Default Re: GOAT Full Court and Half Court players? Players who excelled in both styles of play?

The best perimeter full court players I've seen, besides LeBron: Pippen, Wade, and Kidd spring to mind.

But you asked for players that excelled at both full and half court. I said Jordan because he was equally dominant in both. There was no holes in his game from either perspective. For as dominant as LeBron is in the full court ... I still see flaws in his half court game.

Good stuff. Dominance in both sets was part of what I asked in the OP, but I was just trying to drive conversation. This topic isn't talked about terribly often, so any and all insights contribute to the discussion.
