Default Best NBA shooters ever modern era?

Just like we rate athleticism I thought it'd be interesting to see what ISH thought about best shooters.

Criteria:
*I'm only using players from 1990+ since those are the only ones I've really seen play a lot.
**Also using their prime abilities

1. Ability to use screens to get open shots /10

2. Ability to dribble, and/or create separation and put a shot /10

3. Ability to hit the wide/semi wide open jumper /10

4. Ability to hit layups/shots besides the three /10

5. Ability to hit clutch shots /10

6. Efficiency of shooting AND shooting pace (40,50,90 type stats and how many shots they hit)

Ray Allen: 53
9, 9, 9, 9, 9, 8

Steph Curry: 50
6, 10, 9, 8, 7, 10

Peja Stojakovic: 50
7, 9, 9, 9, 6, 10

Kevin Durant: 49
3, 9, 8, 10, 8, 10

Dirk Nowitzki: 49
3, 10, 8, 10, 10, 8

Steve Nash: 47
2, 9, 9, 10, 9, 8

Reggie Miller: 46
10, 5, 7, 7, 10, 7

John Stockton: 43
4, 7, 8, 8, 8, 8

Kevin Durant 8/10 on clutch shots?

Nash 2/10 on ability to use screens to create a shot?

Ridiculous thread.

Means running off screens, not using a screen roll.

yeah i should definitely add Allan Houston and Glen Rice to the list. Houston not so much..his best season pales in comparison to most, but Glen Rice had a 26.8 ppg, 47% from three, making 2.6 tres a game season.

I still laugh at how Reggie Miller built up this "clutch" aura, despite having a very limited resume when it came to crunch time heroics. In all the biggest moments of his career, and the biggest series in his career, he more often then not came up short.

Yeah, he definitely gets the benefit of the doubt. However, I watched him single handedly deliver one of the most clutch performances I've ever seen in a playoff game. For a game that can't jump, and is not fast he someone managed to succeed. I'm talking about the game that he dunked it to send it into overtime against the Nets (i think).

ray allen better at using screens than curry? what stat can you use to back it up, because curry is almost unstoppable coming off screens and shoots much higher percentage than Ray allen.

also nash a 2? what drugs are you on.

OP gave Curry a 6 for off the screen 3's?

From the Curry MSG highlights, I saw pull up 3's, off the dribble 3's, off the sceen 3's, crossover 3's, and fadeaway 3's. If that's not convincing, go watch the Staples Center game a few nights ago.

As far as range, efficiency and difficulty, Curry is the best 3-pointer in the history of the game already. He just need the clutch factor, and playoff experience to add. Then he'll be the GOAT 3-point shooter.
