There were a lot of great shooters from eras gone by who probably watch today’s spread NBA offenses and think “man, I wish I could have played in this era.” Or, maybe more accurately, “man, I really would have gotten PAID if I played in this era.”

Pacers’ president Larry Bird was on the Dan Patrick Show and talked about the best deep shooters the game has ever seen, and where Stephen Curry falls in that discussion. It’s going to be pretty high, even now, but those two throw out some great old names, like Dale Ellis. Of course, Bird puts himself on the list.

What Bird will not do is say he can beat Michael Jordan one-on-one right now.
