Shawn is statistically pretty equal to Bridges and Oubre as a shooter.
Tyrese Haliburton • Killian Hayes • Aaron Nesmith • Tyrell Terry • Patrick Williams • RJ Hampton • Tyrese Maxey • Alexsej Pokusevski

Marion was one of my absolute locks
He was #2 for me. Nash was obviously #1.

Bubble Bridges shot 43% from 3. If he becomes a 38-40% 3pt shooter, watch out.

By that reasoning you should take Payne, who shot 52% from 3 and played great defense for eight games.

If we’re taking role players, how about Frye?

I loved how Grant Napier, the Kings' play by play guy kept asking if it was rubbing it in and if the Kings would remember it and pay us back.

Nope.

Stoudemire

Barkley

Marion

Booker

KJ

Notes: This is assuming each is in his physical prime. Forward tandem of Charles and Matrix presents many problems to opponents. I choose KJ over Nash as Kevin was better all-around player, i.e. he played defense. Nash had an edge as a facilitator, but with Booker alongside, that edge is mitigated. Stoudemire before knee surgeries was a force of nature (I always preferred Q Richardson's nickname for Amare: Hellboy). Eightman rotation would include Nash, Walter Davis and Larry Nance.
Once upon a time, in what seems an epoch ago, the Phoenix Suns were a respectable NBA franchise ...

I think Booker has him beat! And Westy was my favorite growing up so I don't say that lightly. I guess then it comes down to Westy versus Davis on the bench.
