Steph Curry is now third all-time in three-pointers

The greatest shooter in NBA history is moving up the all-time list.

Steph Curry is the greatest shooter in NBA history. When all is said and done, the face of the Golden State Warriors franchise will be atop nearly every three-point list and record there is.

And on Friday night, in a blowout victory against the Chicago Bulls, Curry got a little closer to his place in history, as he moved into third place on the NBA’s all-time list of threes made.

For Curry to do that at age 30, in just his 10th season, is nothing short of spectacular. For perspective, here’s the top five in threes made, and how many games they played in parenthesis.

1. Ray Allen - 2,973 (1,300)
2. Reggie Miller - 2,560 (1,389)
3. Steph Curry - 2,283 (656)
4. Jason Terry - 2,282 (1,410)
5. Kyle Korver - 2,280 (1,141)

The Warriors are, in the eyes of many, the greatest three-point shooting team in NBA history, and that shows in the record books. In addition to Curry, two other Warriors are in the top-30 on the three-point list. Klay Thompson, with 1,673 triples, is 21st all-time, while Kevin Durant, with 1,510, is 30th.

Assuming good health, Curry should move into second place sometime next season, and first place not too far down the road.
