How do you like this list? Also, if we made a distinction between best shooters at the 2-spot versus best 2 guards, who would be in the former? Off the top of my head, here’s who I’d put in there:
I can think of a bunch of others, but none that really stand out ahead of the pack. Oh, I’m tempted to put Klay Thompson in there. Some other players that come to mind: Jeff Hornacek, Reggie Miller…By the way, I think Ray Allen didn’t really have the killer instinct, and that hurts him in my mind. Shoot, if you put Reggie Miller into Ray Allen’s body, and I think that player might have been one of the best shooting guards of all time.
Oh, I think Clyde Drexler has to be in the first list, and I’d probably choose him over Harden. I also like Mitch Richmond, but he probably doesn’t belong in there.
