First of all, Kobe Bryant holds the record for most three- pointers made with twelve in one game, on January 7th, 2003 vs. the Seattle SuperSonics. Hitting 12 threes is scoring 36 points from beyond the arc.

This record can only add on to Kobe’s legacy of being an assassin on the court when it comes to basketball. Meanwhile, on January 22nd, 2006
When testing his accuracy they made him use an anchor’s bull eyes which is known to be very difficult to hit even in Olympics levels. When testing his accuracy they also used sensors that allows you to find out his release velocity, launch angle, and spin rate. The results for Drew was a perfect 10 out of 10 which is incredible this why he is consider one of the best quarterbacks in the league right now. His results showed that four of his darts he throw hit the center of the bull eyes. It is accurate to say that when Drew throws a pass it is always thrown with consistency with a velocity of 52 miles per hour with a identical six degree launch angle that allows his release to spin at approximately 600 rpm which creates a gyroscopic torque in which gravity tries to pull the spin of the nose downward but the aerodynamic forces of the wind that floats over the ball counter balances each other to keep the ball on target where wobble occurs as the ball spins slightly of the axis the small circle of the nose traces in the air which is what makes his throws accurate.

LeBron’s assist numbers through 10 years of play are close to Kobe’s assist numbers throughout 17 years. Also Kobe shoots the ball at a tremendously high rate, showing that he solely depends on his individual performance. Over a 17 year span Kobe shot 24,301 shots, and that statistic includes shots from the 3-point line. While LeBron shot 15,411 shots over 10 years.

Spoiled: The Best Two Basketball Players of All Time The sport of basketball was created over a hundred years ago in the year 1891 by Dr. James Naismith at a YMCA where they used peach baskets and soccer balls.
