Recently, former NBA player Dale Ellis did an interview in regards to the shooting of current Boston Celtic Ray Allen and somehow go to the point of proclaiming himself the greatest shooter in NBA history.
We get more from Boston.com:
Ask any shooter, active or retired, and they will tell you they can get up off the couch and drain threes. That confidence is almost mandatory with great shooters, according to Ellis.
“I’m the best shooter of all time,’’ he said. “I know that from the jump. I set the standard. I gave them something to shoot for. I was the first player in the history of the game to get 1,000 3-pointers. To be able to play on that level, you have to have that attitude about yourself. You can say it’s arrogant or cocky or whatever, but that’s OK. There’s no way you can compete without it. There’s no way you can excel without that confidence level.’’
Clearly, I’m not going to doubt Mr. Ellis here and for video proof of his exploits, I think this might do him a little justice.
