As far as range, efficiency and difficulty, Curry is the best 3-pointer in the history of the game already. He just need the clutch factor, and playoff experience to add. Then he'll be the GOAT 3-point shooter.

It's not off the screen...it's using screens to get open, ala Kyle Korver or Ray Allen in Boston. On the Warriors team Klay Thompson >>> Curry at using screens to get open. Curry is the pg so he uses screen and roll. That is part of dribbling and creating separation rating, as dribbling and ability to separate is what creates the shooting opportunity.

Not saying he can't do it, but the true off the screen players are usually sg's. Rip is still the absolute best ever to use them imo.

He has the GOAT peak 3-point shooting, but a 1 season peak does not equal the best. At least wait a couple of seasons before saying that. Longevity/consistency should always be a factor.

Dirk doesn't need screens to get open shots. He does it himself. So that 3/10 should go away

He needs not a single screen son
