So I was messing around on rotomonster.com, looking for guys that provided the best combo of 3's/steals/blocks, the elusive 1/1/1. Some people say it's an overrated combo, but D + 3 guys are common in the NBA (guys that play hard D & shoot mostly spot up 3's on offense, think Shane Battier or Doug Christie or Dorell Wright or Thabo Sefolosha or many others and I think it's a really useful thing to look for, since these guys usually contribute elsewhere as well except for Battier lol.

Anyway, I was looking back in the archives and in 1995-96, look at this unique season Horry had:
Robert Horry: 12.0ppg, 2.0threes, 5.8rpg, 4.0apg, 1.6spg, 1.6bpg, 1.9to; 44.7%FG/76.1%FT
That was only good for 27th overall that year! To put it in perspective, Batum was 19th overall with:
Nicolas Batum: 14.3ppg, 2.2threes, 5.6rpg, 4.9apg, 1.2spg, 1.1bpg, 2.6to; 42.3%FG/84.8%FT

It got me thinking though, Horry put up a 2.0three/1.6spg/1.6bpg which I can't think of anyone else doing. I checked it out on basketball reference, giving the benefit of the doubt for rounding, and he's the only guy whose ever done 1.95/1.45/1.45 even. The only guy who even did 2/1/1 that I could think of last year was Batum with what I posted above. Durant did 2.0/1.3/1.2 in 2011-12 and 1.7/1.4/1.3 in 2012-13, Granger did 2.7!/1.0/1.5 in 08-09 and 2.6/1.5/0.8 in 09-10 but never got the combo right in the same season.

Can anyone else think of anyone else who came close? What about other stuff like that, besides the 50FG/40THR/90FT and the 2/1.5/1.5?
How'd you get the beans above the frank!?

Pippen was the first person that came to mind, but his closest to this was 1.4, 2.9, 1.1.
When his three's hit 1.9, his blocks came down to under 1.

Same thing happened to T-Mac. Threes went up, blocks went down.

Jerry West could have met this criteria, but blocks weren't recorded bar one season, and the 3 point line didn't exist.

Wow. If he were active and in his prime, where do you think he would he be drafted coming off that kind of season?

Batum would be a pretty solid measuring stick. He doesn't get as many stocks but he can provide more points, assists, and FT% to narrow the difference.
