Over the past 25 NBA seasons, only six players have staked claim as members of one of the game’s most statistical groups: the 40/50/90 club. What makes this club so exclusive is that only five players in the past two-and-a-half decades have shot 40 percent from 3PT, 50 percent from the floor, and 90 percent from the charity stripe.
Even some of the game’s most heralded shooters have failed to reach the 40-50-90 threshold. Household names like Ray Allen, Jerry West, Glen Rice, Chris Mullin, and Alex English have all led notably iconic careers but even these sharpshooters fail to match the extraordinary stat line known by a select few.
The members of this exclusive statistical club include Larry Bird (‘86,’87), Mark Price (‘88), Reggie Miller (‘93), Steve Nash (2005,2007,2008), and Dirk Nowitzki (2008). With the final months of the season approaching, only a handful of players find themselves in contention for a place among the 40-50-90.
