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.
Kareem Abdul-Jabbar has attempted the most field goals in NBA history. He shot 28,307 times.
The top 10 players, with the most shot attempts in NBA history, are:
To my knowledge, I think either Steve Kerr or Mark Price, but I could be wrong
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.
Steve Kerr holds the NBA career record for 3-point shooting percentage at .454 percent, making 726 of 1,599 from 1989-2003.
Artis Gilmore with 59.9%.
Ray Allen is a great shooter and has almost perfect form.
The best team in the NBA history is Phoenix Suns.
Derrick Rose is the best driver. Joah King Noah is the best rebounder. Kobe Bryant is the best 3 point shooter
Mark Price is the best free throw shooter in NBA history with a percentage of .9039. He is the only player who averaged over 90% free throw shooting in NBA history.
Steph Curry is the best shooter in the nba currently
The best clutch shooter in the NBA is either Kobe Bryant or Kevin Durant
Ray Allen is best shooter but Kobe Bryant is the most clutch shooter
Steve Nash, plays for the Phoenix Suns, born in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada, is the best clutch free throw shooter in NBA history. However, Dirk Nowitzki has emerged as a very clutch free-throw shooter, making more than 95% of his free-throws that he shoots in the fourth quarter.
It really depends...there are quite a few, in the NBA now-Ray Allen, Kyle Korver...in history Larry Bird, Michael Jordan was a good scorer but shooting he was good but not the best.
Allen Iverson has the best crossover in NBA history.
