I don't see why people would compare Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf to Stephen Curry. The best player comparison to Abdul-Rauf is that Chris Jackson dude who played for the Nuggets years ago.

Haha you beat me to it. Well done.

But ya just another thing on Curry's resume to show he is the greatest shooter of all time.

I can't tell if you're joking only insofar as Curry is as deadly if not moreso from the mid-range as from the 3.

Its from a different thread where a poster made the argument that Curry shouldnt be considered as one of the best shooters of all time because only 7% of his shots come from 10-16ft. Clyde is being sarcastic.

Ah. We'll, that is silly because Curry is clearly one of the best shooters all time. All that's left are era debates about contact when it comes to whether Curry is the #1 shooter of all time.

He’s very good at FTs. Honestly I’m impressed. So many stars struggle with them. No hate from me on this one - he’s just elite.

Okay, but who cares? Yay, you beat out Mark Price! Wow! Peja Stojakovic and JJ Redick. Big names.

Huh, it's almost like whoever was making that arbitrary 1200 cutoff number didn't want to include some players...
