Jordan's 3 pointer was shit for the first few years of his career too.

I find that the 3 shot is overemphasized today, and way too many talented shooters become high-volume chuckers at the 3 point line. It's a smart option for aging superstars who have to find new ways to score - the Paul Pierces of the world - but for young, explosive guards, I'd much prefer they take more 10-15 footers and drives to the basket, draw more fouls and get more respect from the refs.
