Deadliest Offensive Weapons in NBA History

Shaquille O'neal's Drop Step:

Arguably the most physically unstoppable move of all-time. Impossible to guard 1 on 1, and so dominant that the other team fouled him half-way through the move to prevent a guaranteed basket. It was also so dominant that the league had to legalize zone defense to contain him.

Michael Jordan's Fadeaway:

The original master of the fadeaway, a lethal post move used by the best post-up guard to ever play the game. This move was so aesthetically pleasing, graceful, and reliable, that many other great players have tried to replicate it.

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar's Skyhook:

Magic calls it the "the most beautiful shot in basketball." Another seemingly unblockable shot patended by one of the best centers to ever play. Unfortunately, no big men seem to have the courage or the ability to continue this shot in today's game.

Kobe Bryant's Jumpshot:

It's the ability to rise up and shoot over any defender, any contest, anywhere past halfcourt. It is the same jumpshot that has netted Kobe so many scoring binges and historic records. The deadliest jumpshot of all time.

There is a difference between a deadly catch and shoot player like Reggie and a deadly jumpshooter like Kobe who can create his own shot about 50x better than Miller.
