The Top TenXW

1Larry BirdLarry Joe Bird is an American retired professional basketball player who played for the Boston Celtics of the National Basketball Association.

You just can't argue this fact. He had no athleticism, yet he scored at will. Oh, and he won 3, 3-point contests, consecutively. Even though he would rather pass the ball, if his team needed him to do so, he could put up 60 points

Now he would be average and Reggie miller, Steph Curry, and Ray Allen are all better shooters

The man can score in any way possible.

18Michael JordanMichael Jeffrey Jordan, also known by his initials, MJ, is an American retired professional basketball player.

It is without a doubt, no ifs ands or buts, inevitable that I am going to get A LOT of criticism and controversy for this one. I don't blame you either, why would you not defend the Greatest Player To Ever Play. While I do agree that Overall, Jordan is the greatest Ever, I believe there are players that have a better Pure Scoring Ability. Hence, the 5 players above him.

This guy is one of the only players in NBA History who you can say, is incredible at playing small ball and big ball, in terms of the way he scores. He Is a bull in the post, plus, can shoot and has handles. What is not to like about Carmelo Anthonys Scoring Game?

20Dell Curry

He could shoot. Amazing. Speechless
