    Era's can carry over because some of the guys from 80's played until the early 00's. I basically named players from the 80's and 90's. nowitski, pierce, and ray allen are the last of the era from the 90's

    leonard, melo, derozen, cp, paul george, kyrie, mccollum, thompson, durant, hayward after learning from kobe... who else? i know i'm missing a few that dont stand out. I can't think of no more than 15 that shoot well with the midrange and 3 ball. Use to easily name 30.

    are u sayin that shoot well midrange or that shoot well with both? i was chattin with my homie about midrange being deader than niggas used to say it was when rip hamilton was playin but i think i underestimated the amount of guys who can hit that shot consistently

    melo n derozan good from midrange but so much 3

    then we also got imo

    curry(of fuckin course)
    aldridge
    conley
    marc gasol
    lillard
    AD
    Barnes
    Markieff morris
    etc

    all pretty good-great with the midrange shot imo

    Man guys today miss wide open shots can't shoot free throws and refuse the mid-range j. Years back most white boys on the court were pure. Most guards u could leave wide open. The Chuck person Hershey Hawkins Dana barrow Danny ainge paxon Craig Hodges type player got phased out for athletics 6'5-6'7 wings cuz of size and athleticism/upside... they niggas can't shoot. Also centers and pf ie the smits Kurt Thomas Oakley types hit mid-range jumpers in they sleep... that git phased out for dumb hustle niggas and defensive Deandre Jordan types who once again can't shoot. Ain't no way u can argue dudes today as a whole shoot better cuz they don't.

    So many wrongs.

    I knew i forgot some but yeah i was talking the midrange and both.
    I'm also starting to see some point guards that can't shoot free throws.
    Look at Lonzo Ball and Fultz. They're shooting below 70%

    I'll agree about the mid range getting phased out, but to act like guys are just now bad free throw shooters like shaq, olden polynice and Chris dudley don't exist is wrong. Big men can shoot better today then back in the day IMO

    I think Melo is the best Mid range J'er since Kobe retired. If u watch his highlights when he has a great game he often puts on a clinic wit mid range J's

    His j is great but he shoots a lot of bad ones off the dribble or contested ones like Kobe which make his percentage go down

    I agree with the responses for the most part but I cant stand it when a shooter passes up an open 3 for a mid range shot!

    I see your point but I don't think you have to be pure to make the open 3 more often than not in my opinion.

    Its practically a shooting drill.
