Chauncey and Nash if were talking PG dribble pull ups in transition. Pierce, Dirk and Novak (hits about 90% of his 3s this way) for trailing 3s in transition.

06-04-2012, 12:53 AM
If we're talking about dribbling and pulling up it's Billups by a mile, then Nash. In transition however, Dirk, Durant and Melo seem to hit every time.

I won't mention the obvious Ray Allen...oops, I mentioned him

Don't need to. Not even sure why he was included at all, he isn't a three point shooter. Never has been.

Kobe is a poor three point shooter. That is a fact.

Not even sure what the second sentence means, nor do I care.

Dam Hawkeye you should know that if you don't acknowledge that Kobe is the greatest in everything you're hating......... He's the best Defender, Shooter, Passer, post-up player, leader, clutch player and so on.


Kobe is not a good 3PT shooter no matter if it's transition or halfcourt, he may take a good amount of walk up 3PT but that doesn't mean he's good at it.

I think this is a case of reputation in comparison to reality. Personally, I would've guessed Steph Curry is the best. He's an incredible shooter.

I decided to look up the 3 point shooting numbers on Synergy to help put this argument to rest. I looked up everyone who was mentioned in this thread, then I looked up players I suspected were good 3 point shooters in transition, the results are below.

There could be players that are better, but you can't simply look at everyone's numbers at once in Synergy. Synergy seriously needs to improve their interface. If anyone knows how to do that, msg me.

Tmac used to be great at it.
Nash is very good at it.
Kevin Martin is surprisingly good at it.
Off the top of my head of all time i'd nominate Reggie Miller.

Right now KD.
