Ranking the Best 'Pure Shooters' in the NBA for 2013-14 Season
Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Spor

When one of these NBA players lets the ball fly, you can typically close your eyes and wait to hear the sweet sound of a spherical object swishing through the net. 

Is anything sweeter?

Not for these guys, as they're the best pure shooters in the NBA. 

There's a big difference between being one of the best shooters and one of the premier scorers, as you'll find out on the next slide. To account for the discrepancy, I'm using an original metric to rank all of the NBA's qualified shooters. 

It's important to approach this objectively, as differentiating between some of the top marksmen in the Association would otherwise be impossible. Because of that, it's worth noting that there is no opinion in the rankings that follow, nor does anything matter but the numbers from the 2013-14 campaign. Reputations are irrelevant. 

Shooting a basketball is a difficult craft to excel at, but it's tough to call any of these guys anything other than masters.
