LeBron's best 3 point shooting season came last year at 36 with 2.4 attempts a game. Tmac's 39 came at 6 attempts a game. Even with more than double the volume he converted better percentages from outside.

I like both players, but to try and pass LeBron along as a better jumpshooter than Tmac is just plain wrong.

These young ins don't remember MAC.
