Best Player to Wear #3?

I'm skipping #2 because it's quite obviously Moses Malone. Nobody else is really in contention. #3 will be a lot more interesting:

Allen Iverson
Chris Paul
Dwyane Wade
Ben Wallace
Dale Ellis
Other (Please Specify)

00/0 - Robert Parish
1 - Tracy McGrady
2 - Moses Malone

Iverson was a beauty to watch. He carried an average team to the finals. Wade had Shaq and James.

false - Iverson was a ball pounding, system killing chucker whose team was fortunate enough to have played in the weakest conference in the history of the game

he was horrible to watch - just the worst

Re: Best Player to Wear #3?

Clearly it's Wade. AI's MVP was...well, let's not get into that. This is another one where FG% plays a big role. Wade, LeBron, AI, and Jordan are the only players post-merger to average 30+ pts and 7+ assists in a season. AI is the only one who has done it twice, but he averaged the most minutes (43/42, compared to 40/40/38.6 for Jordan, James, and Wade, respectively). Most importantly, AI is the only one who did it shooting under 45% from the field (44.7, 42.4). Jordan, James, and Wade shot 53.8, 48.4, and 49.1, respectively. I don't know much about win shares or pay them much mind, but needless to say, those three rated significantly higher than Iverson in those seasons.

Re: Best Player to Wear #3?

1 Iverson
2 Paul
3 wade

Paul could easily have had an MVP or two already, needs to get to the finals though

AI.

Worse team and people forget how many FTs he took. One of the best at getting to the line.

Re: Best Player to Wear #3?

One more thing, I don't think many people outside of Miami realize Wade had probably played his most impressive basketball with Shaq injured/off the floor/traded. There seems to be the notion that his success was all because of playing with Shaq.

Wade was much more efficient than Iverson.

Marbury, the conversation begins and ends with the answer being Steph.

Re: Best Player to Wear #3?

I wouldn't argue with AI or Wade. I feel like Im prone to pick AI because he was the face of my generation growing up as my love for basketball really developed but Wade has two rings....AI never played with a Shaq or LeBron in his life though.

Not casting a vote at this second.

Re: Best Player to Wear #3?

Would any other NBA player be this excited to be playing in China for the championship? Pure love for the game right here.

Can you not flame our third leading scorer in that finals behind Antoine Walker? Sheesh.
