Rip's midrange game is overrated.

His "come off screen game" isn't. But his midrange game is. Wide open 18 foot jumpers don't equal a midrange game. They equal intelligence and speed to get wide open.

I'll go with Wade.

Edit: Cassell and Dirk are also great choices.

Melo's gotta be atleast top 5, I'd take his over Rips as he's doing it over like 2 defenders.

I don't like his attitude, but I love Melo's mid-range game

Cassell, Wade, Bryant, Pierce and Dirk are all damn good.

Terry's midrange game was extemely nice in the playoffs. I'd say Wade was the only one better, and Cassel was probably on par. But Terry was automatic coming off those on the ball screens and pulling up from the elbow.
