Default NBA's All-time Best Pure Shooters

1. Larry Bird
In terms of technique or statistical achievement, Bird is not on par with his constituents. For his career, Bird was only a 37 percent shooter from 3-point range and never made more than 98 in one season. His career total of 649 doesn't even crack the NBA's top 100. Heck, J.R. Rider (667), Rodney Rogers (690) and George McCloud (920) made more threes than Bird. However, when the stakes are at its highest and the lights are at its brightest, very few can compare with Bird. Larry Legend saved some of his best shots during the postseason, helping the Celtics win three titles in 1980s. Adding to his legendary legacy, Bird was also unbeatable during All-Star Weekend. He entered the 3-point contest three times and won it three times. One time he didnít bother to take off his warm-up jacket. Thatís Larry Bird for you. He won't wow you with stats or amazing highlight plays, but he is a pure assassin when it's money time.
