Having “skill” as only a single catch all category while having four different categories for “are you tall and athletic?” doesn’t seem like the best way to do this.

Midrange Shooting:  Larry Bird

Length:  Giannis

Strength and Athleticism:  Lebron 

Post game and footwork:  Hakeem

Agreed, I wavered between Kyrie and Steph for that reason but I just copied the list as it was from Twitter.   I probably should have gone with Steph cause he is MUCH shooter than Kyrie while the difference in ball  handling and finishing around the basket is not quite as large.
