The 30 Greatest 3-Point Shooters in NBA History

27. Paul Pierce



Three-pointers made: 2,143 (6th all-time)
Three-pointers attempted: 5,816
Three-point percentage: 36.8%

Pierce proved that great shooters don't always need the prettiest of looking shots. The Celtics legend utilized more of a push shot to knock down the 2,143 threes he made during his career. Always a great scorer, Pierce didn't start gaining notoriety as a shooter until Boston formed "The Big Three." In the trio's four full seasons together, Pierce made 1.6 threes per game at a 38.7-percent clip. In 2010, Pierce won All-Star weekend's Three-Point contest, beating out a field that included a rookie named Stephen Curry.
