To be a great basketball player, one of the qualities you must have is to be a great shooter.
As you can see above, all of these players have one thing in common. They’re all great shooters. Being a good shooter is one of the most important skills in basketball. It doesn’t matter if you’re a guard or a forward; shooting is key.
And being able to consistently make three point shots is even more important. In today’s NBA, the three point shot has become almost essential for every team and every player on the court. Just look at any top teams in the league such as Golden State Warriors or the Cleveland Cavaliers; they all have at least one great three point shooter on their roster (or sometimes two). If a team doesn’t have that, then chances are that team won’t be making it to the playoffs.
On this blog post, I’m going to show you 5 NBA players with the best 3 pt. shooting percentage for this season so far.
There is a lot of great shooters in the NBA but who are the best?
The three pointer is the most important shot in basketball. It requires the most skill to take and make.
In no particular order:
Here is a list of 5 players with great 3 pt. shooting accuracy:
1) Stephen Curry – Golden State Warriors
2) Klay Thompson – Golden State Warriors
3) Kyrie Irving – Boston Celtics
4) J.J. Reddick – Philadelphia 76ers
5) Kyle Korver – Utah Jazz
The Best 3 pt. Shooting Percentage in the NBA
In the NBA, the three point shot has become a major part of most teams offensive strategy. Most teams have one or more players that specialize in shooting from long distance. Depending on their ability to shoot from outside, these players can be essential for their team’s success.
Because of this, I decided to make a blog post about the top ten players with the highest three point field goal percentage in the NBA during the 2014-15 season, which includes all games played before March 23, 2015. This means that stats for some games are not included in these rankings because those games were not played before March 23; however, all of these games will be included in next season’s rankings.
Each season over the past few years, we have seen an increased emphasis on three point shooting. With more teams incorporating the strategy into their offensive schemes, there is more of a need to find players who can shoot from behind the arc at a high percentage.
In fact, three pointers have become so important that there are now players who are solely utilized for their shooting ability. This is especially true in today’s NBA as head coaches rest star players for longer stretches than ever before.
Below is a list of the top 5 NBA players with the best three point shooting percentage in league history. This list considers only those players who attempted 800 or more shots from beyond the arc during their career.
If you are interested in which NBA players have the highest 3 point percentage, this is the blog for you! As a basketball fan, I decided to create this blog because I wanted to see which players made the most of their three pointers last season.
This blog will be updated weekly with the top 5 shooters. It will also show some of their statistics from previous NBA seasons.
I hope this will be useful information that helps you understand how effective some players are at shooting three pointers.
