Jerry West - Jerry West - Jerry West; believe it or not, the NBA started in 1946, not 1980. Jerry West was an assassin who took all the clutch shots . . . and made them long before Stephon Curry or Damian Lillard were a twinkle in their father's eye. Any greatest shooter list without Jerry West is just some young generation X person who disregards history.

Correct, Mr Clutch! Also, Oscar, Hal, Sam, Rick, Elvin, Pistol, Earl, Larry, Etc, Etc, Etc!!! My apologies to some I didn’t list. Also, they all were beaten up by their opponents…research Jerry’s many broken noses. Hal played half his games with a thick pad on his thigh. Then look at Mike(not on his list), who drew a foul if someone breathed on him! These “list makers “ should learn the game!! Sigh….

Downtown Freddy Brown shot my favorite team- the 1978 Denver Nuggets out of the West Finals. Plain and simple. Denver wins that series (I have 3 of the games on tape) if Fred Brown doesn't do what he did in the 4th quarters alone. And degree of difficulty? Freddy's shots- leaning from 24 feet off the board- over and over again...I've never forgiven him I'm convinced the Nuggets win the title in 78 (they would have beaten Washington) if Downtown Freddy Brown missed 3 or 4 more shots.

3 players have made the 50/40/90 club more than once. Larry Bird did it twice, 86-87 & 87-88 and Durant has done it twice in 12-13 and 22-23 (10 years apart!!). Steve Nash did it FOUR times 05-06, 07-08, 08-09 and 2009-10. He missed doing it FIVE years in a row by having this shooting split in 2006/07: .532 FG, .455 3pt, and .899 FT. So he missed Five years in row of 50/40/90 by 1 (maybe 2) missed free throws. Nash is an all-time ELITE shooter. i would have Bird, Nash, Curry, Durant and Reggie Miller or Klay in some order.

Cool video, but do you think the NBA only started in 1980!? I can’t take any top shooter list seriously without the great Jerry West in it. You can’t penalize the guy because he didn’t have a 3pt line. West would completely school your top 5 list. Also no mention of Pistol Pete, Rick Barry, Drazen Petrovic. Come on man, respect the greats that came before cable TV, social media and cell phones. One other guy I’m sure you’ve never heard of because he didn’t play in the NBA, Oscar Schmidt of Brazil. Easily one of the greatest shooters ever.
@dmichael100 2 aylar önce
I am an old school guy (59 years old) have a large collection of games on tape from the 1970s- listen enough with Pistol Pete and Rick Barry on the list of greatest shooters. That is nostalgia clouding our judgement. Maravich and Barry's FG% was way too low- even in the time when they mostly shot mid-range. They were volume shooters but Maravich is remembered fondly because of his unique ball handling and passing skills- great to watch and get the crowd excited but he was a very low percentage shooter. I love old school NBA- I would rather watch games I have from the 70s and 80s than I would a modern game00 but listen, as bad as we hate to admit it- shooters are overall better today-especially from three- because they work on it from grade school on. Steph Curry is the greatest shooter of all time and it is not even close. He is on a different level shooter than West (who was GREAT), Bird, Jordan- anybody. And please- Maravich and Barry may deserve to be on some all-time lists- but shooting is not one of them.

Great list! Where would you place Dirk? I would say Dirk is only slightly behind KD - he has very slightly worse efficiencies from 3, midrange, and FT, and has slightly more cumulative 3pts.
@DetectiveArgument 2 aylar önce
Thank You! Dirk’s definitely top 8. Everything you mentioned in terms of efficiency plus that iconic fadeaway jump shot. He was big time when his team needed him most, shooting 45/46 from the free throw line in the finals in 2011. I’d have him at 6 but I would not be up in arms if someone argued Klay or Bird instead. The arguments for Klay, Bird, and Dirk are all strong cases. I’d say Dirk’s efficiency from the free throw line and mid range put him over Klay because their percentages in terms of made shots when assisted are close to the same. Dirk created his shot more from the low/mid post than Klay does off the dribble. Dirk also took more difficult shots. I’d have Dirk over Bird because of volume, since I do value volume, but also efficiency and longevity. Bird had 4 seasons shooting under 30% from 3 and that was in the early part of his career prior to the back injury. It’s pretty insane that Dirk continued his shooting efficiency after age 35 aside from when he was 40. Even though I don’t have Bird top 6, it should definitely be stated how remarkable it is that he shot as well as he did after getting injured. Also, it’s pretty clear that a lot today’s players took inspiration from Larry Bird’s moves(Stepback and Fadeaway). Today’s shooters would not be as good as they are without Larry Bird.

The issue with Bird is mainly the fact that he had something like 3 great seasons shooting-wise but for some reasons those 3 great seasons are considered as is averages. Like yea, he had 3 pretty good seasons averaging 50 / 40 / 90, but that's just not representative of his whole career. That's like saying Shaq 2000 season when he averaged 30 points and14 rebounds season is representative of his whole career. Bird was not THAT efficient overall, even for his time. We're just talking about his absolute peak when we're talking about him as one of the greatest shooter ever, if we're taking Curry absolute peak too there is just no comparison lol, Curry at his peak is more efficient than basically all of the greatest Centers ever while taking mainly contested jumpshots.

As for Curry, he is a better 3 point shooter than Bird, has better handles, Bird is better at every other aspect of the game that includes 2 point shots.

Yeah, of course the list is going to be populated with current players if one of the bigger criteria's is amount of usage. Considering the 3ball attempts is constantly going up and up ever since the 2000s, you're basically rigging the list to favour the modern NBA player, the more modern, the better. Hell, the NBA even had to shorten the 3point line for a couple of years to ENCOURAGE players to attempt the shot more. The man who invented the 50/40/90 club isn't even in the top 5 shooting? I didn't even hear Jerry West mentioned, one of the best shooters in the 60s. This isn't a list of the top 5 shooters in NBA history. This is a list of top 5 volume 3point shooters of all time.

The greatest midrange/jump shooter in history is without question Jordan. He shot 50% for his career shooting predominantly midrange jumpers from all over the court and even with those last couple of seasons he played into his 40s that obviously hurt that percentage. Had he practiced shooting 3s and implemented them into his game I think he would have been right up there with anybody but he simply didn't see shooting 3s as a viable way to score. MJ's shooting form is the most perfect I've ever seen. It was absolutely textbook.

This is meaningless unless you are comparing each to his era. If you want best of "all time" in nearly any sport the top 5 are all from the current generation and there's are reasons why that's the case. It's not as interesting as looking across eras for the most "revolutionary" athletes. This generation... it's Steph who revolutionized shooting. No other current player can be considered revolutionary as they have not advanced our understanding of the skill for the sport as a whole. Bird is probably 2d given he was the first to introduce the idea of "volume" (3 per game) or using the 3 during the normal course of the game rather than only as a last second desperation shot or only when a team was behind late in the 4th quarter. Bird is also responsible for making the 3 "popular". Guys at your local court started practicing 3s after Bird's 3 pt. contest triumphs that showed how high a percentage was possible. I think Jerry West deserves a spot in the top 5. He was the predecessor to Steph in many ways. In the 60s a guard wasn't supposed to score 30 a game relying on a mid to long range shooting game. Maravich was known to be a revolutionary long range shooter, but he was only able to take a few 3s in I think his final season. His form was levels above nearly every other player of his era. For my 5th and last, perhaps Ray Allen who redefined accurate high volume 3 pt. shooting in the years leading up to the Steph era.

The recency bias of you young folks kills me. You think because a a dude jacks up a lot of shots, it makes him a better shooter. I'll take Bird, Maravich, West, Robertson, etc. over all these cats playing in the wide open era of no defense and 42 three-point attempts per night. Steph would be shut down in the 70's-90's, nobody would have any use for a skinny 6' 3", three point specialist. Same with Durant, just a tall skinny guy would would havr his a$$ knocked around and his shot slapped in a different era. I watched in person, not grainy TRvid videos, the NBA since the 1970's. Bird was the Coldest Dude Ever, that I personally witnessed. I take Bird over Curry in any shooting contest, threes, free-throws, mid-range, what-evs. Little Steph would get his weak stuff rejected against real big men, while the players I mentioned were big and tough (both mentally and physically) enough to still do their thing. Imagine Little Steph against Michael Cooper, when on the rare occasion Cooper allowed him to have the ball, that stuff would get swatted, and Steph would be on the bench. Nowadays, these mentally weak floppers get no physical defense, resulting in wide open shots, and you young guys overestimate their ability as a result. Bird playing today would average 38/14/12 against this weak stuff, and then check out in the 3rd, with a 20 point lead as he felt no need to pad stats against a beaten opponent. For you young-uns who think Bird was just a shooter, he blocked more shots per game then Le-bum, had more steals per game than the "King", was a better shooter, far superior rebounder, and better defender everywhere on the court. Since you all like stats, check out Birds "Defensive Wins Shares" vs. Le-Bum. Bird ranks higher if you want to save time. I'll take the "Chosen One" in a dunk contest however. Whoopee.

You crazy son, Jerry West was the greatest shooter ever. No credit given to Walt Frazier, Rick Barry, or Freddie Brown to mention a few truly great shooters.

Totally ignores players before the three point era. Jerry West , Pete Maravich, Fred Brown, Calvin Murphy, Rick Barry. I could go on, but basketball wasn’t invented in 1980. Elgin Baylor had a 70 point game back in the day and scored over 50 numerous times. Today’s players stand on the shoulders of giants….

Curry is a bad clutch player. Ray Allen and Bird would be more significant both in and out of the 3 point zone. Maybe if they tried to shoot the 3 at will, they may have made a more interesting record but that wasn't the playing style back then. Not to mention that you could bully perimeter shooters unlike today.

Leaving Larry Bird off this list invalidates all opinions you may have on NBA basketball. His only weakness is that he played before volume 3pt shooting became a thing? Ok, then simply say it is a list of the greatest shooters of the 21st century. Remember, Larry Bird grew up in a world where the three point line didn't exist.

Missing criteria, clutch shot when the game is on the line! Having 3 point being part of the criteria automatically lessens older players. Today's NBA plays next to no defense so of course someone like Curry has a higher shooting %. As soon as you said Larry Bird misses the list you automatically tell me you have no idea what you are talking about! Video stopped and did not watch the rest! Pistol should be number one on this list regardless of era!

I'm sorry but I disagree with this list quite a bit. Larry bird is a better shooter than at least 4 of these guys and possibly all of them. 3 pointers made is not a valid look at what makes a shooter great. I would argue jordan should be on this this list too. The clutch value and efficiency that they shot with is off the charts. This just screams unimaginative and bias towards the 3 ball game they play today

I understand your criteria, but Steve Kerr holds the career three point shooting percentage record and that puts him in my top five. Sure he was a role player, but his role was to make three point shots…

I believe James Harden should be on this list. The shot he's made his career on is measurably higher in difficulty than other shot types. He did the, run off screens, catch and shoot, stuff that people associate with shooters during his time at OKC. He shot 39% from 3 doing that.
@younglove3362 2 aylar önce
That's because he travels. It's easier to score when you take 3 to 4 steps and officials don't call it.

He is not good in the midrange and his free throw % is subpar compared to these guys. Also in terms of overall efficiency, he is not efficient and he never had a season of reaching 60%TS

@@kingdinodragonite3470 numbers don't tell the whole story. Steph is the greatest shooter , but if I had to choose between him or klay getting hot for a game I'm taking Klay. I know he's not as good at creating his own shot but what his is good at Trump's everyone else skill set. I think he's 4th on the all time 3 point list shooting 41-2 percent and the only person who has more volume than him is Steph if I'm not mistaken
@@TheGoldKing Dame is 4th all time. In catch and shoot, Dame has a higher percentage than Klay. It's just that Dame takes so many off the dribble threes which hurts his percentage

Before this video even get started I know three of them. Reggie Miller Stephen Curry Klay Thompson. I know them for sure I’m guessing Steve Kerr who knows after that. OK the video is at 47 seconds and I seen Ray Allen’s face so we’ll go with him as well. OK now I’m going to watch the video in it’s entirety

steph is a great shooter but so was other players in an era when they didn't have the freedom to just shot the 3 ball all game long so the greatest in every sport will be an opinion and always just be an opinion
@Herzeder 2 aylar önce
Nah it's not an opinion, it's a fact. Spamming the 3pts shots became a thing because of Stephen Curry; not because of Ray Allen or Larry Bird. Every fucking player in the league is trying to shoot 3 points because of that guy. He got that freedom to shoot because he deserved it, Bird was at best a 40% shooter on low volumes, it's not even comparable. That's why he's the best, he changed the game.
