Peja was absolutely a superstar and one of the best 3 point scorers I've ever seen in real life.

I dont think many superstars went up against a defensive all nba first team player on their first game though.

How many players in history scored 30 in their debut, less than 5? The fact you use this as a criticism of him shows how truly good you think he is

Elton Brand: 14/8 on 3-11 shooting

The shooting is what makes it turrible*

Wilt Chamberlain had a terrible NBA debut. He scored only 43 points and pulled down only 28 rebounds on October 24th, 1959.

Peja's 04 season is better than any Klay or George has put up.
AW was 6 in 2004

No.



Charles Barkley - 11/6/3/1/1 with 5 TOV's
Shaq - 12/18/2/1/3 with 8 TOV's and fouled out (compared to what was to come, it was a terrible game)
Nash - 0/0/0/0/0 on 0/1 shooting (TBF, dude played only 5 minutes)
Ewing - 18/6 on 21 shots and 4 FT's
Durant - 18/5 on 22 shots and 4 FT's
MJ - 16/6/7 on 16 shots and 7 FT's with 5 TOV's
Melo - 12/7 on 15 shots and 8 FT's

Carmelo was never close to a superstar. His impact doesn't even sniff borderline superstar status.

So basically, none of those players' debut games came close to AI's debut game. Good to know! Top 3 SG confirmed.

Curry: 14/2/7/4/0 on 58% shooting in 36 minutes.
The strangest thing is that in this whole game, Curry took only 1 three, and missed it.

You'd have to be an absolute potato (which you are judging by every single post I've read of yours today) to have Iverson over Wade. Iverson isn't even top 5 for that matter: Jordan, kobe, Wade, West, Drexler.
