Not so long ago, talking about Steph Curry records seemed crazy. No one, not even the Golden State Warriors, ever thought that he was going to become the legend he is nowadays, especially after so many struggles with injuries early in his career.

Steph Curry records

Curry was always overlooked. Despite being the son of a great shooter in Dell Curry; Steph was never a highly-recruited prospect. He joined a small basketball program in Davidson, becoming a bit of a sensation in the NCAA but still being doubted by most NBA analysts.

The Minnesota Timberwolves even passed on him twice on the same Draft. They took Ricky Rubio and Jonny Flynn (who was out of the league shortly after) and allowed him to fall right into the Warriors’ lap. But not even they trusted him to be a generational player.

Warriors almost trade future MVP

Curry’s amazing stats at the Bay came against the franchise’s desire. In reality, they tried to trade him multiple times but other teams had doubts about his ankles. They tried to move him to the Milwaukee Bucks for Andrew Bogut but the Bucks asked for Monta Ellis instead.

Then, they tried moving him and Klay Thompson to the Charlotte Hornets to get Chris Paul, but Paul killed the deal by letting them know that he wasn’t going to re-sign with a rebuilding franchise. Looking back, that was a blessing in disguise for the Dubs.

On December 14th 2021, Curry added another record to his packed resume. He’s toppled Ray Allen‘s 2,973 three-pointers to make it Curry’s three-point record instead. That’s why today, we’re going to take a look at some of Curry’s amazing stats and what he’s been able to do in the league.

His impact on the NBA goes way beyond Curry’s career-high points or the numbers. He’s changed the game of basketball for better or worse. He’s forced defenses to pressure him across the whole court and turned the NBA into a three-point shooting league.


Curry’s career-high stats aren’t enough to discuss the influence he’s got in the game. Steph’s the only player who’s triple-teamed at mid-court. He’s also the only guy who can still knock down shots from there despite being so tightly guarded.

Stephen Curry is the ultimate underdog. In an era of extravagant superstars with a big mouth and a huge ego, he’s just a down-to-earth guy who continued to bet on himself and work on his craft to become the greatest shooter of all time.

  1. Per Durant, Hardin ALSO gets guarded at the half court line JUST AS MUCH as Curry.
    Neither get TRIPLE teamed, that’s a really DUMB claim.
