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.
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
West, as a top 10 pure shooter? No way to that but Mr Clutch for sure. As for Majerle, beautiful stroke. Drazen didn't do nearly enough to be up there. Mullin is not a top 10 of all time. We are talking pure shooter - I disagree with your list probably for the similar reasons you disagreed with mine.
