Ranking NBA’s Top 10 3-Point Shooters of 2014-15 Season

The three-point shot is the future of the NBA.

According to Bleacher Report’s Grant Hughes, the average squad has increased its long-distance attempts from 15.8 to 22.4 per game in the past 10 years. This represents a staggering 41.8 percent rise and is a sure sign of a league-wide culture change—thanks to statistical analytics, teams are learning just how efficient three-pointers are and are taking more of them.

With the emphasis on behind-the-arc shots continuously increasing, general managers need to be aware of which players are good at three-pointers (and, just as important, which aren’t) as they construct their teams.

There are a couple of main existing statistics that can be used to quantify a player’s outside shooting ability. Three-point shooting percentage is decent, but it would tell us Eric Gordon is better than Stephen Curry from downtown. Not a chance.

Made three-pointers per game isn’t too bad, but it would tell us Patrick Beverley is more dangerous than Anthony Morrow from the great beyond. Give me a break.

There has never been an all-encompassing statistic to judge a player’s overall three-point shooting ability.

Until now.

Flip to the next slide for more details before we go on to find out who the 10 best three-point shooters of 2014-15 are.
