Byron Scott really in the top-10? I don't think he deserves it, as he didn't have a whole lot of range.

Dan Majerle wasn't a sharpshooter but more of a gunslinger. He doesn't belong anywhere close to the top-10.

One guy that should be on every top-10 list is Drazen Petrovic. His career was cut short by an off-court accident, but he was one of the best pure shooters to ever play the game. I would put Petrovic ahead of Person, Stojakovic, Rice, Ellis, Ainge (he doesn't belong in the top-10), Curry, and many others. The only guys that I would put ahead of Petrovic are Miller, Allen, Bird, and Mullin.

Oh, some guy named Jerry West should be in the top-5.

My top-10:

1. Larry Bird
2. Reggie Miller
3. Jerry West
4. Ray Allen
5. Chris Mullin
6. Drazen Petrovic
7. Dale Ellis
8. Peja Stojakovic
9. Glen Rice
10. Del Curry
