There are 32 players in history of the NBA 3-Point shot that have hoisted up 1000 career three-pointers and made over 40 percent of those attempts. (Per Basketball Reference)
Up that attempts number to 2000 and the number of players are halved. Up to 3000 attempts and the number is a nice, round ten players who have shot that many threes and made 40 percent of them.
At the top of the list, percentage wise, is the Lakers Steve Nash at an amazing 42.8 percent, but, right behind him is Atlanta's Kyle Korver at 41.8%.
Korver has been a lot of fun to watch this season and has provided much more than I anticipated when he arrived via a savvy cap move by Danny Ferry in which he used the trade exception gained from the Joe Johnson deal to acquire Korver, in the final year of his contract at 5M, from a "let's get under the luxury tax" Bulls team.
