Shaquille O’Neal Once Made a 3-Pointer in the NBA

Shaquille O’Neal has made 11,196 career baskets. Not surprisingly, 11,195 of which have been 2-pointers.

On Feb. 26, 1996, in a game against Milwaukee Bucks, Shaq received the ball well beyond the arc and hurled it towards the hoop. The ball somehow went in off the glass — not that he called it.

O’Neal has taken just 22 3-point attempts over the course of his career — averaging about one per year. His total 3-point percentage is .045, which is even less than one tenth of his .527 career free-throw percentage.
