Curry, on the hunt for another superhuman record

Stephen Curry (33 years and 1.88 m) is the best shooter in history in the NBA. A visual confirmation that you are one step away from having a leg


Stephen Curry (33 years and 1.88 m) is the best shooter in history in the NBA. A visual confirmation that you are one step away from having a legal certificate: in a short period of time, one or two games predictably, will become the league’s top 3-pointer ever, surpassing Ray Allen’s 2,973. The guard, a two-ring champion with the Boston Celtics (2008) and Miami Heat (2013), reached the record with 7,429 attempts and 1,300 games. His percentage, 40% with 2.3 triples scored per game.

The Golden State Warriors point guard will pass him with fewer than 7,000 pitches (he is now at 6,874) and 800 games (787).. And a percentage higher than 40% (43.2%) and 3.8 hits from the perimeter. A voracity that has broken all logic with 22 meetings with 10 or more triples and the longest streak in history with at least one triple scored, 157, from November 13, 2014 to November 3, 2016. Almost two years without missing to his appointment with the perimeter.

He only has one mole, the one with the most triples broken in a single duel. A cap, 14, held by Klay Thompson, his Golden State Warriors teammate. The shooting guard reached the milestone on November 29, 2018 against the Chicago Bulls. Curry has to settle for sharing second place with Zach LaVine – they got 13 against the New Orleans Pelicans and Charlotte Hornets, respectively.

More triples in a single season

To all those highs, we must add one more, the one with the most triples made in a single season. The two-time NBA MVP (one unanimously, something never seen before) reached 402 in the 2015-16 season. It was the first time that the 400 barrier had been surpassed. Something unique that can remain a dead letter this year by the work and grace of Curry himself.

At the moment, and after 25 games played, he adds up to 135. If he continues with his current rhythm, 5.4 scored per game on average, Akron player would jump the 425 border with 427. These 5.4 are his all-time maximum, surpassing the one he established five years ago by 0.3. Impossible? He is Stephen Curry, capable of destroying the laws of nature and logic.
