I don't have prime Malone's shooting numbers, so it's hard to compare, but I suspect at least a few above 40% mid-range shooting seasons when he shot as high as 39% on J's in his twilight years.
Blake is an elite passing big and one of the best post players in the L. Second most points at the rim last season after Lebron. His shooting had improved every season. I don't doubt he'll be 40% jumpshooter. He did just finish his 4th season.
If anything BG is better at getting to the rim in the half court
