Desmond Bane is one of the best three-point shooter in the NBA. The 23-year-old sophomore shooting guard averaged 3.6 three-pointers per game on a 43.6% shooting.
The Grizzlies shooting guard is aware of his shooting ability and is confident with it. Bane puts himself just below Steph Curry when it comes to best shooters.
When asked how many three-point shooters are better than him right now, Bane has a quick reply. “Steph Curry.”
“Other than that, you’re gonna have to show me,” he tells Sports Illustrated, leaning back in a courtside seat. “Steph deserves his flowers, and Klay Thompson, I mean, he’s come back from injury. But outside of that I want to be looked at and talked about in the same conversation as those guys. … That’s what I’m striving for.”
