Not really many different ways you can go. those are all pretty much the best shooters at their respective positions.

Afflalo over Durant? Why not move Korver to SG?

because this a thing about shooting,who's better from distance,not who's a better player.aa has higher % from distance last year and for career

cuz it doesnt matter, he can play either

I also question Bargnani being included. Spencer Hawes has better career shooting percentages. Bargnani only shoots 35.5% from distance. He is a shooter who doesn't shoot very well.

Curry, Paul, Mills
D.Green, Thompson, Korver
Lebron, Durant, Carmelo
Dirk, Kevin Love, West
Bosh, Ibaka, Frye

Are you looking for the 15 best shooters or the best team of 15 players who can shoot?

I'm going to mix it up, historic and current.

G: Stephen Curry/Steve Nash/Calvin Murphy
G: Ray Allen/Reggie Miller/Drazen Petrovic(RIP)
F: Chris Mullin/Kevin Durant/Alex English
F: Dirk Nowitzki/Kevin Love/Sam Perkins
C: Arvydas Sabonis?/Brad Miller


Tried to get proper centers, it was difficult, really having to rack my brain, is there a C better suited?


HM: Kyle Korver.

I don't really see Lebron in a Top Shooter List.

PG: Stephen Curry, Josť Calderon, Damian Lillard
SG: Kyle Korver, Klay Thompson, JJ Reddick
SF: Kevin Durant, Carmelo Anthony, Mike Miller
PF: Dirk Nowitzki, Kevin Love, Ryan Anderson
C: Chris Bosh, Channing Frye, Andrea Bargnani

I'm basing this mostly on 3pt shooting, which is what I think of when seeing the word "shooter", although I recognize that some good 3pt shooters were not necessarily good "shooters" in general (a.k.a. Bruce Bowen).

Peja Stojakovic
Damon Jones
Mark Price
Steve Kerr
Dan Majerle

There is also this one guy named Larry Bird who could shoot a little bit

As a Raptor fan I can assure you it is a reputation that he wholeheartedly deserves. Especially over the last 3 seasons.

Yeah I agree totally. No disrespect to him. He should be presumed on the list of everyone who leaves him out.

TBF Nash was already on my team.

I thought about Bird... should have put him on, but there's an abundance of wing players I could have put on there.
