Because he is the all time leader in missed shots. Career 32.9% from 3.

Ditto McGrady. Taking a lot of shots doesn't make someone a great shooter.

As far as Stockton goes i would say tier 2 or maybe 3. He was the opposite of Kobe. He had very good shot selection which made him look like a better shooter than he really was. I watched him a lot an never really thought of him as a great shooter.

Kobe had bad shot selection. If his shot selection was just average i think he would be to 35-37% from 3 and over 50% on 2s.

Harden tier 2. His 3 pt % of 36.5% is a bit weak to be considered elite but i will give him extra points for volume. 85.5% from the foul line also borderline.
