In the NBA, many of the best in the game are the players who are able to not only get to the rim, but are able to finish there.
If you play basketball, you're taught at a young age that the closer a shot is to the basket, the better it is.
It's simple: the highest percentage shots are those closest to the hole.
Using last season's statistics (the numbers from this year do not provide a large enough sample), I've put together a list of those who not only get to the rim at a high rate, but also connect on a large percentage of those shots.
Now before you go crazy over some of the guys who were left off, let me explain the criteria, which is provided on the next slide.
Please read this before you comment.
Remember, this list is comprised of the elite players in this category. It is not necessarily indicative of how good someone is overall, but you will find that a good number of these guys are considered the best around.
