Name one player who came into the NBA with a god awful jump shot form & no outside range whatsoever & developed into a consistent jump shooter with good form.


Richard Jefferson is another that comes to mind

Derrick Rose also qualifies (if you think his jumper is good enough now)

Channing Frye

Luol Deng

Does Shawn Marion count if he could only shoot with the Suns?

And none of those guys are anything more than role players. Andre Drummond has Bynum/Howard potential. He could develop into a superstar.

What!? Jason Kidd is a role player? Derrick Rose, Joe Johnson? Just admit your original point was absurd, then make your case for Drummond. Dont just post a bunch of bullsh!t then try to change the subject when someone calls you out

Derrick Rose is an overrated slasher with a decent mid-range. Jason Kidd is an assist machine who developed an average outside game 12+ years into his career.

Great argument.

So are you finally admitting that players can develop a jump shot in the NBA?

Or are you simply upping the stupidity of your argument by claiming that Derrick Rose and Jason Kidd are role players?

Derrick Rose is NOT a good jump shooter, neither is Jason Kidd.

What exactly does Jason Kidd need to do to prove to you he is a good jump shooter? He hits about 40% of his 3s and he shoots a bunch of them. Back in 09/10 he was 3rd in the NBA in 3 pointers made. He is unquestionably an excellent shooter at this point in his career, and he could not hit a damn thing when he entered the NBA.

Derrick Rose is only a decent jump shooter though, I'll give you that.

Loul Deng. All defender with little shooting abilities. What now, a pretty good outside range shooter. Deng is a comparable player to MKG.

Most of these idiots are hyping "MKG" because they like saying "MKG" and "Kidd-Gilchrist". They'd rather take a chance on someone DEVELOPING A JUMPSHOT instead of someone improving their handle, which is illogical thinking.

Again, the only reason they do, is because they like "MKG/Kidd-Gilchrist's" attitude. They think he's "tough" and "flashy".

He's coooooool.

...SARCASM throughout.


You're the stupidest person on thIs forum, I swear.
Can you please saying the like saying MKG shi+.
If anything, we rather be saying 'ANDRE' Drummond than MKG.
Do you knoe anything about basketball or did you just suddenly pop on here bc you heard we held the no.2 pick . Dumb@ss

Jason Kidd is a 34% career 3-point shooter. The last 2 seasons he averaged 34% & 35%. He had 2 or 3 seasons, out of 17, that he shot well. That's mediocre. MKG won't be blowing by guys in the NBA. Now he'll be playing guys bigger, faster, & stronger than him. They won't let him drive to the hole. They will play off him & let him brick jumpers with his atrocious form & release.

If your argument is to draft MKG because 10 years from now he will have a decent jumpshot I guess you win.

You are blatantly cherry-picking stats, Jason Kidd may have fallen off slightly as a shooter the last couple of seasons (he's 39)but the 2 seasons before that he shot 41% and 42%.

Also, 34% on threes is nowhere near mediocre, especially if you are taking a lot of them. Ray Allen hit 36% one year, is he now a mediocre shooter? Kevin Durant is a 36% career 3 point shooter, is he mediocre at it? Kobe is a 33% shooter, is he mediocre? Melo hits 32%

The greatest shooting big man of all time, Dirk Nowitzki, last 5 seasons from 3 point range:
36%
36
42
39
37
