I didn't realize that Finley hit his 1,000 3-pointer the other night against the Sonics.

http://aol.nba.com/spurs/news/daily_blog.html

Michael Finley hit the 1,000th three-pointer of his career vs. Seattle on 2/21. Finley joins fellow Spurs Nick Van Exel (1,507) and Brent Barry (1,125) in the 1,000 three-pointers made club for their career, making the Spurs the only team in the NBA that have three players who have made at least 1,000 three pointers for their career.

Finley is also one of only four active players to be listed 6 foot 7 or taller to hit 1,000 or more threes for their career. (Cliff Robinson, Antoine Walker, Peja Stojakovic and Brent Barry have all hit the 1,000 three-point mark for their careers.)

Congrats Fin.

Congratulations Fin.

How in the heck did the cancerous growth that is Walker ever make 1000 3 point shots. It had to have taken him 10,000 tries to get there.

everytime the ball comes within 10 feet of Walker, it gets sucked up in a black hole and shoots out at the speed of light. Occasionally it goes in the basket. and then he travels and pouts like a baby.

Finley - 1,002-2,717 (.369)
Robinson - 1,203-3,377 (.356)
Stojakovic - 1,094-2,741 (.399)
Van Exel - 1,509-4,232 (.357)
Walker - 1,198-3,648 (.328)

Interesting...

Billups - 956-2,482 (.385)
Nash - 863-2,064 (.418)
Nowitzki - 833-2,202 (.378)


After minutes of careful, highly-scrutinized statistical analysis, I have come to the conclusion that Antoine Walker is, indeed, the worst 3-pt shooter in the game today. Stop 'Toine.

Yea that's exactly what I was thinking. How the hell did Antoine Walker get in that club lol. He's shooting a lot better than I thought he would be. I thought he'd be shooting atleast in the late 20's. Congrats to Mike. I actually saw them mention this on ESPN but didn't see a post on it so I assumed it wasn't that much of an achievement.
