Best 3 Point Shooters in the NBA


The Top TenXW

1Ray AllenWalter Ray Allen, Jr. is a former American professional basketball player who is currently a free agent.

ray allen should be ahead of everyone #1 because he's about to past reggie miller for most three pointers made, #2also because back then when larry bird played the three point line was closer to the basket

Of course Ray Allen. The 1st on all time when he broke Reggie Miller's record and now approaching 3,000 3 pointers.

shoots the ball like a slingshot. Doesn't need time to recharge. off-ball movement can kill the defender.

Best three point shooter period

2Reggie Miller

Is a legend when it comes to threes r=the reason he got in the hall of fame is because his threes I know he lost his title to ray ray but he still the best in book

How the heck is Reggie third he's the best shooter ever Ray Allen better be reading this. Reggie Miller all day.

YO Reggie Miller UNDER Larry Bird that's just plain out stupid! Only Ray Allen is better than Reggie Miller that's it! NOT NO DUMB LITTLE OVERRATED LARRY BIRD!

The best overall three point shooter ever

3Stephen CurryWardell Stephen "Steph" Curry II is an American professional basketball player for the Golden State Warriors of the National Basketball Association.

Are you serious?! Stephen should be ahead of Ray Allen have you seen this record breaker and you got Kobe ahead of guys like Steve Kerr and sell curry! You obviously don't understand basketball! And Reggie is better then Allen. Allen may be clutch but Reggie is WAY BETTER and Kerr should crack top 10!

Stephen has already broken Allen's record and he isn't even 30 yet. That saying, he has way more juice in his body that hasn't even been unleashed.

He already hit is 1000th 3 Pointer, broke his own record for most 3 pointers in a single season and he's only 27! He should be number 1.

What Curry better than a Ray Allen At least Number 2

4Larry BirdLarry Joe Bird is an American retired professional basketball player who played for the Boston Celtics of the National Basketball Association.

Miller better than bird? Are you you out of your mind? Big deal he made more 3's, in much more time and many more games and attempts. miller more clutch than bird? I never saw bird have the worst game of his career in a big playoff game. aka reggie going 3 for 18 with the season on the line. bird guaranteed victories. bird backed it up. larry legend would smoke reggie. reggie also had to kick out his leg to get someone to bump him for foul calls. yes that's true also. watch it. he always kicked defenders when he released the shot then got to go the free throw line for some bull. bird was the best clutch player of all time

the one, the only.

"Larry, you only told me one lie. You said there will be another Larry Bird. Larry, there will never, ever be another Larry Bird. "
--Magic Johnson

Bird jumpshot was like honey. He'd shoot the ball above his head and it almost always went in. The 3 point contest was an example of his swagger when it comes to shooting from deep. The 3 point shootout should be renamed "The Larry Bird 3 Point Contest"

What do you mean that Reggie Miller's better? You are so wrong dude. Larry Bird was awesome.

5Steve NashStephen John Nash, is a Canadian retired professional basketball player who played in the National Basketball Association.

Best pure shooter of all time ray allen couldn't break ankles like steve nash and shoot 15 fadeaways in his face come on now if nash is set he's gonna make he's been part of the 40 50 90 club 6 times

Steve Nash was so good passer that his shooting abilities was underrated. - caqatay20

Steve is way better than Kobe and Allen put together this coming from a Celtics fan

Passes a lot, but you can count on him when he shoots - Achilles

6Kobe BryantKobe Bean Bryant is an American retired professional basketball player. He played his entire 20-year career with the Los Angeles Lakers of the National Basketball Association.

Kobe Bryant? Are you serious? He is not a 3 point shooter

Really? Kobe is the 6th best shooter of all time, he is a great player but not a shooter.

Statistic wise Kobe Bryant is not all too great for 3's but his 3's are way more impressive than any other on thislist especially clutch 3's.

Why is Kobe even on this list?

7Mike Miller

Great shooter is extremely accurate. Much more then a specialist though. Mike can ball handle pretty well.

8Peja Stojakovic

This is real funny right here. Having Peja not even in the top 10 when we are talking about SHOOTER. There is no way guys like Terry, Arenas, Nash, Kobe are better shooters than Peja. The only guys that can contest Peja really is Allen and Redd for the most part - ColdJ3

Other than Allen and Redd I dont think anyone on this list should be ahead of Peja as a shooter.This is shooters not all around players so it might be Peja. - Chris-1

That's what he does. The only things he does. Pure three point shooter... a specialist.

9Steve Kerr

Best three point percentage of all time, very clutch, add the 4 championship teams. Ya, I think he needs to be in the top three 3-point shooters.

Kerr should be at least 5th on this list, I think even reggie miller and ray allen would agree with me

Should be ahead of Larry Bird compare the percentage Larry bird should not be so high

Best 3 point shooter for Bulls!

15Kyle KorverKyle Elliot Korver is an American professional basketball player for the Atlanta Hawks of the National Basketball Association.

Shooting 55% from three currently best in the nba today.. He only gets better with age

Can't argue with hitting a three in 127 straight games (NBA record)

Pretty good on threes should be higher on the list

But lets go celtics
