The 30 Greatest 3-Point Shooters in NBA History

30. Jamal Crawford



Three-pointers made: 2,153 (5th all-time)
Three-pointers attempted: 6,175
Three-point percentage: 34.9%

Crawford’s flashy dribbles would lack substance without a consistent jump-shot to pair it with. The now 18-year veteran has averaged at least one made three per game since his second season in the NBA. Crawford walks into any arena ready to shoot. His fancy ball handling has fooled many a defender, and all Crawford needs is a little bit of space to get his high release jumper off. The eighth pick in the 2000 NBA Draft holds the all-time record for most career four-point plays with 51.

29. Jason Kapono



Three-pointers made: 457
Three-pointers attempted: 1,054
Three-point percentage: 43.4%

UCLA’s all-time leader in three-point percentage was a three-point specialist during his nine-year career that included stops in Miami, Toronto and Philadelphia. One of the most impressive three-point contestants we’ve ever seen, Kapono won the event in back-to-back years with scores of 24 and 25 out of a possible 30. Having only averaged 6.7 points per game throughout his career, Kapono is the prime example of not having to be a great overall player to be a great shooter.
