Default Who would you say is the best pure shooter in the '08 Draft?

If you need a guy to stand there and take rhythm jumpers, who is it? Not to familiar with these guys aside from the top guys.

Well Darnell Harris won the 3pt shooting contest this year, so I guess you would have to say him.

He's not really a "pure" shooter, so this is off the topic, but I think people underrate Brandon Rush. He has NBA 3pt range, has great quickness and first step, has all the physical attributes for a NBA SG, plays smart and was the best player of the best college team last year. I think he should definitely go in the lottery.

As far as pure shooters go, there aren't many this year.

I also think that Brandon Rush is a smart Player and very quick!

Best top tier shooters:
Beasley, Bayless, and Mayo

Best mid-level shooters:
CDR, Shan Foster, Brandon Rush, Mario Chalmers, Ryan Anderson, Wayne Ellington, Sonny Weems, Courtney Lee, Richard Roby, Malik Hairston, DeMarcus Nelson, Bryce Taylor, Brian Roberts, Chris Lofton

Best low-level shooters:
Maarty Leunen, Robert Vaden, Pat Calathes, Bo McCalebb, Ronnie Steele, Jaycee Carroll, Lee Cummard, Anthony Morrow

Looking at that list, Carroll is the best, but looking at guys who will play in the NBA, I really like Foster, Lofton, CDR, and Vaden.
