Unless you live in a parallel world, it's no surprise that Steph Curry tops the 2K rating of best 3-point shooters. Following him at the 2nd position is his splash brother Klay Thompson.
Curry had one of his career-best seasons this year, as he eclipsed his second scoring title. The 2x MVP also became the Warriors' all-time leader in scoring, surpassing Wilt Chamberlain.
The 3x NBA champion averaged 32.0 PPG, 5.8 APG, 5.5 RPG, and 1.2 SPG on a 48.2% shooting from the field and 42.1% from the 3-point line. Curry is a career 43.3% from the 3-point line.
The baby-faced assassin is widely regarded as the best shooter in the history of the NBA. The superstar is a threat as soon as he passes half-court.
Curry is so lethal with the basketball that putting a single defender on him is never enough since he can pull up from any corner of the court. During the 2020-21 season, we had witnessed opposition teams employing multiple defenders on Curry, especially during the play-in tournament.
The former unanimous MVP finished 3rd in the MVP race this year and was also the ESPY NBA player of the year.
Despite missing 2 full NBA seasons, Klay Thompson is still the 2nd best 3-point shooter in this year's 2K edition. It is no secret if Klay gets hot, there is literally nothing anybody can do.
His 69 point performance in 29 minutes and 37 points in a single quarter is evidence of that. Klay still holds the record for most no of 3's made in a single match (14 against the Bulls in 2018).
The 5x All-Star is a career 41.9% shooter from beyond the arc. Klay, who has missed 2 NBA seasons due to catastrophic injuries, is eager to make his comeback this season. Thus reuniting the splash brothers for the first time since the 2019 NBA Finals.
A relatively new entrant in the 3-point shooters league, Duncan Robinson has made quite a mark from beyond the arc. The 27-year old definitely qualifies as an elite scorer. The Miami Heat shooting guard was an impressive 40.8% from beyond the arc in the 2020-21 season.
These players have definitely changed the game, the pioneer of the movement being Stephen Curry. The current era of basketball has 3-point shooting as one of the most integral aspects of an individual's game.
