Chicks dig the long ball. These days, so do coaches, and a quick way to make an NBA rotation is to be one of the league leaders in three-point percentage.
Remarkably, three New York Knicks—Jason Kidd, Steve Novak and Carmelo Anthony—are shooting better than 42 percent from behind the arc. So too are Patty Mills of the San Antonio Spurs and Kyle Korver of the Atlanta Hawks.
But no one in that group has shot quite well enough to be among the true elite, however.
Here, we look at where the NBA's five best long-range snipers have made their shots in 2012-13.
(This list only includes qualified leaders. Players have traditionally needed to make at least 55 three-pointers in a season to be considered as qualified leaders at the end of the season. Current requirements are pro-rated for the number of games played thus far. All shot charts courtesy of NBA.com.)
