Thanks. Both for long 2s, right?

Is there anyone missing in the OP?

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 anywhere 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

One of the first pre-NBA players to shoot from the equivalent of 3-point range was Bobby McDermott. He was an absolute legend from long range.

The first great shooter in the BAA/NBA was Joe Fulks. He was one of the pioneers of the jump shot and used it to great effect, leading the league in scoring and winning the first ever championship. I've seen footage of him hitting the 20-footer with relative ease.

George Yardley was a good early shooter. Probably best suited to long two pointers.

Dolph Schayes had three-point range.

Bill Sharman was phenomenal. He could surely hit the three in today's game.

Sam Jones had long two point range.

Louie Dampier was arguably the best 3-point shooter in the ABA.

I have footage of Sharman sinking a 60+ foot buzzer beater during an ASG, not that that was his typical range lol but he was a shooter for sure
