Wallace and it's not close. Ben Gordon had a nice peak as a pure shooter but for a short time there, Wallace was a beast.

Depends on the team. Gordon was ahead of his time offensively and would have loved to chuck up 9 3s a game in modern day, but in his time he was still a good gunner. Wallace shooting is a serious offensive problem but he was a nice defender and slasher. I think Wallace peaked higher but only for about one season.

Wallace was an impact player on both ends of the court. Gordon was always a poor defender. But peak Gordon would be so much more valuable today than he was in his prime. He'd be jacking up 7-8 3PAs/game.

Wallace. Crash wasn’t that far off as a scorer even if drive/cutting dependent while possibly being All Defense worthy. Also better as a rebounder. Neither notable playmakers.
