This sh1t is dumb as hell if you think about it for even a second. Are we supposed to pretend a guy like KD (ski1led as he is) isn't primarily up there with the best scorers of all time because of his physical abilities? It's the fact that he's a 7 foot guy who can just shoot over anyone. Dirk's entire thing was being a big a$s guy who shot near uncontested fadeaway midrange shots because he was hard to block. Jordan is one of the most athletic players of all time and his first step is the reason he was impossible to guard . Iverson is predicated entirely on speed. Almost every "pure" scorer ever had unique physical qualities that made them what they were. Why is Hakeem not a bucket getter? He has arguably the most vast post arsenal in the history of the league and was doing crossovers as a center in the 90s.

What all this really is nothing more than a way to diminish the "dominant guys" as being less ski1led. Point blank.

Think he meant in the league currently. No way he meant throughout the history of the league. He misspoke.

See i thought pure scorers where players who can score from anywhere shooting primarily jumpshots.

I thought jumpshots was the key. Bron not a pure scorer for example even tho he can score from anywhere. His game is not primarily junpshots, hes more of a slasher/bully.

If you cant score 25-30 shooting jumpers consistently then your not a pure scorer.

Pure scorer (a bucket)= I can get a good look regardless of my placement on the court: inside, mid range, outside, off the dribble, catch and shoot, pick and roll, etc.

Scorers= is a guy who is placed in key positions to score. Typically where they run sets to get you the ball in certain areas and play the percentages. Not the deepest bag but they capitalize on placement.

Your earlier thought of pure scorers are the ones who score from anywhere shooting jumpshots are shooters. Curry is a shooter and a pure scorer. What makes him a pure scorer is that he can make adjustment if the defense is guarding him. JJ red1ck and other shooters can't do what curry does. He also has a midrange high arching shot that goes with his handles.

Most of the players he named couldnt do all those things

And the triangle offense had mj and kobe placed in key positions to score

I slapped because of course their size and/or speed gives them an advantage, but they still are ski1led scorers. But for the sake of your argument, if you remove the size and strength of Shaq, would he still be a great scorer, or Giannis for that matter? However, if you removed the height of KD and Dirk, they would still be able to score the ball because of shooting abilities.

How is iversons scoring ability NOT based around athletic prowess ? He was more athletic than everyone else and still low efficiency

Bron got a better 3% than Curry rn. He is a 3 level scorer just like embiid & joker are also 3 level scorers.

Yall live off narratives. There is no difference between "pure" scorers and dominant scorers. Theres just guys who you can stop from scoring and guys you cant stop from scoring.

No KD would not be able to score at the same clip & neither would Dirk. Their game is built on using their height to their advantage. If shaq had smaller hands maybe hed be a better shooter cuz he could actually grip the ball. You cant play the what if game, everyone has the game that they have.

This was a really bad breakdown my guy smh

Look at EVERYTHING KD does and then go back to that 7ft logic you were trying to use it doesnt hold up and the same applies to everyon else you mentioned as well.
