    Was Okur the greatest Stretch-5 in History?

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

    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.

    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.

    Sabonis was better.

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

    Bol was sick that night, I'll never forget it becasue it was so mind boggling.

    Sonics went to the finals in '96 with a great "stretch 5" in Sam Perkins. Getting that far in the playoffs counts for something IMO even if he was the 4th option most nights (Kemp, Payton, Detlef).

    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'd say he was. Okur seems to get forgotten quite often when talking about three point shooters of the mid 2000's. He was an insane shooter, and was a main cog of those Deron Williams-led Jazz.

    I think it's a fair assessment to give Okur that title.

    Andrew Luck, Robert Griffin III, and Colin Kaepernick walk into a bar... To watch Russell Wilson win the Super Bowl.

    Yeah Bargnani is the best -- at eating pasta. Okur is/was way better than him, and Okur could rebound too.
