Golden State Warriors superstar Stephen Curry has had an unbelievable habit of breaking NBA records. The wildest thing about all these is the fact that many of the marks Curry has shattered were actually his own.
A few days ago, Curry broke his own record for most three-pointers through the first four games of the season against the Phoenix Suns.
Other than that, Curry has, time and again, one-upped himself in terms of total three-pointers for an entire season. In fact, Curry has the three highest single-season long distance totals in history. Teammate Klay Thompson gave the hiccup at No.4, only to see Curry’s name again sitting at the fifth spot.
Per @EliasSports, Stephen Curry's 22 three-pointers through the first four games of the season are a new NBA record for most threes through the first four games. Curry set the previous mark of 21 in 2015-16.

On Wednesday night against the Washington Wizards, the two-tie Most Valuable Player was at it again, scoring 51 points on the strength of 11 three-pointers in just three-quarters of play.
This marks Curry’s sixth career game with at least 11 three-point field goals. For more context on the insanity that is Stephen Curry’s shooting, Zachary Kram of The Ringer makes the ultimate historical comparison.
Games with 11+ 3-pointers:
Steph Curry: 6
Every other player in NBA history: 7 combined

That’s one player as opposed to thousands of other names who have stepped foot on an NBA court.
When Stephen Curry decides to finally hang his sneakers for good, a safe bet, barring anything unforeseen, is we’ll get to see his name on top of the league’s all-time three-pointers list.
