they were long 2s because there was no 3 line, if that's what you mean. A shot from the corner is a 3 pointer today.
Is Dave DeBusschere on there? Walt Frazier? Bill Bradley? The entire Knicks starting 5 could shoot from anywhere, including Willis Reed. Lou Hudson. Jim McMillian, Norm Van Lier. Chet Walker was a driving slashing forward but he had a sweet mid range game.
Although he stayed low most of the time, Elvin Hayes was good to 20 feet. Julius Erving wasn't a 3 point shooter but he was also great to 20 feet. David Thompson could shoot, but Dan Issel could shoot literally any
where on the court out to 18 feet. Any all-time thread that talks about unstoppable scorers is a joke if Dan Issel is not on the list.
Pistol Pete on that list? Dude could shoot pretty good.
edit did you ever hear of Ernie DiGregorio ? Ernie D!!! One of the most incredible, Pistol type players I've ever seen but got injured real fast played on the Braves with McAdoo
