivalent rate.

The big thing for me is that the criticism of Roy as a selfish player is completely irrational and baseless, relative to 2008/2009.  Assisted percentage is up to 41% from 33%; passer rating is up; assists per 48 min are up.  Roy is not the problem.

Miller isn't going inside as much, either - and his outside shooting is atrocious.
