Default Re: Best shooting big man currently in the NBA??

Are you not aware of Dirk or Durant? Bigs that can shoot are nothing unusual in the NBA, ever since Bob Pettit (probably even before him) there's always been some assortment of 6-9+ guys that can stretch the floor with a highly polished jumper. He's not quite 6-9, but Kevin Love is another 'big' that stretches the floor well with a long range jumper.

He's 6-9 w/o shoes, not close to 7 feet. However, 6-9 does meet the OP's criteria and he's absolutely up there with Dirk as far as best big shooter in the league.

When I think bigs, I think guys who play the PF or C spots. So u gotta roll with Dirk, who's the best shooting big man of all time. U gotta be able to stick it from practically anywhere not just midrange. Dirk and Love are the top two in my book as of now.

yeah its Dirk, Bosh, Love.
Cartier Martin shot .397% from 3, at 4 attempts per game.
Jeff Green shot .385% on 5 attempts per game.

So those are 2 more.

So nobody thinks Teletovic is a great shooter for his size?

If Teletovic is considered a 'Big man', then so are guys like Peja, Durant, Novak etc.
