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 (eight 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 (eight 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 (eight years ago) link

not really if you consider percentage.

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

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

#wegonnabechampionship (Spottie), Friday, 10 April 2015 23:26 (eight 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 (eight 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 (eight 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 (eight 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 (eight 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 (eight 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.

J rich was awesome. Top 5 warrior

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

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

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

I genuinely do not remember George McCloud.

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

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

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

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

Steph Curry sinks the wild 3-point floater 🤯pic.twitter.com/Q6PdLvX7FY

— ClutchPoints (@ClutchPointsApp) November 12, 2022

im with coach nick that this should be considered a normal shot, i know personally im more accurate with the floater inside of ~17 feet and im bad at basketball, it just allows a lot more options

lag∞n, Saturday, 12 November 2022 04:57 (one year ago) link

dece

Steph Curry's last three games

*39 points on 13/22 FG, 8/15 from 3
*47 points on 17/24 FG, 7/12 from 3 (nine in final 1:53 to clinch W)
*40 points on 15/23 FG, 6/11 from 3 (10 in final 1:18 to clinch W)

He's up to 33.2 ppg on 53/44/91 shooting splits on the season

its interesting to me that the many nba players think this about kd/steph

“Kobe is Michael Jordan on steroids… Kevin Durant is 7 feet tall and can do everything Steph Curry can do… It’s Kobe 1, LeBron 2, Mike 3.” They’re all amazing. They’re all the best ever.”

if kd could do everything steph does he'd easily be the goat goat.

im a beacon of light (Spottie), Tuesday, 22 November 2022 22:32 (one year ago) link

Sure KD can do everything Steph Curry can do, but only if you define "what Curry does" as dribble, make assists, and shoot well from most parts of the floor. Can KD do those? Yup! Does KD do those at the same level? Nope! Is KD an all-time player? Yup! Does he rank above Steph? That's highly debatable, SGA, but then you put Kobe at #1, so it's obvious your judgment sucks.
