    Yeah, he's a career 35.5% 3-point shooter. He doesn't make the top 100 candidates for that question. And that's not an anti-Booker take. It's just not his game.

    Because any "who do you want taking this 3" question has, at this point, only one objectively correct answer. So put whoever the fuck you want in for other choices, it doesn't matter

    I'm probably way late to this party, but I watched some Game of Zones eps on YouTube yesterday and enjoyed some of them. I had always seen the tweets but ignored them because it was Bleacher Report. Some of the early ones are dumb, but I liked the two they've done this year.

    Put Marc Gasol on that team over Draymond and you got something.

    If you include Curry it’s pretty much going to be a requirement to put someone other than Harden at SG because that backcourt is going to get torched on defense

    I get what they're going for in terms of positions and such, but Charles Barkley (who was awesome) can't be on that 80s team over Kareem.

    A career 39% 3 point shooter and never had a season higher than 42.9% doesn’t belong with Steph and Ray.

    So... in a game? Probably Steph. Just shooting warming up? Give me Klay.

    Klay is a robot in warmups and just doesn't miss. I watched him make 27 in a row from various points beyond the arc before a game in Orlando a few seasons ago... I would trust that dude.

    I'm guessing you weren't old enough to see him play at his peak. At Reggie's peak, he was the most dangerous 3 point player in the league. To the point of, if you are down 1 or 2 MJ takes the shot. If you're down 3 it's Reggie. Reggie and chuck person were the pre splash brothers.

    The player who doesn't belong is going to be Booker. Replace him with Klay or Larry legend.

    Since he came into the league, Carmelo has more game winners(and a higher % made rate) than any player in the league.
