During the 1979-80 season the NBA incorporated the three-point field goal into game play, using a distance of 23 feet, nine inches around the arc, but with only 22 feet away from the basket at the corners.

Ever since, the three-pointer has become an integral part of the NBA, with some players even making their livings solely as three-point specialists. 

And this has especially been the case in recent years, evidenced by the numerous team and individual three-point records which have been broken during the past decade (especially since many of the previous records were set during 1995-96, when the three-point line was experimentally moved in for one season).

Furthermore, the importance of the three was certainly apparent this summer, as multiple of three-specialists were sought after as valuable free agent assets. 

And as a result of these and other offseason moves, many players are now primed to contend with the perennial three-point leaders and put up impressive three-shooting seasons. 

These are the 10 best three-point specialists for the 2010-11 NBA season.
