Drazen was considered “The best shooter ever” to not only a lot of fans but great players that played against him including the man many consider the best shooter of all-time – Reggie Miller. Reggie talked about Drazen being “the best” in an episode of Open Court.

Michael Jordan also had some high praise for Drazen, “It was a thrill
to play against Drazen. Every time we competed, he competed with an aggressive attitude. He came at me as hard as I came at him. So, we’ve had some great battles in the past and unfortunately, they were short battles.” Here’s one of the battles.
