1989:

27.5 ppg on 50.1 / 47.8 / 81.6 (4.1 3PA's per game)

That man could really shoot that thing... Pretty tall for a SG, athletic, strong, extremely quick release, great off-ball moving really quickly, good post-game and inside moves too... After an early prime, got traded become a journeyman and went through constant injuries, though. Only area in terms of shooting that he wasn't elite was at the FT line.
