Tim Graham Show: Greatest pure shooter in NBA history: Can it be a center? Can it be done from the FT line?

We didn't anticipate talking about the NBA on this week's edition of "The Tim Graham Show" on Sports Radio 1270 The Fan.

Then Pat from Buffalo called and asked the studio who we would rate the greatest pure shooter in NBA history.

Nothing fancy about that question, but it initiated a fun conversation among co-host Mike Rodak of, Buffalo News senior columnist Jerry Sullivan, Buffalo News writer Jonah Bronstein and me.

Initially, you think about long-range shooting. But hold on a second ...

Sully came up with an inside-the-paint answer of Kareem Abdul-Jabbar that made the studio ponder. Bronstein elevated the discussion by laying out all the different ways a player can shoot and noting versatility being a key to the answer.


"The Tim Graham Show" airs 4-6 p.m. each Wednesday on 1270 Sports Radio The Fan. Listen to archived episodes and subscribe to the podcast on iTunes.
