NBA Power Rankings: Ray Allen and the 20 Best Shooting Strokes In the NBA

February 11th, 2011 by Joseph Chasan Leave a reply »
Ray Allen went into the NBA record books last night.

With his second trey of the game, he passed Reggie Miller and officially became the most prolific three-point shooter in NBA history, with 2,561 career buckets from downtown.

This is a phenomenal individual accomplishment for one of the great gentleman of the game, but it's almost anti-climactic, simply because it's been pretty much a foregone conclusion for a while. 

And rest assured, that's a compliment.  It's a testament to Allen's consistency and longevity as one of the best shooters in the game.

As a nod to the historic achievement, Bleacher Report thought we'd use the occasion to take a look at the best pure shooters in the NBA today.  Will one of these other players be able to take down Allen's record someday?  Maybe.

But probably not.
