Maurice Harkless gets $500k bonus by not attempting three-pointer
Lest we think this is a coincidence, Harkless was asked before Wednesday's game if he'd consider taking a three considering his contract situation. It was his 68th made three-pointer of the season, on 192 attempts, raising his 3PT percentage to 35.4. "He's got the hot hand", the Blazers' play-by-play announcer said; "Let it fly, Moe!"
Harkless, 23, finished the season at a career-best 35.1 percent. And the margin was three points.
The hilarious thing about this is that Harkless didn't attempt a single three in the last three games he played in (the games didn't really matter).
As Bobby Marks of The Vertical pointed out on Wednesday ahead of the Blazers' last game, Harkless would receive a $500,000 bonus if he finished the season shooting above 35 percent from 3-point range. The box score for the Blazers' 103-100 loss to the Pelicans shows Harkless took six shots. The New York City native said he had been aware of the bonus for about a month, and after averaging almost three 3-point attempts per game, Harkless took only 30 over the final 21 games.
For this reason, Moe Harkless is the clear choice for the 2016-17 NBA Most Valuable Player Award. The regular season is over now.
