      Johnson was a great player and shooter, and while he was a good 3 point shooter he retired with a 33% mark and hit only 562 threes which puts him 148th all time. A good player none the less, but not a top ten guy.

    Ummm … Steve Kerr

      Kerr was an incredible shooter for sure, he was a key player off the bench for the Bulls during there second 3 peat run. Kerr did shoot an impressive 45% behind the arc which is the best in NBA history and if he was hard not to include on the list. He made 726 3's which is good for 106th all time and truthfully he could have been the number 10 guy on the list, but he was more of a spot up shooter than a take control of a game shooter. Definitly the number 11 guy if the list continued.

    Hard to argue w/any of these choices. Very good list. One guy that you could make a case for putting on this list would be Mitch Ritchmond. If not top 10, he would have to be 11 right? A couple years ago I thought Michael Redd would be a shoo-in for this list, but he has really faded. Eventually we might be talking about Kevin Durant, Rashard Lewis and/or Danny Granger for this list

    Good that Dale Ellis has some love on this list. He is one of the forgotten sharpshooters.

    Speaking of greats, Kevin Durant is becoming a ridonkulously good shooter. He's learning how to dominate a game offensively. If 35 masters that, he'll be scary good.

    Going by regular season statistics, Robert Horry doesn't qualify, but as a clutch playoff 3-point shooter, "Big Shot Rob" is surely top 5.

    Great list, if it's top 15 I expected to see some names up there, mark price, mitch richmond, steve kerr,

    If you had a clutch 3 point shooter, reggie still be no.1 robert horry is 2nd. Eventhou I'm not a celtic fan

    I think ray allen should be no.1 cause he completed it with a ring

    I like your picks but I would have put Larry Bird at the top.

    I like the picks, but I would still have Steve Kerr on the top 5. He shot better than 50% for 5 of his 15 seasons. The other seasons were not much under 50%. What made him different is he could hit it just as well covered.

    And how about Kyle Korver???????? He just beat Steve Kerr's single season record for 3p% in a season with a stunning 54%. Given he only took 110.

    And If your list had a most underrated 3 point shooter: BEN GORDON. That guy can hit from all sorts of range, and off balance.

    I agree with Miller but you left out John Stark. He was the first player in NBA history to make 200 three-pointers in one season

    Larry Bird should not be on this list. it's not that he wasn't a great shooter he was one of the best, but he's 122nd on the all-time threes made list and he only shot 37% there are a lot of people who shot higher percentages and hit more three's actually there are 121 people who hit more three's including Steve Kerr, Paul Pierce, Michael Finley, Brent Barry, Mike Bibby+++

    I just think that Peja deserves to be a bit higher. I agree with Reggie and Allen at first two spots. Cheers!

    I think you guys are forgetting one hidden gem. I firmly believe that Petro (Drazen Petrovic) would have been one of the best, rivaling Ray and Reggie easily (or being just after them) if he hadn’t died prematurely. 45% in every season except for the one when Portland didn’t let him play and he had to go to New Jersey in mid season .

    Being European and in NBA back in those days was hard and I think Drazen should receive a recognition that he truly deserves as one of the all time greatest 3p shooters.

    One more thing.. All though great, Peja wouldn’t stand a chance against this guy and should really thank Drazen for giving him a chance to be on the floor and shoot.

    RIP Drazen.

    as to keep you guys updated.. RAY ALLEN surpasses Reggie Miller in all time NBA records in number of three points made last Feb 10,2010 (a game against the lakers). Record-wise Ray tops Reggie, but the question of who’s more deadly on the arc in their prime years is debatable. Miller got 2,560 in 18 season while Allen got 2,610 in just 16.. and still going.

    Go back to school Kenneth… (and those that count best shooters only by the amount of shots…)
    Reggie Miller says that Drazen Petrovic is the best shooter that he had ever seen (and better than Ray Allen). If no.2 in the history says that, and no.1 on this list then it should not be taken lightly…

    How is it that Drazen Petrovic is not even on the list. Even Miller admitted he was the best shooter he ever saw. He used to score 40,50,60 points per game in Europe and averaged 21 points per game from 37 minutes on the floor in the NBA with an almost 45% 3 point and 52% average from the field in the 92 season (2nd in the league that year in both categories). This was only his second year of getting court time in the NBA. He is often remembered as the one who lead the way for the European players to get accepted and perhaps thats why he was given the HOF. But in reality very few people would deny he is the greatest European player that ever played.
