    You know, I like Freddie as much as the next guy, but this guy's on major crack.

    I nominate this to be the most completely assinine post of the day. First of all Bird's career percentage from the 3 pt line is 37%. We still have a few hours left though, maybe you can top this one.

    I love Reggie, don't get me wrong. He's done great things for the Pacers and this city. He even has an all time record to call his very own. With that said however, to even think that Reggie is capable of holding his own against a player like Bird is ridiculous. Let's compare shall we?

    Reggie has his three pointer record, an Olympic gold medal, a few All Star selections under his belt, several show stopping moments, and frankly, that's about it.

    Bird was college player of the year in '79, was the NBA rookie of the year, has 3 MVP's, three titles, is a 12 time All Star and 9 time All NBA 1st team, career scoring average of 24.3 ppg, 69 (yes, 69!) career triple doubles, won the three point shootout in '88, a few show stoppers of his own, and just for good measure, he has the same gold medal Reggie does.

    Now, I understand that Bird accomplished most of what he did before you were a glimmer in your daddy's eye, but to come on here and say he sucks is just stupid. Reggie doesn't have anything at all that Bird would ever be jealous of. You can annoint Reggie the God of all creation if you choose, but don't trash a player of Bird's caliber just because we don't agree with you about Reggie.

    the best pure shooter right now, has to be Peja Stojakovic.
    I don't know about that. Dirk is every bit as automatic from the arc as Peja and he doesn't disappear in the playoffs.

    Seems like everytime I watch Peja he has a bad game. I can only remember one game he had against the Pacers where he really hurt us. And that was several years ago pre-Artest.

    Peja is very overrated as a player and even as a shooter

    How is Quentin Richardson not in that list? He is leading the league in 3-pointers made...He's obviously top 3 this year.

    Man trust me when i say that there are alot better Shooters/Scorers in Yugoslavia (they will stay for playoffs aswell!) than Peja is... i know because they show Euroleague here everyday, there are some much more crazy shooters here, yesterday i saw a 67" yugoslavian dude his name was Stepanovic, he was like 10-11 from 3PT Land, 23-23 FreeThrows and he hit the game tying 3PTer aswell.. they like fouled him/pushed him/punched him from 3PT area and he was able to hit the 3PT Shot and even score the FreeThrows... he scored 67 points and he is playing like this almost everyday, i just wonder why guys like this are not in the NBA... he would like Schock the NBA

    dude the guy hit the most but bricked the most ok Any player in the Nba could attempt as many threes and hit more threes if they attempted as much as him alls i'm saying he dosen't deserve the top 3 spot.

    That's why Petrie was shopping him. Geoff Petrie rarely gets the bad end of any deal. If Petrie is willing to trade a guy, you can bet that there's something wrong with his game.

    That really sounds like something Mark Price did.

    But I can't remember if he ever had his overall FG% that high.

    You're right. Mark Price did it and Larry Bird in the 80's before Reggie did it in 94. Over 50% from the field, 40% from the arch, and 90% from the FT line. Amazing!

    Bird was an awesome shooter and Mark Price might be the NBA's most underrated player of all time. Price was every bit as good as Isiah statistically, even better in some ways, but without the flare and killer instinct that Zeke had.

    Larry is not coming back, he didn't have a meeting with Orlando for not reason, yeah he is coming back to the NBA but not to the Pacers, the notion that he is a taking a year off and then come back is absurd.

    Yeah - Price, I didn't even think about him when I was going through the great shooters of the 80's and 90's in my head. But it's there, he's had some of the best shooting years in history. The 50%, 40%, 90% is an amazing stat.

    Also goes to show how incredible Reggie's shooting was for that stretch of his career. Bird should be a no-brainer, one of the most efficient scorers in the history of basketball. What a player.

    I've always thought the term "best shooter" players that can knock down shots from everywhere on the court and can knock them down in different ways, such as off the dribble,set shots and catch and shoot. As far back as I can remember Mullin, Bird, Price, Reggie where some of the greatest all around shooters you would find. As far as today goes, Allen and Peja who have to top that list because they can hit shots everywhere from the floor and do it in a variety of ways.

    It is probably not going to be popular, but I think one of the best shooters in the league right now is Matt Bonner. Excellent catch and shoot guy and spot up shooter.

    FACT: Larry shot 40% or better 6 of his 13 seasons.

    He's no ron artest, that's for sure.
