    I can't think of anyone at the moment to argue for, but I am sure the answer to your question is no.

    At first glance, it seems insane to say that Okur is the best anything. But...he was DEADLY as a stretch 5. He destroyed the Rockets as a 7 footer who could knock down the 3. The tough thing about a guy like Okur is that he was tough inside and a good post defender and rebounder as well. So he could stay on the court, as he wasn't one dimensional. I believe he even made an all-star team. I am not sure he was the best, but for what he was, few did it better.

    LOL at Bol. He actually caught fire one random night. But still, no


    Not sure I would rate Sikma up there considering he didn't start bombing away till he was out of his prime. Memo was an actual ALL-STAR while bombing away.

    you dont have to be an allstar to be one of the best or the best at something.


    I mean, if you ask bout top notch 3 p shooters everybody will point at the birds, millers , houstons or allens.

    But you know, this dudes like hodges, kerr, ellis not really good for much else may have been equal or better at it.

    Sikma had both thing, was a hell of an strecher and an alltime great ( that i miss by the way)

    I didn't think of it that way. Not sure what to say, what your saying could technically be true, I was just focusing on the best player to fill that position (Stretch-5).

    I guess it depends on whether you feel the question is asking whos the best 3pt shooting center or whos the best center that happens to shoot alot of 3's.


    Like if we did this for stretch-4's, I think Novak is the best stretch-4 in terms of just shooting, but in terms of a total package from a stretch 4 hes not even close.

    Sabonis was better.

    And Bargnani will be the best by far - maybe already is.
