Klay Thompson has put together a first. The Warriors guard became the first player to hit 500 three-pointers in his first three seasons Wednesday, with a month of play left for Golden State.

Thompson hit 211 last year; with 178 through 16 games, he's on pace to shatter that. So if you average out to 200 per year, let's give him a generous 15 seasons compared to Ray Allen's 17-and-counting. That puts him at 3,000 made three-pointers at age 36, giving him the all-time record.
