Curry is bad also bad at contested mid-range:

https://stats.nba.com/player/201939/...nType=Playoffs


So he is NOT a good contested jumpshooter and therefore doesn't compare to bird or kobe.. ..



He's also nowhere near the impact offensively that everyone thinks:


Playoffs


08' Lakers ORtg .with.'' Kobe - 109.9
08' Lakers ORtg w/out Kobe -.. 93.7

Team ORtg changed more when Kobe left the floor or came in than Curry.. So Kobe had greater offensive impact, while also being a much better contested jumpshooter

Jordan shot threes well

1) When it mattered - 43% on 3.3 attempts in 91-93' Finals.. 35.2% on 2.2 attempts in 85-93' playoffs

2) When he tried - he attempted less than 1.5 every year except 2 years (90, 93) when he attempted 3+ and shot 38% and 35%

Ordan only shot open 3's... and didn't even have to run around and work for it. Defense gave him 0 respect.

I mean, I'm actually sitting here and read the entire thread trying to figure out what the **** the point of this thread is.

I don't understand how Steph making a bad judgment play, traveling to step back and take a three, impacts his ability as a shooter.

Am I missing something or what the ****?

Are you saying his bad judgment actually has an impact on his shooting ability?

Are you saying that since he didn't have confidence to take the midrange shot, that it somehow affects his ability to shoot?

I didn't think anyone still questioned if Steph was the GOAT shooter. I don't give a **** if he never attempted 1 mid range jumper in his entire career and just made a bunch of 3's....He's still the GOAT shooter. I mean, he can make contested, off the dribble 3's from wherever the hell he wants and I'm supposed to believe because other guys are better from CLOSER that they're better shooters? What sense does that make? He's a better shooter than MJ, Bird, West, all these guys.

Steph is shooting from farther away from the rim, set shot or off the dribble, how exactly is this not more impressive? Its not like he's shooting 10% from three. The dude is extremely efficient therefore in today's game, him taking a 3 in that situation for a guy of his caliber is absolutely a logical decision. 3 is more than 2 and its Steph freaking Curry, not Mckinney. And it was still a wide open shot that he actually made.

Like, what is this thread about again?
