So how is it any different...I mean there situations are different, that's just a blanket incoherent statement... Dirk had no midrange game, 8 years later he worked on it and now its one of it not his best attribute. Nash was regarded as frantic, and reckless, and a streaky shooter, many years later, really in his return to phx, he game evolved, and now seen as one of the best pgs of the last decade, and as far as shooting, he went what....about 5/6 years shooting 90/50/40...
Another example tony parker....dude was a horrible mid range shooter, until recent, now he is a respectable midrange shooter. Whats next rondo isn't going to improve? Westbrook has reached his ceiling? Far too many times players have evolved and improved their games later on in the careers. And im not even going to mention Micheal Jordan...who for the first 6 or so years, the opposition prayed he would shoot a midrange shot.
