One of the most common sports cliches is, "You can't teach speed and athleticism." I totally agree. But one thing about players that solely rely on these two attributes is that over the years that same speed and athleticism that made them effective will diminish due to age and injury.
When that happens, what do those players have to fall back on? Most become relegated to the bench or end up out of the league entirely. But when you are a pure shooter, you will always be needed in the league.
This list consists of the purest shooters in the NBA. It is a mix of superstars, stars and role players, both young and old. One thing about the players on this list is that they do not have to rely on speed and athleticism to be an effective player in the league.
Each of these players rely on a gift that can't be taught.
