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]All time leading 3 point

2Reggie 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.

3Larry 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.

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


5Kobe Bryant
No matter what the list is, I always vote for kobe bryant.
3rd the greatest to ever live

6Stephen Curry
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
Because he has hit 900 and over threes

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.

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.

10Jason Kapono

The Contenders

11Manu Ginobili

12Steve Kerr

13Chauncey Billups

14Dale Ellis

15Kyle Korver
Can't argue with hitting a three in 127 straight games (NBA record)

16Gilbert 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

17Glen Rice

18Rashard Lewis

19Dan Majerle

20Steve Novak

21Damon Jones
