Are the other eligible three shooters.
those guys seem fine to me, but it doesnt really give me the information i was looking for - its really about how you plan to play your team. is this a team going to be shooting an average amount of 3s? slightly more, a lot more, slightly less, etc... 2 different coaches could give very different answers for the same team.
if you see yourself taking a normal amount of 3s or more, i would probably go with the -1. i dont subscribe to speed being a significant defensive rating at the 4, so i disagree with whoever posted about that. also, the low post at the 3 vs a poor shot blocker thing, ive conceptually thought the same thing, tested it, and disagree the effect is substantial. shot blocking is not useless at the 3, like it is at the 2, but i dont think there is a profound difference between the impact on different kinds of scoring at the 3.
anyway, this is a really good player, and matching him up against the lesser defender makes sense to me, in the general sense. i just dont see it as detailed as some of the other guys :) if you don't take a lot of 3s as a team, id definitely try to get some out of him with a 0, to keep your team from being too 1 dimensional.
