- Stephen Curry rewrites the NBA history book by scoring 300 3-pointers in a season in the least games
- Curry has joined Ray Allen as the only players to make at least 2,800 career 3-pointers
One of the most famous Basketball player of today’s era, Stephen Curry, who plays at Guard for the Golden State Warriors continues to rewrite the NBA’s history books, and believe it or not, there are just a handful of shooting records that he hasn’t broken yet.
On Tuesday night, Curry checked yet another one off of the list as he became the fastest player to hit 300 3-pointers in a single season in NBA history in their game against the New Orleans Pelicans.
Curry took mere 58 games to hit 300 on the season.
In addition to that record, Curry also joined the great Ray Allen (2,973) as the only player in the history of the NBA to hit 2,800 career 3-pointers. As of now, it is only a matter of time until Curry passes Allen to become the NBA’s all-time leader in made 3-pointers.
The two-time Most Valuable Player has been on an absolute tear this season, and he has almost singlehandedly took his team into the playoff picture in the Western Conference.
In the process, he has not only inspired his teammates but also struck fear into his opponents.
Draymond Green, Warriors’ forward, said, “Anytime you step on the floor with Steph Curry, there’s an advantage there,” after their win over the Pelicans on Monday, via the Mercury News.
Green said, “So, teams are terrified of him — and everywhere he runs on the floor, with or without the ball, teams are terrified. That type of gravity, he pulls a lot of weight … I wouldn’t want to see a team with Steph Curry on it.
“We all know what he’s capable of. The guy can take over a game and make it hard for any team in the NBA on any given night.”
Warriors forward Juan Toscano-Anderson used a Mike Tyson analogy to explain how it is to be on the same side as the best shooter in the game.
Toscano-Anderson said, “If you got into a street fight and you got Mike Tyson with you, how would you feel? That’s the best analogy I can give you.
“It makes you that much more confident. I got Steph Curry on my team, I feel good.”
This season, Curry has been on fire and he has given the fans with a plethora of memorable moments during the time when the whole world is facing the Covid-19 pandemic.. He has turned, an otherwise, middling Warriors team into must-watch TV on a nightly basis since he has basically been ‘on fire’ NBA Jam-style since the start of the season.
It is only fair to wonder how long Curry can continue on his current pace, but so far he has shown no signs of slowing down.
