Quentin Richardson, in the 2004-05 season with Phoenix, was the scariest three-point shooter (led NBA in three-pointers attempted, made, and won the 3-point contest at All-Star Weekend).

Hasn't been the same since he left Phoenix.

Those were really thin years at center for the east. The best centers in the league at those times were Shaq, Ben Wallace, and later Yao by the time Z made it to the 2005 ASG. Ben Wallace was clearly the 2nd best center in the league those 2 years Z made the all star team. The same Ben Wallace who was an inferior version of Mutombo. The same Mutumbo who was never even close to being a top 5 center in the league at any time during his prime (Olajuwon, Ewing, Robinson, Shaq, Mourning easily better).

Bottom line is that when there's a huge vacuum of talent certain years at certain positions, an all star berth means shit. Even mediocre talents like BJ Armstrong and Tyrone Hill made an all star team (95 was an incredibly thin year for the east).
