With Stephen Curry breaking Ray Allen’s record for the most three-pointers in NBA history, many felt that the debate for the greatest shooter in NBA history was decisively finished. Even Stephen Curry said that he can consider himself the greatest shooter of all time now that he broke Ray Allen’s historic record.
But what about the other great shooters? Bleacher Report took them into consideration and put together a list of the best shooters in the NBA since 2000. In this list, they included players like Mike Miller, JJ Redick, Peja Stojakovic, Dirk Nowitzki, Kevin Durant, Steve Nash, Kyle Korver, Ray Allen, Klay Thompson, and Stephen Curry taking the first spot.
Bleacher Report's Best Shooters Since 2000:
1. Stephen Curry
2. Klay Thompson
3. Ray Allen
4. Kyle Korver
5. Steve Nash
6. Kevin Durant
7. Dirk Nowitzki
8. Peja Stojakovic
9. JJ Redick
10. Mike Miller
Fans reacted to this list on Instagram, mostly asking about JJ Redick, as the Instagram post only had the top-8, and Redick was 9th on the list. Whereas others mentioned that Kevin Durant should be higher on the list than his current head coach Steve Nash, whose placement people were unhappy with.

The list has been making the rounds, with a lot of fans questioning the placement of certain players, such as Klay Thompson, Ray Allen, and of course, KD and Steve Nash. But they also questioned why players like James Harden, Damian Lillard, and even Reggie Miller didn't make the list, especially Miller because he played till 2005.
There was no doubt about who was going to take the top spot. Stephen Curry is the greatest shooter of all time now, and will only further cement his legacy going forward into the rest of his career. While fans may not agree with this list as a whole, there is no denying that each player on the list was a great shooter in their own right.
