The Top Ten

Ray Allen
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
shoots the ball like a slingshot. Doesn't need time to recharge. off-ball movement can kill the defender.
Of course Ray Allen. The 1st on all time when he broke Reggie Miller's record and now approaching 3,000 3 pointers.
[Newest]You guys are dumb Stephen is better the ray are you serious!

2Larry Bird
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
What do you mean that Reggie Miller's better? You are so wrong dude. Larry Bird was awesome.

3Reggie Miller
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!
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.

4Steve Nash
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 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


5Stephen Curry
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.
Stephan curry should number1

6Kobe Bryant
No matter what the list is, I always vote for kobe bryant.
Kobe Bryant? Are you serious? He is not a 3 point shooter

7Peja 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


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.


How is Peja not top 5 on this list?!

8Dirk Nowitzki
Good luck blocking this guy from the 3.


You try defending a 7'0 footer that shoots over his head.
Don't try to guard this guy, he can shoot in the face of 3 defenders.
[Newest]He can shoot the long ones too


9Mike Miller
Great shooter is extremely accurate. Much more then a specialist though. Mike can ball handle pretty well.
okay player, great shooter


He's a amazing shooter.

10Steve 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
Simple best three point % and hits his shots in big moments.

The Contenders

11Jason Kapono

12Manu Ginobili

13Chauncey Billups

14Kyle Korver
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)

15Dale Ellis

16Steve Novak

17Gilbert Arenas
Gilbert is a great shooter and all around player I think he is a top ten quality 3 point shooter. I don't know there are ao many great players in the NBA

18Paul Pierce
2010 3-point contest he a best shooter 2008 champion go celtics


19Glen Rice

20Rashard Lewis

21Dan Majerle

22Damon Jones

23Derek Fisher

24Danny Green

25Jason Terry
Mavericks have all the good shooters


26Daniel Gibson
maybe not yet, but you could tell by the playoffs that he'll be good in the future


27Klay Thompson

28Dell Curry

29Tracy Mcgrady
he might not make it when you want him to, but hes always on time
In clutch times, ya, his biggest problem was injurey.

30Kevin Love

31Quentin Richardson
Most underrated shooter in the game.

32Chuck Person

33Jerry West

34Matt Bonner

35Kevin Durant
No kd at 40 he is the best he should at least be in the top tens

36Mike Bibby
He might not be the best player but he scares other guards when at the 3 point line

37Hedo Turkoglu

38Mark Price
Was a great player shot amazing if he had a foot of room to shoot it in for 3!

39Kyrie Irving
He is dominating the nba now and he has won mvp for this season

40Dwyane Wade

41Joe Johnson
He's better than the 2 in front of you.

42Deron Williams

43Kyle Lowry

44Russell Westbrook

45Trevor Ariza

46LeBron James

47Drazen Petrovic
Drazen Petrovic was and is Europe's best ever player. Very few Europeans would deny that. He regularly scored 40, 50 points per gamein Europe with extremely high percentage for a guard, particularly from 3 point land. In Europe he was known as the basketball Mozart. He is a is a Hall of Famer and it is a pity that NBA fans only saw him blossom for 2 years in NJ. Check out the ESPN film "Once Brothers" on YT.
NBA 1991-92 second highest 3PT field goal percentage (.444)
NBA 1992-93 second highest 3PT field goal percentage (.449)
Reggie Miller said he was the greatest shooter he ever played against. Unfortunately his life was cut short by a car crash.
So sad how he died during his career. Would have been so great.

48Michael Jordan
This is best three point shooters, not best scorers, or players. Jordan was a good three point shooter, but not a great three point shooter.

49Mo Williams

50Carlos Delfino

51Draymond Green
