You probably don’t need to be reminded that Steph Curry is the greatest shooter NBA history. But it never hurts to be reminded of just how dynamic the Golden State Warriors superstar is.
This is evident in his percentages. Not just his standard percentages, but his deep percentages. Kirk Goldsberry, who does stats, analysis, and shot charts for ESPN, shared this glorious graphic before yesterday’s game, pointing out that Curry is 45-94 on threes between 30 and 35 feet since the start of the dynasty.
As a reminder, the three point line is 23 feet, nine inches, and even closer from the corners. So these three s are deep - really deep.
And, for perspective, only one player this season is shooting better on all threes than Curry’s 48% mark on super deep threes. Though, hilariously enough, that one player is Steph’s brother, Seth Curry.
The lesson, as always: What Steph Curry does is completely unreal, and we’ve never seen anything like it.
