The best shooter, passer, thinker and player of all time - Grizleybear

I think Stephen Curry is better than Larry Bird. Stephen Curry can shoot better and he is a better passer than Larry Bird - DeadlyClub

Larry bird way better than Michael Jordan

SO much better than curry - Munknjet

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

MJ was different from the rest because most shooters mastered the 3 pointer during his time but, he mastered mid-range which was why he had a higher FG% than most players because sometimes mid-range is the most accurate place to shoot from. Some shooters can't master their mid-range jumper.

Because Michael Jordan is 6 times champion

he's good

He is way better than steph steph just has a three ;point shot

4 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.

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

Better than Curry. Curry just shoots more shots so of course he would have more made threes, so would I if I shot every time.

Okay people. This list is for the greatest " Shooter " of all time. That would start with a man named Walter Ray Allen, then Reggie Miller, then the arguments would start from this point on. Nash, Price, Bird, Pistol Pete...?

Makes so many three point shots its not even funny. Also he has lead the NBA in foul shooting more than once

I vote ray allen #1 but the face that kevin durant is not on this list shows that everyone is a m-o-r-o-n.

6 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.

Reggie Miller all the way. How is Kobe Bryant ahead of him. Any body that voted for Kobe has never seen Reggie shoot that goes for mj too.

8 points in 8.9 seconds enough said

7 Dirk Nowitzki Dirk Werner Nowitzki is a German professional basketball player for the Dallas Mavericks of the National Basketball Association.

Did you ever see a 7'0 shoot threes? There is no doubt that Dirk is the greatest big man shooter of all time. Even though he lack defense he can score not only one, two but THREE!

8 Pete Maravich Peter Press Maravich, known by his nickname Pistol Pete, was an American professional basketball player.

17 Rick Mount

Freak shooter the greatest I've ever seen. Went to his shooting camp in high school and watched him hit 100 free throws in a row. Then he stepped back and hit 30 e pointers in a row. His shop is a mechanical marvel almost like a robot. The whole gym got very quiet very spooky almost supernatural never seen anything like it.
