Default Would you be a Dead-eye shooter, a slasher, or an Athletic freak w/o fundamentals?

If you were in the league.

You don't need fundamentals to be an athletic freak

Shooters will always find a place in the league.

Dead-eye shooters have the better shot at being in the league longer, as long as they're at least somewhat decent athletically. As in, not fat or a 5'5" skinny weakling. I'd go with the athletic freak w/o fundamentals though, just personal preference. It's much easier to learn/train footwork, handles, shooting, etc. than it is to learn or train Wiggins's vertical, Westbrook's quickness, Rose's body control, Iverson's stamina, Lebron's durability (outside of the occasional cramp), Ben Wallace's strength, etc.

Honestly, I would rather be Javale McGee than Tyreke Evans or Kyle Korver.

Not that they're equal (they aren't).
