Best Answer

Michael Jordan shot .497 career FG%, to Larry Bird's .496.. Bird averaged 24 pts per game, while Jordan averaged 30.1 (career totals).. Bird had higher PT and 3 pt numbers (.886 FT% and .376 3 pt for Bird) versus Michael's numbers (.835 FT% and .327 3 pt for Mike) but in this debate, I would have to give it to Michael Jordan. ---- Through the 2008 season, the highest career shooting percentage goes to Artis Gilmore at 58.19%. Shaq is 2nd at 58.05% and Mark West is 3rd at 58.03%. Yea i would have to agree with Michael Jordan has the best shooting percentage

I believe, though someone may correct me, that it was the 'Legend' Larry Bird.

AnswerArtis Gilmore...lifetime field goal percentage of .599. AnswerMark Price, free-throw pct of .904.

The correct answer: Artis Gilmore has highest field goal percentage for CAREER at .599. But for BEST single SEASON Wilt Chamberlain holds the record for field goal percentage at .727 accomplished in the 72-73 season.

Reggie Miller is the best shooter in NBA history.

no the hell he not kobey is the best shooter in the nba

there is no way in hell that Kobe is the best, he is the best closer maybe but not the best in history, it would have to be either reggie miller or Larry bird, and possibly dirk nowitzki, who i think is the best 7'0 foot shooter ever.
