Part two of the breakdown of best shooters continues with simple catch-and-shoot. This is stationary shooting: darting off screens wasn't heavily considered in making this list. Small relocations and finding pockets laterally along the 3-point line were important, but the main skill in question is shooter's accuracy when their body is already set to the hoop.
Shooting is a mercenary skill in the modern NBA as well as a vital one. Specialists are in demand more than ever, while every role player is asked to develop this aspect of their game. An elite shooter can mean the world for an offense (just ask Duncan Robinson and the Miami Heat). Finding that type of production is rare, though we'll certainly see an uptick in teams trying to find their own version of Duncan Robinson.
