NBA 2K22 ratings have dominated the conversation today as 2K Sports started trickling out more and more reveals.

On top of the many reveals for overall rating, they've also taken a deeper look at the best 3-point shooters in NBA 2K22.

Steph Curry and Klay Thompson dominate as top 3-point shooters in NBA 2K22

There's just no debate about the top two 3-point shooters in the NBA, and NBA 2K22 is ready to reinforce that conversation in a big way.

When it comes to shooting threes, there's Steph Curry, and then there's Klay Thompson, and then there's everyone else in the NBA.

Unsurprisingly, it's prolific offensive genius Steph Curry who takes the very top spot, and when you look at his stats it's really no surprise.

Through a decade of play, Steph Curry has managed a mind-boggling 43.3% 3-point percentage, and with just a few years less we've seen Klay Thompson hold an impressive 41.9% 3-point percentage.

At a glance, it might seem like they'd find themselves much closer in 3-point rating considering how similar their percentage is, but there's one set of numbers that makes the gap clear.

Klay Thompson is a beast with 1,798 career 3-pointers since being the 11th pick in the 2011 NBA Draft, and that's something no one can take away from him.

Meanwhile, Steph Curry, who was the 7th pick in the 2009 NBA Draft (just two years earlier) has an absolutely staggering 2,832 career 3-pointers.

Thompson may raise some eyebrows by being placed this high, but the only thing in question is whether he can remain healthy through this season.

Plagued with injuries the last few years, Thompson is still an amazing 3-point shooter, and he's earned the opportunity to start this season as one of the best in NBA 2K22.

NBA 2K22 Ratings: Top Five 3-Point Shooters

Of course, there are other names that round out the top five, though with a significant gap between them and the pair of Steph Curry and Klay Thompson.

Here's the full list of the top five 3-point shooter ratings in NBA 2K22:

  • Stephen Curry, 99 3pt Rating
  • Klay Thompson, 95 3pt Rating
  • Joe Harris, 90 3pt Rating
  • Seth Curry, 90 3pt Rating
  • Duncan Robinson, 90 3pt Rating

Joe Harris, Seth Curry, and Duncan Robinson all have their own strengths, and there's no denying they're among the best 3-point shooters in the league today.

They've definitely proven themselves worthy of this list, and the fact that they're so far from a 99 3pt rating is more of an endorsement of how insanely good Steph Curry is than an indictment of those who couldn't reach that level.
