NBA's Best Shooters

Who ya got?
I think there are 2 types of shooters. Stand still and off the dribble .
There are alot of factors that determine great shooters. Off ball movement is easily the most important.
Heres my top 5 in no order
Steve Novak
Ray Allen
Ryan Anderson
Steph curry
Klay Thompson

Honorable mentions : Carmelo , Korver , Batum and Reddick

well....what kind of

well....what kind of catagory? pure shooter? or high percentage in their range?

Mayo, Ben Gordon, and Kevin Martin come to mind.

Mid-range, I really like Ibaka's improvement. He has become deadly.

also would like to add David Lee

Kevin Martin also makes a

Kevin Martin also makes a living roaming the outside hitting jump shots.. The top shooter off the dribble right now is Durant, hands down IMO...

1. Steph Curry - Has it all and is healthy for a change. hitting 46% from 3p, with 3.1 makes per game.
2. JJ Redick - Infinite range compensates for his lack of size, athleticism, explosiveness, quickness, and being JJ Redick....
3. Kyle Korver - The prototypical spot up shooter. Hitting at 43% 3p, career 41% 3p
4. Steve Novak/Ryan Anderson - Ultimate shooting big men..
5. Ray Allen - At 37 still cannot be left off a Best Shooters list... Still hitting a stellar 43% 3p

Honorable mentions: Kevin Martin, Kevin Durant,

yeah and the funny thing is

yeah and the funny thing is that rather than spraining the ankle in practice or in a game, he sprained it at SHOOTAROUND! I don't understand how that could really work, but that's just sad to say the least that he's been so plagued with injuries and then he re-injures his ankle during the most easy time in the NBA process

Claderon / Ross

Jose has been brilliant this season with his shot - how often have you seen him force up a low percentage shot (even late in the clock? Never.

Shooter of the future: Anyone who has seen Terrence Ross on one of his hot shooting nights has to think this kid will be an absolute sniper in a couple of seasons.

Nash has had a line of 50-40-90 4 times in his career, something that only 5 others have completed ever in a single season, Durant likely to be the 7th. He definetly deserves to be on this list

Just thought I would point

Just thought I would point out that Jimmer is leading the NBA in free throw % and fourth in 3 pt % this year, we might be able to put him up as one of the best in a couple of years, once he figures out his game a little more.
