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.
With his third three-pointer tonight, Stephen Curry (2,283) has passed Jason Terry (2,282) for third place on the NBA’s all-time three-pointers made list. He now trails only Ray Allen (2,973) and Reggie Miller (2,560) for most threes in NBA history.— Warriors PR (@WarriorsPR) January 12, 2019
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.
