The Top Ten

1 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)

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

2 Reggie Miller

Everyone knew Reggie was taking the shot and it didn't matter.

BOOM BABY!

3 Stephen Curry Stephen Curry

Come on he's the greatest shooter of all time he does not deserve to be third best shooter

The best shot I've ever seen on the court Stefan Curry is the truth he be remembered as the best shooter in the NBA

7 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 scored 81 points and he outscored the Dallas Mavericks that's all I have to say. - JordanDaniel

I have to say in his beginning of the season yes but in 2015 no he can't shoot

One of the most dangerous scorers of all time

8 Pete Maravich

This guys was a circus entertainer, not a basketball player! He was a amazing! I love how he started form his hip, too

Everybody should look up to him!

Best shooter ever. Period!

Pistol has by far the most variety of shots. PLus he hits the most ridiculous shots I ve ever seen. He probably would average 28-30 per game in NBA if they had 3 pointers

9 Steve Kerr

Still the best % all time. What is your argument?

Are you serious?

Best 3pt threat of all time

10 Drazen Petrovic

If he hadn't died in that car accident he coulda been the best player ever. No exaggerating.

Reggie Miller called him the greatest shooter in nba history. End of conversation!

Easily one of the best talents ever! Who knows how good he could have been?

The most forgotten player of all time.

The Contenders

11 Steve Nash Steve Nash Stephen John Nash, is a Canadian retired professional basketball player who played in the National Basketball Association.
12 Klay Thompson Klay Thompson Klay Alexander Thompson is an American professional basketball player for the Golden State Warriors of the National Basketball Association.

They say he is stephens wing man but with a little more work he could be better than him

13 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.
14 Michael Jordan Michael Jordan Michael 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.

OVERRATED!

15 Lebron James Lebron James LeBron Raymone James is an American professional basketball player for the Cleveland Cavaliers of the National Basketball Association. LeBron has played for the Heat and the Cavaliers.

LeBron is not a shooter he is a dunker and an attacker. - JordanDaniel

16 Tim Hardaway
17 Paul Pierce Paul Pierce Paul Anthony Pierce is an American professional basketball player for the Los Angeles Clippers of the National Basketball Association.
18 Manu Ginobili

The man can score in any way possible.

19 Dirk Nowitzki

Strength+Shooting Ability+Post Game gives him the edge over almost anybody that guards him. This allows him to have the ability to make himself a physical presence anytime he wants to. Pure Scorer is just a word that describes Dirk Nowitzki.

One of the best shooters in the NBA and took on Lebron, Wade, and Bosh in 2011 finals victory

20 Allen Iverson Allen Iverson Allen Ezail Iverson is an American retired professional basketball player who played for 14 seasons in the National Basketball Association.

A.I.'s scoring game is very similar to Kobe Bryant, except he is not as good of a shooter. Plus his phenomenal running layup and floater makes it very tough to stay on him. Definitely one of the hardest Players Ever To Guard.
