The NBA introduced the 3-point line back in 1979, adding a new level to the game. The NBA 2K series has seen its fair share of great 3-point shooters, with some still being in the series today. The following list below has some of the best marksmen in NBA 2K12. And although a few might be missing, we think the players on this list are well-deserving.
Ray Allen - Boston Celtics
You can mention other players, but when talking about who the best 3-point shooter is in NBA 2K12, the definitive answer is Ray Allen.
Allen can hit the necessary trey during a fast break, or by running off screens and picks. He's one of the few shooters in 2K12 who can actually fade away to the side and still hit the 3-pointer with ease.
Although most strategies involve driving the lane and drawing contact, when you have Allen everything can change. Really, it's hard to argue that Allen is not only the best 3-point specialist in 2K12, but he's also the best pure shooter in the game as well.
Dirk Nowitzki;Jason Terry - Dallas Mavericks
Two of the best 3-point shooters in 2K12, both Terry and Nowitzki, can turn a game around for you if you're in need of treys instead of twos. Nowitzki is one of the best overall players in the game, and even with a hand in his face, he can easily knock down 3s due to his height. Just like Allen, Terry is great at hitting 3s on a fastbreak. Also, running a pick-and-roll or give-and-go with these two Mavs is just downright deadly. With an "A" 3-point rating, Terry is actually one of the best in the game. Even though Terry doesn't get as much recognition in the game as Nowitzki, he can still hold his own, and at times can be more deadly beyond the arc than his buddy Dirk.
Manu Ginobili;Richard Jefferson;Chris Quinn - San Antonio Spurs
The Spurs have one of the best 3-point tandems in the game. Ginobili, Jefferson and Quinn can help you blow your opponent out, or help you stay in a game. Ginobili is more known for driving to the lane, and although his 3-point rating is only a "B-," he's one of the most consistent shooters available.
