Stephen Curry Has the Second Highest 3PT% Ever
 
For his career so far. First is Steve Kerr.
Obviously, it could drop as his career goes on, but it's insane how great he's shooting at his volume (over 7 threes a game on 45% this year!!!). Has anyone ever shot this well this far into their career?
I really should watch the Warriors more, I have rarely seen Curry play.

Quick release, high release, insane accuracy. Hard to block because he gets the shot off before anyone can react.

Curry has really blossomed this year.

I am not sure but maybe .ray Allen is pretty close Curry's 7 threes a game. Especially during his Seattle years.

His mechanics are model mechanics and players who wish to have a lasting career should emulate his form. (Perfect for old man game)

He doesn't seem to have that much legs into it. At least not at regular speed.

Wow

And Steve Kerr's was inflated due to the shortened three point line for a few years (which perfectly lined up with his "prime" too).

I remember Dell was once referred to as the man with unlimited range. Watching him play I almost believed it. For Steph to be better is amazing.

Nash says the kid will break all his career records one day. Nash thinks highly of the kid. But he showboats too much for us. Sometimes he will celebrate in the middle of the game just because we took a one point lead.

In checking stephen curry's yahoo sports page for one of the first time i see he was born in Akron?


Wow, so they have two of the best nba players in the league born in that one city. And it's not even that big of a city.

Also from AKRON:

Hall of famers Gus Nate Thurmond and Gus Johnson. LeBron will obviously make the HOF, too. If Curry makes it one day, Akron will have 4 NBA HOF'ers.

He doesn't have to be.

It's still crazy.

Akron only has a population of 200,000 (New York has 8 million, LA has 4 mil, Chicago has 3 mil, etc).

Yet Akron was the birthplace of the best player in the world and the 30th best player (S. Curry...at worst) in the world. That's crazy.
