The purity of this man's shot makes each one a thing of exquisite beauty. That pic doesn't really show off that side of him, but it does highlight those big brown eyes, which are ok if you like that sort of thing.

#wegonnabechampionship (Spottie), Friday, 10 April 2015 22:06 (six years ago) link

I wonder if he's the Babe Ruth of 3 point shooting, if we'll have to wait 25 years for anyone to flirt with his records.

Matt Armstrong, Friday, 10 April 2015 23:00 (six years ago) link

hard to say with all the 'new' focus on the three. Like Klay is already tracking ahead of where Steph was at this point in his career.

#wegonnabechampionship (Spottie), Friday, 10 April 2015 23:05 (six years ago) link

not really if you consider percentage.

Matt Armstrong, Friday, 10 April 2015 23:09 (six years ago) link

Klay 768 through first four years
Steph 644 through first four years

#wegonnabechampionship (Spottie), Friday, 10 April 2015 23:26 (six years ago) link

assuming dame keeps pace next year he'll be hovering just above 800 through four years jeez

Clay, Saturday, 11 April 2015 05:42 (six years ago) link

steph basically making about 30-40 more a season over klay tho so i guess it'll come down to health and longevity, but it could be close when all is said and done. dame def gonna be around too.

#wegonnabechampionship (Spottie), Saturday, 11 April 2015 06:10 (six years ago) link

Kids Today want to do nothing else but shoot 3s and dribble fancy. Would be surprised if any 3's record lasted all that long.

A True White Kid that can Jump (Granny Dainger), Saturday, 11 April 2015 06:23 (six years ago) link

I don't think anyone will make 270 threes at 45% for a long time, other than Steph Curry.

Matt Armstrong, Saturday, 11 April 2015 19:02 (six years ago) link

but yes someone could be healthier than curry and get more total three pointers made but I don't care about that record as much. Percentage matters!

Matt Armstrong, Saturday, 11 April 2015 19:05 (six years ago) link

what Klay is doing is totally rad and puts him in company of some of the all-time greats, but Curry is just beyond all historical norms in an unusual way for a sport as old as basketball.

#wegonnabechampionship (Spottie), Saturday, 11 April 2015 19:51 (six years ago) link

I think he's one of the most underrated players of the past 15 years or so. Underrated dunk contest champion too.

Matt Armstrong, Saturday, 11 April 2015 20:07 (six years ago) link

Kinda wild that Korver's best season there was ten years ago.

polyphonic, Saturday, 11 April 2015 20:22 (six years ago) link

this is still his best season tho, 49% and all. Sucks he couldn't hold on to 50+.

Matt Armstrong, Saturday, 11 April 2015 20:30 (six years ago) link

if you sort by percentage there the only guy close is Glen Rice with that BS short 3pt line.

Matt Armstrong, Saturday, 11 April 2015 20:31 (six years ago) link

I genuinely do not remember George McCloud.

polyphonic, Saturday, 11 April 2015 20:39 (six years ago) link

i remember him but the 1989 nba draft came at the height of my bball fandom as a kid so i remember those prospects way more than i should. was genuinely convinced sherman douglas was going to be a future all star.

balls, Saturday, 11 April 2015 20:44 (six years ago) link

I'm sure I saw him play a lot. Not ringing a bell though.

polyphonic, Saturday, 11 April 2015 20:46 (six years ago) link

I watched a Twolves-Nuggets game and a guy fell on McCloud, and the announcer said "hey, you, get off of McCloud!" Main George McCloud memory for me.

Matt Armstrong, Saturday, 11 April 2015 21:03 (six years ago) link

the crazy thing about curry is how difficult the threes he take are, hes out there playing a different game than everyone else

lag∞n, Saturday, 11 April 2015 21:18 (six years ago) link

yeah, korver and allen would take difficult 3s off screens but Curry is shooting like 40% on stepbacks

Whenever I mention Curry to my wife I identify him as the NBA's most "magical" player. And this from a Blazer fan who has watched the amazing fabulous career of Dame Lillard. It's a bit like watching the Clyde Drexler years, when Jordan was just enough better to throw shade on Drexler, who otherwise was easily an all time Top 20 player.

ok, i know i am maybe going to sound a bit hyperbolic when i say this, but: that clip of Steph hitting 105 threes in a row ... i'm trying to decide if that is the most amazing video footage of a human accomplishment i have ever seen? i'm not talking sports, i'm talking anything. what compares? this is a serious question.

alpine static, Monday, 28 December 2020 09:14 (three months ago) link

Obligatory "We talkin bout practice"... but yes, it is incredibly awesome to watch the literal best humanity has ever produced at a specific activity, in the zone, doing their thing better than anyone ever has like that. Wish Kerr would quit the foolish motion "offense" he's trying to run for scrubs like Andrew Wiggins and Oubre, and for once unleash Curry in full offensive engine ball hog mode for a whole season like D'Antoni has been doing with Harden for the past couple of years.

it’s incredible, and tom tango did some kind of nerd analysis on twitter where he suggested his true 3pt rate was 92% or something. I don’t think I’ve mentioned this on ILH but a friend of mine who trained in residency with me for a bit is the world record holder for 3 pointers made in 24 hours, and he hit 75% over the course of the day, and told me that before fatigue really set in over the last few hours he was hitting >90%

as far as just hitting practice threes there are prob a bunch of people who can do what steph did in that video, apparently the celtics old equipment manager for years would beat players regularly in 3pt competitions, in fact having a lanky nba body makes shooting harder

when i went to basketball camp at age 10 or so they had a guy come talk to us and he was one of these flawless open gym shooter types, took maybe 150-200 shots over the course of an hour and you could count the misses on one hand.

call all destroyer, Monday, 28 December 2020 16:19 (three months ago) link

ok, you all think this is more achievable than i do/did, which is totally fine. maybe i'm overestimating it slightly. like, if my 8-year-old came to me a week ago and asked me one of his kid-type questions - i.e. could anyone ever hit 100 NBA three-pointers in a row? - i would've told him of course anything is possible, and maybe someday someone will do that, but ... well, no, not really. even wide open practice threes, i guess i would've thought 90ish % is near the top of what's humanly possible. that's a pretty long shot!

i guess this is why Steph is ... good. :)
