    Who was it? Foye this season shoots more per 36 than anyone ever did, Stockton made some big shots, Okur and Korver were excellent hitting wide open threes. You choose.

    What record? Most makes?

    That doesn't mean he is the best..... it could mean that he shoots the most 3's.
    Think 3pt percentage is a better indicator than total 3pt makes.
    Having said that, i dont really disagree about foye being the best in jazz history..... i give korver the slight edge, but foye is 2nd on my list and just barely behind korver.

    Korver changed defenses just by being on the floor. Foye doesn't do that - he's seen more open 3's in 45 games this season than Korver has seen in his entire career.

    That's not to diminish Foye's value - Foye can consistently hit the open 3. That's something only a handful of Jazz players have been able to do the last 15 years.

    Memo. Whenever he shot, I always thought it was going in. He hit more clutch 3's than anyone else that I can remember.

    He is shooting a pretty good percentage also, and will destroy the single season record .... Korver is a better shooter but he kind of sucks ass also

    I don't think Korver is as good as shooter as Foye. The only thing Korver has on Foye is that his release is quicker. Foye does a better job of getting open, can shoot off the dribble, and can shoot better when contested.

    I've got to give it to someone who played starter minutes for a winning team for multiple seasons.

    It's probably actually Hornacek or Foye, but I said Memo because he wasn't "supposed" to be a shooter. 7-footers aren't really made for that, but apparently Memo was. Not the greatest center or defender we've ever had, but he sure helped us win some games. Clutch. What Cyrone said of Foye is true though...he's good at getting open & shooting off the dribble. But then Jeff was always good off balance. Korver had a nice shot & quick release, but otherwise he was too slow. He was too streaky IMO.

    Maybe I just miss Memo. I do hope they hold onto Foye.

    FG% wise it's Korver I think, but I think Memo was the biggest game changing 3 point shooter on that list. He helped keep the paint unclogged for the Jazz offense and the offense was brilliant at those times.

    The sheer volume has me leaning toward Foye. Hornacek never averaged more than 3 attempts a game as a Jazzman and was usually more wide open. Foye is at 5.4 a game (in less minutes) and buries them often with a hand in his face. Didn't think his percentage would hold up this long, but he is proving to be a cold blooded killer.

    I hate Randy Foye.

    I vote Randy Foye, with the sentimental vote going to Memo.

    **** Korver. He's a %-record protecting coward.

    If #Jazz G Randy Foye had his druthers, he would be in #Utah long-term. Read his thoughts on the Jazz on the blog: bit.ly/10t8ktY

    If I absolutely needed someone to take and make a 3-pt shot, I'm taking Stockton.

    You guys are forgetting the number of late-game and 2-for-1 situations where he'd pull up on the move from 28 feet and drill the shot.

    He also got up towards 50% 3-pt percentage by the end of his career.

    That isn't you taking the best 3pt shooter though, that is you picking the best player.

    I still think Stockton is the best 3-pt shooter. Otherwise, Foye would be the most confident and versatile shooter, but he's streaky. He got hot during the 2nd half of last season, and he's got it going now, mostly playing off of Al, but I would still trust Stockton to get and make a 3-pt shot in virtually every situation.
