Love the Glen Rice love. I remember being memorized by his stroke when I was little watching him on NBA on NBC, lying on the floor 3 inches from the screen. I don't know why, but his stroke was so perfect, I wont ever forget it.

Glen Rice or Dale Ellis...

Their height made it difficult to defend..and it was a mechanical stroke...when they missed it wasn't by much...Prolific scorers as well...

I know what made it just so "pure"-looking. He had that stroke, to go along with those elbow pads, those heavy looking knee pads, and those bulky shoes that he wore. Just made it so perfect to watch. Indeed the greatest 3-pt shot release in NBA History!

My favorite shooter of alltime, although more of a jump shooter than 3 point shooter, has to be H20. Alllan houston had the sweetest stroke.

This was last year, but 10 years ago he had insane elevation on his jumper

Bill Walton talked about one of Pete Maravich's books and it said Maravich averaged thirteen three pointers a game.Of course, we don't know how much he would have averaged in his prime if the three point line was there, but it's very impressive regardless.

I used to love watching Mitch Richmond shoot the ball, he had a nice stroke. He's definitely one of the most underrated players the last 15-20 years or so.

best players with a deadly 3pt shot

larry bird
ray allen
reggie miller
glen rice

mitch richmond (y'all forgot about him, 200+3pts in back to back seasons, 20+pts almost 11 straight seasons.)

dirk nowitzki
Peja Stojakovic
allan houston
tim hardaway (forgot about him too)
mark price
steve nash
and if they had 3s back then (jerry west)
i know i'm leaving out a few players.

oh and as weird as this might sound..."Kobe Bryant", the last 6 out of 7yrs he's been well over 100 3s for the season even had 150 3s in 1 season & 180 3s in another. he is tied for the record which he orginally set with 12 3s in 1gm and is super clutch behind the arc and is probably the best player at getting the 3pt shot off cuz of his athletism and his ball fakes. i seen him hit the deepest 3s and very off balanced turn around fade away 3s, especially against POR.

for specialist players
jeff hornacek
steve kerr
dell curry
dennis scott (267 3pt'ers in the '95 season)
fisher
horry
paxson, hodges, chuck and wesley person

1) Glen Rice
2) Reggie Miller
3) Ray Allen
4) Dale Ellis
5) Larry Bird
6) Dell Curry

If we are talking about form, then Bird and Miller are off the list. Bird brought the ball back behind his head, and Miller's elbow flared way out.
Its Glen Rice. His body was aligned, feet squared, perfect 90 degree angle on his elbow, release at high point of his jump, great follow thru. Ray would be the best, but there is the slightest hitch when he brings it up.
Ellis and Curry were great shooters, Ellis more of a set shot, Curry was a curler, and had his feet messed up occasionally.
Steve Kerr had a great looking shot as well.

Chris Jackson was his name man. Same dude. I also don't dig the fact that he refused to stand during the star spangled banner in opposition of the US, when he made millions living here.
Great shooter though

Bird- shot went back behind his head before release, not right
Miller- left elbow flared all the way out

these two actually have bad form, right up to the release

I can't believe I only heard Jeff Hornacek's name only once. That blows me away. He is easily in the top ten. I would put him into the top 5. If your talking scorers who mainly shot from the outside than that is a different story. But he had a sweet stroke and perfect form. And was deadly accurate.

Almost 50% for his career from the field. Mainly shot from the outside shot.
Over 40 percent for his career from the 3.

During his prime year with the Jazz he shot over 50 percent from the field and 46% from the 3 point line. That is hard to do.

Glen Rice had a lot of years shooting under 40 percent. And never really shot round 50 from the field. But did have a good form

Reggie Miller was a better scorer than a shooter. Overrated in my book. He just hit big shots at the end of games so he is over hyped. had better percentages than Rice but not as good as Horny. Miller also had a horrible from. He crossed his arms when he shot. Look liked he was shooting with two hands. And I am not sure he wasn't.

Ray Allen shot about the same as Glen Rice. not as good as Miller or Hornacek. But does have a sweet stroke. Very quick release with good form. But not much of an arc on his shot. I think that is why he is so streaky.

Dale Ellis was similar to Reggie Miller in percentages. He had a good form also. Better form than Miller for sure.

Larry Bird was more of a mid-range shooter than a 3 point shooter. Amazing form and soft touch. he made outside shots look like layups. But he was smart and shot the mid range shot more than the 3. The great players always do. Still a good 3 point shooter but with percentages he wasn't as good as the others.

Dell Curry was an underrated shooter but overall wasn't the highest percentage like some of the others. But shot great from the 3 point land. Great form too.

My vote is Hornacek. His shot is what each kid should model there shot after. Great arc on his shot. Perfect form. And the percentages speak for themselves.

He was not even a 3 point shooter (3 point line didn't exist)...but Pisto Pete Maravich had, I think, the real best stroke the nba ever seen!
