In the midst of Steph Curry moving up the all-time three-point shooting list, there’s talk around the League that he might not be the best shooter in the NBA. In fact, one of the longest-tenured players thinks that the best shooter is Duncan Robinson of the Miami Heat.
NBA veteran Udonis Haslem was recently a guest on the Neat and Unfiltered Podcast with Kenyon Martin Sr. and said that Duncan Robinson is the best shooter he’s ever seen.
“Duncan the best shooter I ever seen bruh. I’ve been with the greatest ones. Ray Allen, Mike Miller, James Jones, Rashard Lewis, Daequan Cook. I’ve been with some people that have won 3-point competitions.”
Haslem, currently a member of the Heat and teammate of Robinson, would go on to give more detail on what makes him so special when it comes to converting from beyond the arc.
“The thing that makes Duncan the best shooter is the way he gets his shot off. He gets his shot off in multiple different ways: off the dribble, off the handoff, step back, side step. I ain’t never seen nobody don’t stop moving throughout the whole game.”
Robinson is a second-year NBA player who went undrafted and started his college career at a Division III school. As a rookie in the 2019-20 season, he broke the team record for the most threes in a single season and got roughly a third of the way to becoming the franchise’s all-time leader in the category in that single season.
