I'm fine with speed and bh having some say in ability to shoot 3s, but I think it has too much. I'm with poncho on this one. Craig Hodges, Tim Legler, Steve Kerr, etc. The top 20 all time 3 pt shooters have many more slow guys that can't dribble in it than fast ones that can.
Has anyone done any research? Would a 80 spd, 80 bh, 50 per shoot better (as I suspect) than a 50/50/80 guy?
That's because they were all great shooters. I can't really think of any guys who could shoot like them who could handle like an elite PG.
I think there's a causation/correlation problem.
Yes, the best shooters of all time happened to be catch-and-shoot guys. But that's because they were great shooters. If you took Reggie Miller's shooting ability, and made him as fast as John Wall with the ball handling skills of Steve Nash, don't you think he would have been even better, as tough as that is to fathom?
The problem is that the 99 per, 90 bh/spd guy doesn't really exist in real life. It does, however, exist in this game. I don't necessarily this that guys should be better
at shooting 3s, but he should be able to shoot more at the same or better efficiency, and his success should be less dependant on other players.
