Hornacek might be better, but not that much better, my point is only to draw comparison and I think Kapono has similar caliber/ability - shooting the three...
Also, Hornacek WAS better than Jason Kapono... during his final years and playoff seaons... I think Kapono can develop the same way.. with bosh JO and calderon playing significant minutes this comin' year
What about the year when the Rockets won? They only had Olajuwon and Cassell, the SF/SGs weren't superstars as well (mario elie, kenny smith?)
I guess my point is not all good teams have an mediocre SF/SG... an excellent perimeter shooter to complement is often the answer.
All-Star PG, PF and C would be sufficient to be a contender
Sorry, but I question your historical basketball knowledge. Comparing Jason Kapono to Jeff Hornacek is ridiculous. They are both white and can shoot the 3 well...comparison's end there. Hornacek average 20/5/5 on 51% FG when he played for Phoenix. He put up 19/4/7 the next year in Philly. Then he had all those Utah years.
And Houston actually had great guard play. Horry was also a young force at the 3. You say Kenny Smith as if he was bad...he was quite good. Elie, Maxwell, Clyde...top quality guard rotation to team with Hakeem. Cassell wasn't even starting..he was just another member of a great backcourt.
Anyway, not really relevant to the Raptors.
