The NBA’s Deadly 9 (Marksmen)

Ok, after watching the NBA Rising Stars & the 3-Point Shootout, I think I’ve finally arrived at Acceptance Avenue. The NBA is a shooters league now, and it’s Not my era anymore. Everyone (shit, feels like everyone) fires three’s like there is no tomorrow, and that’s what it’s going to be for the foreseeable future.

I still care about shot selection, and percentages, so good luck trying to make me waver on that.

I put together a list of NBA Marksmen, who not only knocks them down, but are among the most accurate:

Qualifications: 250 three attempts or better + accuracy (over 40%)

Otto Porter

  1. The Wizards are going to have to make a decision on Porter after this year. It will be interesting to see what he can command on the market or whether the Wiz will pony up the cash to keep him. He’s having his best season by far this year.

    1. Right, and with average talented getting cashed out last year, he has the best 3 point percentage out there, so he actually has something to hang his hat on. The Wiz gave all that money to Beal, so I wonder how that’s going to play out. I’m hella interested!
