I think Nowitzki has a great shot, but I don't associate him as a "shooter" like the other players. In others, shooters tend to be SGs or SFs - players who come off screens to shoot a J and who live on the perimeter.
Nash maybe seen as a passer but that's irrelevant. His shot is amazing and that's the point of the list.

I'll give it to Dirk though, an argument can be made for him being in that top 10 with that stupid high release or the one legged fade away. Just hard to drop one of the ten for him.
