The NBA’s Top Perimeter Shooters

Ninety-two guards have taken over three-hundred shots this season.  The San Antonio Spurs have four of the thirty best shooters among guards ranked by True Shooting Percentage.

Tony Parker and Manu Ginobili have posted 56% and 58% TS respectively.  As you may have guessed Gregg Popovich has two guards who have been even better than his future hall-of-famers.

Among guards and guard/forwards here are the NBA’s greatest shooters this year:

How I Love My Wizards, and John Wall

The Washington Wizards are my team to watch for the next 3 years.  The next OKC Thunder.

This season, point guard John Wall is posting a career high for scoring at nearly 20 points/36 minutes.

He ranks above some big names in scoring…
