Best 3 Point Shooters in the NBA

The Top Ten

1 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.

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

Best shooter by far he has the record for most threes in a season

Stephen curry is the absolute best long distance # 3 point shooter of all time common guys you got to give him some credit he should be number one he is much better than ray Allen in history his handles are great and his range is other worldly insane that is my reason why he should be number one but that's not all is is the number one player of 2016+17 season and who knows if the best team right now the warriors will win the playoffs vs Portland today the probably will because they have got the best big three of today curry,Thompson and what makes it even better is Kevin durant.

Stephen is the best shooter in the game ever since I saw him play I always new that no matter who was in front of him he would still be the best and I look up to him so he better keep it up because I've always wanted to be as good as him

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

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.

ray has the smoothest shot ever to hit the net in the nba, and by far the quickest realese in the nba

3 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

4 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)

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

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.

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"

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

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 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

6 Mike 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.

7 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.

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

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

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

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?!

He should be top 5 no doubt.

9 Kobe Bryant Kobe Bryant (1978 - 2020) was 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 was the all-time leading scorer in Lakers franchise history. ...read more.

Kobe Bryant? Are you serious? He is not a 3 point shooter

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

Really? Kobe is the 6th best shooter of all time, he is a great player but not a shooter.

Why is Kobe even on this list?

10 Kyle Korver Kyle Elliot Korver is an American professional basketball player for the Atlanta Hawks of the National Basketball Association.

Shooting 55% from three currently best in the nba today.. He only gets better with age

There are other players better off the dribble, but Korver is the best spot-up.

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

Kyle Korver is the Best three point shooter straight up

The Contenders

11 Manu Ginobili Emanuel David "Manu" GinĂ³bili is an Argentine professional basketball player for the San Antonio Spurs of the National Basketball Association.

Manu ginobili on the top ten.WOW!

he's beast

12 Jason Kapono
13 Dirk Nowitzki Dirk Werner Nowitzki is a German professional basketball player for the Dallas Mavericks of the National Basketball Association.

Good luck blocking this guy from the 3.

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

14 Chauncey Billups Chauncey Ray Billups is an American retired professional basketball player who played 17 seasons in the National Basketball Association.
15 Paul Pierce Paul Anthony Pierce is an American professional basketball player for the Los Angeles Clippers of the National Basketball Association.

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

16 Dale Ellis

The silent assassin. Nobody better in his days.

17 Glen Rice
18 Klay Thompson Klay Alexander Thompson is an American professional basketball player for the Golden State Warriors of the National Basketball Association.

He Is A Great 3 point Shooter

Should be in top ten!

Dropped 14 3pt in one game don't know why he's down here

14 3s in one game

19 Steve Novak
20 Rashard Lewis
21 Gilbert Arenas Gilbert Jay Arenas Jr. is an American former professional basketball player. Arenas attended Grant High School in the Valley Glen district of Los Angeles, and accepted a scholarship offer to the University of Arizona late in his junior year.

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

22 Kyrie Irving Kyrie Andrew Irving is an American professional basketball player for the Brooklyn Nets of the National Basketball Association. He has played for the Cleveland Cavaliers, Boston Celtics, and the Nets.

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

He should be number one

Better than curry

Better then Kobe

23 Dan Majerle
24 Draymond Green Draymond Jamal Green Sr. is an American professional basketball player for the Golden State Warriors of the National Basketball Association.

Pretty good but where is steve kerr

Wow

25 Kevin Durant Kevin Wayne Durant is an American professional basketball player for the Brooklyn Nets of the National Basketball Association. He has played for the Oklahoma City Thunder, Golden State Warriors, and the Nets. He was MVP of the 2017 and 2018 NBA Finals.

He makes every 3 pointer I see

He should be in the top 5
