Hawks vet Vince Carter moves up to 6th on all-time 3-pointers list

Hawks, Vince Carter

Atlanta Hawks forward Vince Carter has now hit the sixth most 3-pointers in NBA history.

Carter passed former Hawks point guard Jason Terry on Monday against the Memphis Grizzlies.

Carter is playing in his final NBA season. He entered Monday averaging 4.8 points and 2.1 rebounds for the Hawks while shooting 34.8 percent from the field, 29.1 percent from beyond the arc and 79.3 percent from the free-throw line.

The 43-year-old NBA veteran entered the league back in 1998 with the Toronto Raptors. As of Monday (Mar. 2), he has career averages of 16.7 points, 4.3 rebounds and 3.1 assists with the Raptors, New Jersey Nets (now Brooklyn Nets), Orlando Magic, Phoenix SunsDallas Mavericks, Grizzlies, Sacramento Kings and Hawks.

Carter has been getting standing ovations in all road arenas this season. After all, fans want to pay homage to an NBA legend.

The Hawks won’t make the playoffs, which is unfortunate because it would have been fun to watch Vinsanity play in the postseason one final time.

It has been fun to watch Vince Carter age gracefully in the NBA. Not everyone can do it, especially guys who used to be superstars like Vince.
