Best scorer at each postion....
ok, we have a topic "best offensive player" already, now its best scorer at each spot
C-Yao when healthy
SF-Durant or carmelo.. to me its tied really, to close to call
i love nash as a scorer. terrific shooter from everywhere on the court. he makes gorgeously creative leaners and floaters and runners and can finish with either hand
Nash is a constant 50-40-90 guy year after year. For those who don't know. 50% from the field, 40% from behind the arm, 90% from the charity stripe.
he comes up big down the stretch too both from the field and line
Rondo could be if he didn't pass so much. He's got some nice fakes and shakes in his bag of tricks
he penetrates great but doesnt have a mid range and he doesnt even know what a 3pt is
I think its pretty close between nash, d will, and Cp3 for best scoring PG. And I think Brook lopez is the best scoring center now (but depending on Yao's health he could be better than Brook).
Chris Paul is the best scoring PG in the NBA. Nash can shoot better, but Paul is the best scoring PG in the NBA when healthy
I agree with your list at this point. I think D. Williams is such a better scorer and has more size than Paul. If he wasn't averaging around 10 assists every year, he could be averaging 27-28 ppg if that was his focus, but it doesn't have to be his focus, so...
I don't like this mindset that Rondo can't shoot 3s. If you've seen the times when he has had to shoot them he actually makes a good %, he just understands with Pierce, Sheed and Allen on his team shooting long bombs isn't his role. For example, his step back 3 in the Finals this year, and if you watched the game of HORSE at the All-Star game you'll see he went neck and neck with Durant for 3+ shots from long range in a row before finally stumbling.
I'm sorry, he's a fantastic all around player, but Rondo is an AWFUL 3-point shooter. AWFUL. He has shot .244 from 3 for his career. That is even more horrendous when you consider that he rarely will even attempt the 3 ball unless he is wide open. He has made 43 career 3-pointers.
Why are we even talking about Rondo in this thread? lol Very good PG but He is not a good scorer period.
Did you watch the finals? ... lobe played 8 feet off of rondo for 7 straiht games! ... rondo is not even a threat from midrange let alone the 3 point line- -- plus i don't even think he finishes as well at the rim as guys like d will or d rose
stop putting rondo down, he dominates in the paint, put him on the c's and take away pierce, allen, and garnett, and hell get his easily. Im sorry but im tired of all of the rondo haters who pretend like what he did in the series against the cavs and actually the whole playoffs never happened.
"If he wasn't averaging around 10 assists every year, he could be averaging 27-28 ppg if that was his focus, "
No he couldn't. Smh, come on guy....
Chris Paul has averaged 20 PPG twice, once on 48.8% from the floor and another on 50% from the floor. And got at least 11 apg both times. Williams has never averaged 20 ppg in his NBA life, 11 apg or not. So he's not a better scorer
KD or Melo
