Shooting three-pointers is what NBA is about these days. Teams are shooting more threes each and every season as they want to spread the floor in order to go into the paint later and make some plays. Golden State Warriors is one of the best at it, and threes are the biggest reason why they were successful in the past two seasons. They have a couple of guys that can put the ball in the hole from a distance, but let’s check out all the sharpshooters that NBA as to offer today.
5. Devin Booker, Phoenix Suns – Booker is a great shooter both off the dribble and off the catch. He is using screens pretty well and is only in his second season with the Suns. The kid possesses a smooth shooting motion and deadly range. Already one of the best that NBA has to offer.
4. Ryan Anderson, Houston Rockets – One of the biggest Rockets’ offseason moves was bringing in Ryan Anderson who has thrived under Mike D’Antoni and with James Harden passing him the ball. Great in pick and pop combinations, Andreson has unreal three-point range.
3. J.J. Redick, Los Angeles Clippers – Redick has been one of the best shooters ever since he came into the league. He is good with and without the ball, he is coming off screens beautifully while also being able to square up for the shot perfectly. His technique is amazing, and every young shooter should look at what JJ Redick does.
2. Klay Thompson, Golden State Warriors – Klay is one of the phenomenal shooters that the Warriors have. He does it effortlessly as his stroke is pretty smooth. He can put the ball on the floor, shoot off the dribble or off the catch. Thompson can catch fire at any time, and it’s pretty dangerous for other teams as they can be blown out by a single player.
1. Stephen Curry, Golden State Warriors – He is not only the best in the game today, but maybe ever. Nobody has ever shot the ball of the dribble like Curry does. His range is the best in the NBA, and someone’s bad shot position is a good one for this man. Quick release, great arch, and his ability to hit the shot from any given spot on the floor make this guy maybe the best ever.
