Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry is arguably the greatest shooter in NBA history and he further solidified that status against the Sacramento Kings.
The superstar point guard hit 10 long distance shots at Golden 1 Center, continuing his ascent towards the top of the NBA’s all-time 3-pointers ladder.
Kyle Korver, currently playing for the Utah Jazz, remains to be one of the top 3-point specialists today. Not to disrespect Korver, but this won’t be a switching contest between him and Curry at the fourth spot.
The Warriors sharpshooter is hitting threes at a much larger volume than Korver. Curry has been doing this for the longest time, putting him in a great position to easily end up with the most 3-pointers ever when he finally hangs it up.
It’s still a long way from now and there are still plenty more splashes for Curry to make.
Surpassing Jason Terry will be accomplished in the blink of an eye, which will then place Stephen Curry behind two of the game’s greatest shotmakers in Reggie Miller and Ray Allen. At this rate, the Warriors’ two-time Most Valuable Player will surely leave the two legends of the game behind him in a few years time.
Throughout their careers, Miller and Allen averaged 1.8 and 2.3 three-point makes, respectively, compared to Curry’s 3.5 per game.
Some fans are lovers of the old school and they can’t seem to come to terms that Stephen Curry is actually the game’s shooting GOAT.
But if they consider several factors such as being insanely prolific, the ability to consistently make difficult long shots appear too easy, and the way the Warriors, led by Curry’s shooting, changed modern basketball, the debate would be over.
Don’t make Stephen Curry take a shot from the moon just to convince the naysayers.
Stephen Curry had his 11th career game with at least 10 3-pt FG tonight. No other player has more than 4 such games in NBA history.
