The Top Ten

1 Stephen Curry Stephen Curry Wardell Stephen Curry II is an American professional basketball player for the Golden State Warriors of the National Basketball Association. Many players and analysts have called him the greatest shooter in NBA history. He is one of the most beloved, as well as hated, stars in the NBA today.

He is the best!

He is the best shooter in nba history do not hate

Steph will drop a 40 bomb on you. The guy is deadly once he crosses half court. He will shatter you like you are a three point record. I don't care who you are.

Curry is the best that is all to it

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

Second best overall. Best in the clutch.

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.

3 Reggie Miller Reggie Miller Reginald Wayne Miller is an American retired professional basketball player who played his entire 18-year National Basketball Association career with the Indiana Pacers.

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

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!

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

the best, because he was clutch too. Miller Time - Jumpman23BrooklynNYC

4 Larry Bird Larry Bird Larry Joe Bird is an American retired professional basketball player who played for the Boston Celtics of the National Basketball Association. Bird is a 3x champ, 1x ROTY, 1x Finals MVP, 3x 3PT Contest winner, all with the Boston Celtics. (1979-1992)

Best clutch 3 point shooter of all time

He played for only 13 years and he is number 33 one the all time scorers list.

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. "

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

Shooting and passing - nobody could do both well, except him and Magic

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

Number 1

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

6 Mike Miller

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

okay player, great shooter - Achilles

He's a amazing shooter.

7 Steve Kerr Steve Kerr Stephen Douglas Kerr is an American professional basketball coach and former player who is the head coach of the Golden State Warriors of the National Basketball Association.

Steve Kerr is the best spot up jump shooter in the history of the game.

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

8 Peja 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

How is Peja not top 5 on this list?!

He should be top 5 no doubt.

9 Kobe Bryant Kobe Bryant Kobe 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 has won 5 NBA championships with the Lakers and is the all-time leading scorer in Lakers franchise history.

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.

Kobe is one of the best three point shooters of all time.

Why is Kobe even on this list?

Good luck blocking this guy from the 3. - TKDCats312

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.

He can shoot the long ones too - Curti2594

27 Drazen 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.

28 Kevin Durant Kevin Durant Kevin Wayne Durant is an American professional basketball player for the Golden State Warriors of the National Basketball Association. He was MVP of the 2017 NBA Finals.

He makes every 3 pointer I see

He should be in the top 5

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

Beast

29 LeBron James LeBron James LeBron Raymone James is an American professional basketball player for the Los Angeles Lakers of the National Basketball Association. LeBron has played for the Cleveland Cavaliers, Miami Heat, and the Lakers.

Do you guys even watch basketball? LeBron can shoot anywhere. He deserves a number 15 spot on this list, and he is way better than KD at threes.

I know some of y'all are just haters who know nothing about the game but LeBron is a good shooter. I don't get why LeBron and MJ are in the 50s they should be in the top 20

You are such a dumb head who is a baby lebron james is stupid all time and plus James harden is better than you dummy

What lebron can't even shoot

30 Jason Terry

The fact that this guy isn't even in the top ten is absolutely disgusting. He was a key part of the Mavericks championship run in 2011. He was also a contestant for the best three point shooter with Ray Allen that season as well. - fitemeillreku

Mavericks have all the good shooters - Achilles

31 Daniel Gibson

maybe not yet, but you could tell by the playoffs that he'll be good in the future - Achilles

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

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.

Main MJ Should be the first

MJ best player ever no doubt but he wasn't the best 3 pt shooter

33 Damian Lillard Damian Lillard Damian Lamonte Ollie Lillard is an American professional basketball player for the Portland Trail Blazers of the National Basketball Association.

Just to get him above Michael Jordan.

At his very best, when the game is on the line. Under the radar.

He is so nice in for the win in three points

Amazing

34 J.J. Redick J.J. Redick

This guy is a freak from 3 PT range.

35 Quentin Richardson

Most underrated shooter in the game.

36 Jerry West Jerry West Jerry Alan West is an American retired basketball player who played his entire professional career for the Los Angeles Lakers of the National Basketball Association.

He never made one three in his career, stupids - Htown3ball

Probably the greatest long-range shooter of all time, at least until Steph Curry came along.
True that the 3-point shot did not exist during his career, but he still has one of the highest lifetime scoring averages ever without it.
His 64-foot buzzer beater in the 1970 NBA finals only forced overtime [they lost in OT], but in the 3-point era, the Lakers would have won the championship.
There's a reason he is "the logo".

37 Carlos Delfino
38 Russell Westbrook Russell Westbrook Russell Westbrook Jr. is an American professional basketball player for the Oklahoma City Thunder of the National Basketball Association.
39 Carmelo Anthony Carmelo Anthony Carmelo Kyam Anthony is an American professional basketball player for the Houston Rockets of the National Basketball Association.

How come he is in 19? he should be no.2!

This dude is without the best 3 point shooter of all time. Screw Stephen Curry, since Carmelo Anthony is way better than Curry will ever be honestly. peace bitch
