Sporting Charts explains 50-40-90 Club

Since the NBA introduced the three-point line for the 1979-1980 season, only five players have been inducted into the 50-40-90 Club: Steve Nash ('06, '08, '09, '10), Larry Bird ('87, '88), Mark Price ('89), Reggie Miller ('94), and Dirk Nowitzki ('07).

A couple of players are unofficial members of the 50-40-90 Club, but since the NBA typically rounds shooting percentages to three decimal places, they were denied membership in the club. These players include Jeff Hornacek (.518-.418-.897 in 1990-1991) and José Calderón (.497-.406-.981 in 2008-2009). Larry Bird also posted a .496-.423-.896 in 1985-1986.
