Cohen 8-Ball: Ranking 2013-14 Best Shooting Guards


#2 Klay Thompson

Cohen’s Analysis: If Stephen Curry is the best 3-point shooter in the league, which statistically is proven; his backcourt teammate may be second best. Thompson’s range is unparalleled and his efficiency is improving. He already has had two games with 30-plus points and three games with a field goal percentage well over 50 percent.

Thompson’s length is also a major factor in his progression. He can shoot over the reach of most of his opponents and often gets hit on the arm on his shot attempts, which is flawless for him considering he is an excellent free throw shooter (better than 80 percent).
