Rick Barry played during an era in which three-pointers weren’t recorded. Had he played with a three-point line, Barry likely would be the owner of many records from behind the arc. The former University of Miami star was a highly complete offensive player. While Barry’s prowess from the perimeter is universally lauded, he also was excellent as a playmaker. To this day, Barry holds NBA Finals records for the highest scoring average in a Finals series (36.3 PPG) and field goals made in a single Finals game (22).
