Default What if SHAQ had DUNCAN's bankshot?

SHAQS FIRST BASKET

Tim Duncan and his fundamental Bank Shot
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lcZLLZU0OzI


His first basket was a fadeaway, so what if he had a Timmy D like fadeaway bankshot? Capable of using it just as effective as Duncan also...How much does he put up? Or was he better off as is

Shaq would have had a chance at being the GOAT with Duncan's bank shot. But even crazier than that is imagining Shaq with Rick Barry's free throw abilities.

it wouldnt really help him that much, he was already unstoppable, like the other guy said better freethrow shooting would make him better

Effectiveness of Timmy bank shot for the majority of his career has Bennett greatly overstated.

He would be boring and not dominant.

Yeah, it would make no difference whatsoever, except maybe lower his FG% because that bankshot is a much worse shot than Shaq backing down into the paint. Defenders would breath a sigh of relief every time he tried it.

Shaq actually had an amazing drop-step bankshot that was money and pretty much unstoppable.

It wouldn't have made a difference, he had that spin, the drop-step and no-one could keep him out of the paint anyway.
