    Below the rim players are non-existent today; they were headed for extinction when MJ was in the league.

    same reason you took who you did and not Mark Price
    you took guys know for long ball but also had other aspects of the game.

    i did the same thing as you.
    and my team would beat the absolute tar out the one you chose.

    and if the refs allow them to play 90s style of defense, your team may not break 50.

    there is a reason nobody in top 10 career 3 point attempts is in even the top 20 career points list.

    Hell, I just named 4 well known 3-point snipers for starters. If I were going to research this, I wouldn't select my team based on attempts, I'd go with percentage made.

    and you’d lose even worse.

    Steve Kerr, SETH Curry, Hubert Davis are you top 3 in league history in 3 pt %.

    Here you go....

    Top 15 in NBA History in 3 pt FG %:

    Some good ball players, no doubt.
    Want to guess who is the highest ranked carer scorer on that list and where he sits all time?

    (spoiler:) Steph Curry at 70th all time

    Top 15 scorers in NBA history:

    All dunkers except i'll give you Dirk.
    4 of which is on my all star dunk squad.

    Steph would have to :
    A. stay healthy
    B. maintain the 2nd highest average of his career
    for the next 4.5 years (he'd be late 30s by then) just to get to 15th on this list.

    Longetivity will knock Seth and Harris down on the %, and Steph will obviously move way up in scoring. MJ once said Drazen Petrovic was the toughest player to guard he ever faced.

    @Nutriaitch between you and @Jmg you've successfully made the point that just about every successful NBA player throughout history is a dunker. Like I said a few posts back, the below the rim player is extinct. But even the greatest 3-point shooters are successful at that particular skill less than half the time. (Steve Kerr, all-time 3-pt % leader, .454) So we can conclued that a great outside shot is a more rare skill than the dunk.

    no, they just have less value.
    the reward (1 extra point) doesn’t come anywhere near out weighing the risk (a significantly lower FG %).
