Steph Curry is the greatest shooter in NBA history. His fast-release shooting mechanism and insane range revolutionized the game of basketball. The following stats show you how dominant Curry has been throughout his NBA career.
Most 3-Pointers Made in One Season
During the 2015-16 season, Curry set an NBA record and made 402 3-pointers. That was the only time any player has made more than 400 3-pointers in one season.
Six of the Top 10 Most 3-Pointers Made Seasons
Curry personally accounts for six of the top 10 most 3-pointers made seasons in NBA history. He even owns four of the top 5 seasons ranked by 3-pointers made. James Harden is the only other player with more than one top 10 season, and he only has two.
Most Career 3-Pointers Made
Even though Curry hasn't retired yet, he's already the all-time leader in career 3-pointers made. At 3,117 3-pointers made and counting, Curry is the only NBA player to make more than 3,000 career 3-pointers. Equally impressive is how efficiently he did it. To make his 3,117 3-pointers, Curry only needed 7,290 shot attempts, resulting in a sizzling 42.8% 3-point percentage.
The Only 30-Point 50-40-90 Season
The 50-40-90 Club is very exclusive. Only nine players in NBA history have shot at least 50% in field goals, at least 40% in 3-pointers, and at least 90% in free throws in one season. Among those nine players, Steph Curry is the only one to have averaged more than 30 points per game in a season (he averaged 30.1 points in the 2015-16 season) while shooting better than 50-40-90.
