Brooklyn Nets shooting guard Joe Harris calls Warriors point guard Stephen Curry the greatest shooter of all time.
Who doesn’t love some good ole’ fashion AMAs? Well, it’s a good thing Bleacher Report does a great deal of them. The “Ask Me Anything” virtual panel, if you will, gives fans the opportunity to connect with some of their favorite athletes. They literally get to ask them anything; its title doesn’t lie.
This week, Bleacher Report held an AMA with Brooklyn Nets shooting guard Joe Harris. The veteran, who’s entering his fourth year with the Nets, was asked a multitude of questions. However, one of the more on-the-spot questions he received was to name his top-three shooters of all time. Harris went on to include two current players on his own personal list.
“Steph [Curry], Klay [Thompson] for sure and then Ray Allen,” he said.
It’s a sensible take. Curry is fifth all-time in shooting percentage from behind the arc, having made 43.6% of his three-point attempts. He’s also third all-time with 2,483 three-pointers made. Allen is atop the record books with 2,973 three-pointers made during what was an 18-year career.
Thompson is 13th all-time with 41.9% of shots made from behind the arc and 16th all-time with 1,798 three made thus far in his career.
Last season, Harris led the NBA with a 47.4 three-point percentage. He additionally shot 50% from the field and averaged 13.7 points through 76 games for Brooklyn.
The 28-year old is heading into a season in which many are showing excitement for. This, due to the fact that Kyrie Irving is now a part of the organization. Kevin Durant is as well but doesn’t expect to play this year due to injury.
