Let's be honest, 3 point shooters are gimmick players. Look how limited Neal and Danny Green was when Miami's rotation was clicking. They were shut down.
But by shutting them down, you were opening up the paint for Duncan. Look at Duncan's numbers in game 6. The same game that Green was nowhere to be found.
And no, they're not gimmick players in today's league. Spacing is huge in today's league because of the zone. You need deadeye shooters to open the lane up for guys like Rose, Parker, etc.
