Warriors’ Steve Kerr thinks Stephen Curry could be the greatest shooter ever
There really is no point asking Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr who is the greatest shooter ever. Not only do the Warriors have some of the best shooters ever assembled (including Klay Thompson and Kevin Durant) so some bias is unavoidable, but it is spearheaded by arguably the greatest sniper of all time in Stephen Curry.
But just to be sure, the media wanted to get a definite answer from the former Chicago Bulls knockdown shooter himself who responds in a typical sarcastic fashion.

Kerr is just one of many to hold the 6-foot-3 Curry in high regard as a shooter with Brooklyn Nets’ Joe Harris most recently conceding that Curry is the greatest of all time despite unexpectedly beating him during last Saturday’s Three-Point Shootout.
The Davidson product is also closing in on the top three-point shooters in NBA history — Ray Allen and Reggie Miller, respectively — as he currently sits third with over a thousand treys separating them. But barring any injury, it’s highly probable that the 30-year-old could eclipse those numbers given how fast he has climbed the standings, and in fact, being the fastest to 2,000 three-point field goals made.
It is not all from downtown for the 10-year veteran however, as he is also adept in the lost art of the midrange. Last season, Curry led all players in field goal percentage when converting from midrange at a blistering 60 percent clip.
Combine all of these numbers and he has a legitimate case for undisputed shooting GOAT.
