Defensive Shot Contest (Work in Progress)

We wanted to see how much wingspan plays a part in contesting shots, so we made a shooter with a 90 3 ball with default wingspan. Then we made three defenders with 70 Shot Contest, who were the same height as the shooter, with Min, Default, and Max wingspan to see if wingspan had an affect on the Green Window and Make Percentage. We also wanted to see how a light contest looked vs a heavy contest. This test was done without any badges. We took 200 shots for each category.

Default *** mS ** mS **.**%
Maximum *** mS ** mS **.**%
Heavy Contest

Default *** mS ** mS **.**%
Maximum *** mS ** mS **.**%

 

Rebounding (Work in Progress)

For this test we wanted to see how much wingspan plays a part in getting rebounds. We went to freestyle in 2ku with two identical centers except for the wingspan differences. We placed them in front of the rim side by side. We then shot the ball short from the top of the key. We jumped at the same time and only counted it if they had an equal opportunity to get the rebound. We did 200 rebounds for each “battle”.

Shooting Open Shots

We wanted to see if wingspan had an affect on the shots speed or Green window. So we made three shooters with Minimum, Default, and Maximum wingspan and all other attributes were the same. We took 200 threes with each and recorded the stats.

Dunking Success (Work in Progress)

We wanted to see if Wingspan helped with finishing dunks. For this test we took a 6’6 Slasher with no badges and repeatedly dunked in traffic 200 times for each wingspan. We only recorded results from actual dunk attempts.

Conclusion

Although it doesn’t show up in the attributes, Changing your wingspan adds a lot of hidden benefits. Based on the results we would recommend always maxing your wingspan no matter what archetype/position you choose. The small bonus in shooting attributes from min wingspan does not make up for worse rebounding, defense, and finishing ability.
