That’s crazy….

I was looking at John Stockton’s wikipedia page researching for an upcoming post and found my way to the all time NBA point leaders list. While there I came across something that I found strange concerning this guy.
In his entire career (a career that saw him score 38,387 points, good for #1 all time) he only scored one three-pointer. Granted the three-pointer was only around for about half his career, but still.

He was 1 for 18 behind the arc. I know he was a big man that lived in the paint but it was funny to scan across his stats, all these giant numbers, and then to see the that lone 1.

  1. The first 10 years or so of his career the NBA did not have the 3pt shot.
