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.

Speaking of great shooters and one that will be in the argument for “best shooter ever,” here’s a pic of Drazen next to 1/3 of Run TMC, Del Curry and his young son Steph Curry.
