1. Steve Kerr, Shooting Guard

Last but not least, we have the current Golden State Warriors head coach and former Bulls 6-foot-3 shooting guard Steve Kerr. During his second stint with the Bulls, Jordan would get a nice piece of the supporting cast in Kerr that would be one of the best shooters of the decade. Kerr would win multiple 3-Point Contests, and help the Bulls to their back end of the dynasty years in the 1990’s.

Over the course of more than a decade long NBA career, Kerr won five titles. Three of those came between 1996-1998 with the Bulls, and the other two came with the San Antonio Spurs. Kerr was definitely a proven winner during his NBA career too. Some of his best and most efficient seasons would come in the mid-to-late 1990’s with the Bulls.

In his five seasons with the Bulls, Kerr would average 8.2 points per game, while shooting 50.7 percent from the field, a sparkling 47.9 percent from beyond the arc, and 85.4 percent from the charity stripe. With more than 75 games under his belt with the Bulls in the playoffs, Kerr shot 43.4 percent from the field and 38.6 percent from beyond the arc.

Any of the flaws that you could actually find in Kerr’s shooting percentages from different distances were from the mid-range. He was truly a modern shooter playing in the NBA that was well ahead of his time. He shot better than 58.0 percent from 16-feet-to-three-point range in the two seasons that the stat was measured with the Bulls. And he registered a 62.4 career true shooting percentage with the Bulls.
