Basketball is a simple game. You just have to put the ball in the basket. These players, the NBA's leaders in effective field goal percentage (eFG%), have done it better than anyone else so far this season.

Even using effective field goal percentage, which adjusts traditional field-goal percentage to account for three-pointers being worth more in a risk/reward sense, this is a category dominated by big men. Despite the move towards more perimeter-based offensive attacks, those who tower above the rest still make up the bulk of the league's best shot-makers.

These players just barely missed out on the top five:

10. Matt Barnes – .567
9. Dwight Howard – .571
8. Danny Green – .571
7. Tiago Splitter – .572
6. Jared Dudley – .573

The following represent the best of the best.
