    JJ Reddick claimed that he is one of the best shooter in basketball along with Steph, Klay and KD.

    Do others agree with that? Who would you list as the best shooters in the game today?

    Pretty hard list. I think Steph and Klay are there for sure as 1 and 2. After that it's kind of depends on what you define as a shooter. Is Kyle Korver a better shooter than CJ McCollum? What about Kevin Love or KD? Kyrie or Dame? Redick or Lonzo Ball? Just too hard to decide.

    JJ is certainly in the Convo.

    But, I might go with the Rookie in Boston, Tatum or Lou Williams and the 3 Warriors.

    @CitySushi I caught that shit...lol

    This may be a bit biased but based on what I've seen from Wayne Ellington since he's been with Miami, I'm throwing him in the conversation

    Curry and Klay are the only 2 sure things.

    After that, there is a case to made for many guys and Reddick is certainly one. He is definitely a better pure shooter than guys like McCollum and even Durant. The problem is those guys can create their own and Reddick can't.

    I think JJ's got it right. It's Curry, Klay, KD, and him.

    I suppose he's more of a scorer than a shooter but he gets the ball in the hole.
