The highest 3 point percentage is Jason Kapona
Steve Kerr holds the NBA career record for 3-point shooting percentage at .454 percent, making 726 of 1,599 from 1989-2003.
Three points is the most amount of points that can be given to one basket in the NBA. The shot must be shot from at least behind the three point line, unless it is a made shot that got fouled.
Toronto Raptors guard Jason Kapono has a career three-point field-goal percentage of .463, good enough for first place all-time in both the NBA and ABA.
In basketball, the free throw is an important shot; it can highly increase points for a team if the player should make the shot. In 2010, Stephen Curry was the NBA player who has the highest percentage of free throw shots.
Generally speaking, the highest percentage shots are the ones closest to the basket while not being opposed by a defender close by. The dunk is almost a sure thing, while layups are missed periodically. Dunks have a higher percentage in shot making. Dunking is the highest percentage shot in the NBA if you are unopposed to the basket, and if you can jump high enough to cleanly throw the ball into the hoop.
It is believed that the first NBA three-point shot was made in 1979. The player credited with making that shot was Chris Ford.
The highest ever three point percentage in NBA was in the 1996-97 NBA season, the Charlotte Hornets averaged a 0.4276 (42.76%) three point percentage every game.
