I wish to congratulate Ray Allen on becoming the NBAs all-time three-point king.&#160; But I guess I never realized what a list of non-stars he heads.<BR/>Ill give you Allen, Reggie Miller and Dale Ellis.&#160; All three had long careers, shot nearly 40-percent from three-point range and were considered one of the top two or three marksmen of their day.<BR/>But the list is pretty void of any starpower after that.&#160; No Bird. No Price. No Kerr, No Hodges. No Nash (hes 13th).&#160; The NBA adopted the three-point line for the 1979-80 season, Birds first in the league.<BR/>Heck, Jason Kidd is number 3 on the all-time list.&#160; And hes shot less than 35 percent from behind the arc for his career.<BR/>The top 50 includes such luminaries as Cutino Mobley, Stephen Jackson and Quentin Richardson.&#160; Not exactly a whos who of respected riflemen.<BR/>Allens feat is a testament to his endurance and conditioning.&#160; And for that he should be celebrated.&#160; <BR/>&#160; <BR/>&#160; <BR/>
