Top 10 Best 3 Point Shooters in NBA History
Absolutely god-given skills with his incredible jump shot combined with his incredible range and incredible ball handles. People under appreciate Steph even though he is having a campaign similar, if not better to his 2015 MVP and championship season. People love to hate on this guy only because Kevin Durant joined the Warriors. Steph has one of the hardest workers in the entire league, and has broken countless records related to three pointers. People love the fact to point out that Ray Allen has the most career three pointers and has made one of the clutchest shots of all time in the NBA Finals, but you already know it's just a matter of time for Curry to pass Ray Allen for most career three pointers in regular season and playoffs. Stephen Curry also has led the league in three pointers five times in a row, surpassing Ray Allen's best shooting season according to three pointers made 4 times while Ray Allen led the league in three pointers 3 times in his 18 year career and Reggie ...more
Really, #2? How can this guy not be 1st? He made a corner three with his eyes closed with two peple guarding him. This guy knocks down half-courts like they're nothing. He beat Ray Allen's single season three-point record, his all-time record is next. Because of him they beat Michael Jordan's Chicago Bulls' winning record, and now they have KD. They just might become the best NBA team EVER. A long journey lies ahead!
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!
Honestly people are just so afraid of change. Steph Curry is the greatest shooter of all time. If you are still denying it, then you are deluding yourselves. Reggie Miller and Ray Allen were amazing but it's time to move on. Just accept that there is now someone better!
Stop saying curry is better than Ray, steps just broke the most 3 made in a season, that doesn't make him better than Ray. Plus there's a reason why Ray's better than Steph, it's because Ray lasted throughout his whole career, and Steph didn't even reach 10 years of NBA career, all the more you can't compare them. If Steph still shoots threes after 13 or more years of NBA career than his better but now Ray's still the best 3 point shooter ever.
My top 10 would be
1. Ray Allen
2. Reggie Miller
3. Steph Curry in the future he will be the best just give him 5 years
4. Drazen Petrovic RIP
5. Glen Rice
9. Kobe in clutch time
10. Dana Barros
Larry Bird don't even got form
Of course Ray Allen. The 1st on all time when he broke Reggie Miller's record and now approaching 3,000 3 pointers.
Ray Allen is also good eye shooter but not as good
As Stephen curry.
How the heck is Reggie third he's the best shooter ever Ray Allen better be reading this. Reggie Miller all day.
Honestly if I had to choose between Reggie & Ray which ARE the 2 best of all time, I'd chose Reggie both for 3s & clutch.
I can't stand the guy personally, but he is a heckuva 3 point shooter.
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
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"
He is atheist best 3pointer of all time period and if he was up against all these guys when he was younger he would have beaten all of them he can't do it now because he has a back injury.
Larry is my pick for number one.He played when basketball was much more physical. I pick Curry second I believe Curry is a better 3 pt.shooter in today's game. I just don't believe he could have done what he's doing now in the Bird's era.
Steve Nash was so good passer that his shooting abilities was underrated.
Shooting and passing - nobody could do both well, except him and Magic
Steve is way better than Kobe and Allen put together this coming from a Celtics fan
Great shooter is extremely accurate. Much more then a specialist though. Mike can ball handle pretty well.
He's a amazing shooter.
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.
Steve Kerr is the best spot up jump shooter in the history of the game.
Highest 3 point percentage of all time at over 45%!. Clutch late in the game.
Simple best three point % and hits his shots in big moments.
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 don't 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?!
He should be top 5 no doubt.
Record 12 threes. Has had many games where he's shot 50+% from 3 to get high scores. All his 50+ pt games he goes off from behind the arc.
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.
Really? Kobe is the 6th best shooter of all time, he is a great player but not a shooter.
Kobe is one of the best three point shooters of all time.
There are other players better off the dribble, but Korver is the best spot-up.
Shooting 55% from three currently best in the nba today.. He only gets better with age
Make him be 1st please
But lets go celtics
Don't try to guard this guy, he can shoot in the face of 3 defenders.
You try defending a 7'0 footer that shoots over his head.
Good luck blocking this guy from the 3.
The silent assassin. Nobody better in his days.
Should be in top ten!
He should be number one
Better than curry
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
At his very best, when the game is on the line. Under the radar.
Just to get him above Michael Jordan.
Jordan is above him?
