Stuck somewhere between the peaks of Magic and Isiah, then Stockton, then Payton, then youngsters Kidd and Nash, was Mark Price. A true sniper with a remarkably soft touch, Price just might be the best shooter of any point guard in the game’s history. He wasn’t just a glorified three-point specialist, though—the dude could create his own shot and pass with the best of ’em, too.

His most successful season came in ’91-92, when he knocked off Boston in Game 7 of the Conferences Semis—sending Larry Bird into retirement—before falling to MJ and the Bulls in a competitive six-game ECF set.

He got the best of the Bulls during the following season, above.
