Curry almost shooting them out at the end by chasing the record was funny

If thereís video of his games, Iím not sure why we havenít gotten at least a sample size of what his shooting splits would have been like.

Target score basketball is so much more compelling and exciting

There's a little bit of Curry in him but with way less coordination and incredibly messy/gifted passing. His condition prevented him from being able to use his stamina on defense so he was worthless on D, but all the same. His impact is far greater than his actual level of greatness as a player, so it's probably fine.

I mostly just want Manu on this list. Throw somebody out.

Hell no. If anything I'd advocate for throwing Melo out but he had a good olympics once and got to the conference finals once because of Chauncey Billups, so stuck with the idea of him being a top player forever.

I think they did an admirable job with current players, but AD has never moved the needle for me. He always is just a hall of very good player, but never on the right team with the right health to push him over the edge. And obviously the health concerns are not going the right direction.

Some people are up in arms for Kyrie not making the list... for what? Please tell me for what.

Still amazing those thunder teams having three top 75 players at once and never putting it together.

They made it to the finals when Durant was 23, Westbrook was 23, Harden was 22, and Serge was 22. It's not really a case of "they had so much time!" they traded a HOF at 22 years old because they didn't want to pay him. He had a breakout third year and decided they'd rather pay Kendrick Perkins and trade for Kevin Martin/a mid first round pick.

Remember when Elton Brand got Baron Davis to sign with the Clippers and then he left for Philly

I tend to agree that Pistol would be a lot better statistically if there was a 3p line, especially if he was conditioned growing up and training to look for that shot. He was a fairly natural range shooter at a time when very few were (West, Greer, Barry). He was super flashy and fun, and for his time he took shots at distance that no one else took.

It's hard to take someone from the 70s who never trained for the modern style with modern methods and judge them based purely on their game then, but pure skill wise, Pistol Pete had it all offensively.

At the same time though, its also very stupid that he kept taking 20-30 foot shots at a time when those shots counted the same as a 10 footer. Yes, that means he'd have been better if there was a 3p line then, but if someone who was a ~40% 3p shooter now kept taking 35 footers at ~30% we'd all call him a fucking idiot, even if in the future a 4 point shot is introduced with 25% being the league average.

Almost as shitty as The Cavs waiving the team option for Boozer so they could give him an extension and then he took the deal with the Jazz lol.

Fuck off. Pistol Pete is the greatest ballhandler of all-time and Manu was most effective as a Sixth Man.

It has been reported that former LSU coach Dale Brown charted every shot Maravich scored and concluded that, if his shots from three-point range had been counted as three points, Maravich's average would have totaled 57 points per game.[13][14]
Iím saying he hit at least 5 a game if we could go back and install the line for every shot he took in the NBA.

I don't doubt that he would have been better with a 3 point line and modern spacing but he was not remotely close to the best ball handler of all time please give me a break.

Pistol Pete spent more time in the gym fucking around with the ball than any other player in history. I canít find the source now but I recall reading he sometimes spent over 14 hours a day practicing. Get bent if you wanna disregard him as the GOAT ballhandler because heís from before your time.
