Default Greatest Perimeter Scorer In NBA History?

I mean on guys who were known as big time scorers and the majority of their points came from the perimeter.

He said scorer, not shooter. Those two cannot/could not create their own shots.

It's gotta be prime Kobe.

Kobe's superior 3-point shooting makes him better than MJ in this regard.

When did Kobe get this reputation of some type of amazing 3 point shooter?

Jordan is consider the greatest perimeter player of all time, and greatest mid range player of all time. Jodan's superior mid range game, and Jordan also shot the 3 better on season's that he actually incorporated as part of his game and actually took more than 220 threes. (I don't count the years the 3 point line was shorten for Jordan, and Kobe's rookie season.) That's what people don't know about Jordan, than when he actually took a normal amount of 3s, his percentage was better than Kobe's, which makes sense since he was the superior mid range shooter.

Also don't forget basketball IQ, Jordan's ability to create shots much quicker, Fg%, Points Per Game, etc.

Might be the case for the Ray Allen of today but during his Bucks and Sonics day, he was more than capable of creating for himself.

Miller had some off the dribble moves as well. It wasn't like all he ever did was run off screens, that's just more of his forte.

Why do peeople continue tto act as if bryant 3pt shooting is so far ahead of jordans? Bryants career 3pt fg% is only 1 percentage point better than jordans. And jordan played in the 80s half of his career. A time in which the 3 wasn't really used.

and to answer the question, jordan is the greatest perimeter scorer ever.
