Ray Allen and Delonte actually have mid-range games unlike most of the league.

KG is way too high. Paul Pierce has a better mid range game than KG, if you want to include a Celtic. I'd also think Kobe should be on there too.

IMO, if you're going to include Garnett you should include Bosh as well.

Depends what you're talking about.

A pull up mid-range game? or a spot up mid-range game ? or both ?

sort by made shots in the 10'-15' and 16'-23' categories and you'll get a pretty good idea of who the best guys are

Even though he's retired, it seemed like Big Z never missed mid range shots off of those pick and pops when I would watch him.

It's easy to hit shots when someone sets you up ie. Allen, KG, Bosh. It's harder when you have to create and shoot i.e Melo, Kobe.


But Dirk, KD, Melo and Kobe are the players I would put among the best.
