Legends for Atlanta Hawks shooting guard Bogdan Bogdanovic to study) Reggie Miller

Reggie Miller was a Hall of Fame player who made a career for himself as a shooter. He was the leader of the team and therefore was able to choose his shots more than Bogdanovic, As such, Miller remains to this day one of the best shooters to ever play the game.

However, it was not just his 3-point shooting ability that set Miller apart from his competition, he was also a tremendous free throw shooter, leading the lead five times over his career in free throw shooting percentage.

This means that he also led the NBA in true shooting percentage twice and has the 11th best ever career in true shooting percentage. These are rankings that any shooting guard in the NBA should aspire to achieve. Unfortunately for Miller, none of these numbers ever resulted in a championship.

However, Miller was the ultimate floor spacer, a solid defender, and was able to change the game in seconds with his shooting. If Bogdanovic can continue to develop his shooting game so that he can help others change the game in the Hawks favor as well due to his floor spacing.
