So you're wondering who's hit the most threes in an NBA season? Let's get in to it!

If someone who hasn’t watched a NBA game in a couple of decades were to watch a game today, they would probably be surprised by a few things. Probably the most shocking change would be the lack of dominant centers and the overwhelming importance of the three-point shot. It’s crazy to think about, but before 1979, the three-pointer wasn’t even a thing in the NBA. Now, teams win games by having clutch three-point shooters on their team, and it's hard to imagine the game without it.
