Stephen Curry

Stephen Curry today broke the all time record for most threes in a single season today with 273 beating out Ray Allen's 269.

Does anyone else think that he might be able to be the all time 3 points makes leader when his career is done if he can stay healthy?

Steph curry is the best 3

Steph curry is the best 3 point shooter in basketball history. The clippers might be the best 3pt shooting team in history. A very scary match up in the playoffs. Klay Thompson shout out LEGGOO

Yeah he has a chance. He's

Yeah he has a chance. He's the type of player that will have a very long NBA career. And he will always be amongst the leaders in three's every year. Even at the end of his career when he isn't a starter anymore, he will have a backup/specialist role ala Steve Kerr.

Steph Curry is definitely the

Steph Curry is definitely the best three point shooter off the dribble that I have ever seen. This year only 55% of his threes were assisted on. To shoot 45% while taking almost half them off the dribble just blows my mind.

This is also what makes Damian Lillard so dangerous, he doesn't shoot as well from three as Curry but he is making a very respectable 37% while only having 53% of them assisted on.

Yeah Steph can hit from anywhere, off any angle, off the catch or dribble. And it's so quick. Match that with his great handle and you've got an incredible scorer. He needs to stay healthy, but he's well on his way to breaking the record all time.

I agree with Green Crack. I

I agree with Green Crack. I think if Steph keeps this up he could go down as the greatest shooter ever. During his rookie year I use to call him the "black" Steve Nash. Steph isn't the passer Nash was/is but he is constantly improving and I think he can get there. I think he has the best chance of any current player to go 50-40-90 for more than one season. He came pretty damn close this season. I wouldn't be surprised if he does it next year or within the next two years. Steve Nash has done it four times. I think Steph can get the same if he stays healthy long enough to do it.

Durant

No love for Durant and the 50-40-90 club?

Durant accomplished it this year while shooting a high volume of shots from all three areas and scoring over 28 ppg.

Despite him being such a high volume scorer, I wouldn't rule him out doing it again. And I don't think I would say Curry has a better chance to do it more than once, if only because Curry has yet to accomplish it. As a guard, the 50% FG percentage won't be easy. He was at 45% this season.

That being said, I would agree that Curry is the best shooter in the game right now.

I said more than one season.

I said "for more than one season". Durant has accomplished it. But I think Curry can do it multiple seasons like Nash

Did you read my post?

I said,

"... I don't think I would say Curry has a better chance to do it more than once, if only because Curry has yet to accomplish it. As a guard, the 50% FG percentage won't be easy. He was at 45% this season."

My post was regarding my disagreeing about Curry having "the best chance" as you put it, to hit 50-40-90 more than once. I believe Durant has just as good a chance, having already accomplished it. He accomplished it as a high volume scorer and with a lot of defensive attention on him. And due to his position/size, he may have an easier time with the 50% FG mark.

I believe Durant deserves respect in the conversation of players who can potentially reach 50-40-90 more than once.

This is sort of a repetitive post, but you seemed to have missed the point the first time.

Either way, both are great shooters.

No i agree. I was trying to

No i agree. I was trying to edit my first post but I couldn't. My point for Curry is that he handles the ball more. Like Steve Nash. Durant plays alongside Westbrook who is a ball dominant guard. Durant has to get the ball from Westbrook in order to shoot. But Durant isn't as injury prone so you might have the edge with your argument. I just think if Curry wasn't as injury prone he would have probably accomplished it this year if not sooner. He had a 49% field goal percentage last year although his free throws were only 80%.

Good points

All good points. I definitely think Curry is the best pure shooter in the league. But for the reasons you just stated, I think Durant has an equal chance to be a repeat offender in the 50-40-90 club.

The fact that Curry hits the 3 point FG% that he does while being his teams primary ball handler is incredible. I won't be surprised whatsoever to see him hit 50-40-90 multiple times. Sorry if my last reply came off condescending in any way. I think we're in agreement.
