Brook Lopez averaged 4.8 field-goal attempts at the rim during the 2010-2011 season, making three of those attempts (62.6 percent successful).
He actually averaged more shot attempts from three to nine feet away from the basket (5.4), though he was less successful, shooting 47 percent from that range.
Lopez would benefit from becoming more aggressive in the low post and scoring more proficiently at the rim.
Compared to three of the more dominant centers in the league—Dwight Howard, Andrew Bynum and Amare Stoudemire—Lopez's inside scoring doesn't measure up very favorably.
Howard shot 75.4 percent at the rim last season, averaging seven attempts per game. Bynum made three quarters of his shots from the inside. Stoudemire only made about four out of every 6.2 attempts, but he has a strong outside game to complement that.
Lopez has some range, but not enough to sacrifice his game at the rim.
