3-and-B (basketball player providing 3-point shooting and blocks)

A “3-and-D” basketball player provides three point shooting accuracy and defense. The term “"3-and-B" refers to a basketball player who provides three point shooting accuracy and blocks. “3-and-B” was coined by Chris Reichert on August 7, 2017.

Jordan Mickey is following the new “3-and-B” archetype
The Celtics simply didn’t have the roster space for Mickey, but his unique skill set should still land him on another NBA roster.

(...)
People covering the NBA — and basketball as a whole — love to create categories of skills for players. There are specialists, like 3-point shooters, shot blockers, on-ball defenders and much more but one of the more popular monikers right now is that of a “3-and-D” player. Just as it sounds these players excel at hitting 3-pointers as well as defending, and these two skills are evolving into a prerequisite for players now, rather than an outlier skill set.
(...)
There’s a new archetype of players rising up and a perfect name for them would be 3-and-B players. These are players who can hit daggers from distance on one end, and erase shots with ease on the other.

Love the term! How about different 3-and-B criteria for guards? For example,150 3’s and 50 blocks - Danny Green is a prime example.
