Steph Closing in on Uncharted Territory


Golden State Warriors superstar Stephen Curry seemingly makes history every time he steps on the floor. Widely regarded as the greatest shooter of all time, the 30-year-old marksman continues to amaze with his dazzling skill set.

Steph Closing in on Terry

The next piece of history Curry is closing in on is the top spot on the all-time three-pointers made (3PM) list. On Saturday night, Curry leapfrogged Kyle Korver for fourth place on that distinguished list, and needs just three more to pass Jason Terry for sole ownership of third spot all-time.

On Friday, the Warriors will face the Chicago Bulls in a game where Curry may very well hit three or more threes to overtake Terry. To occupy such a high spot at such a young age in the NBA is very rarified territory, and Curry is in prime position to take over Reggie Miller for second place all-time at some point next season. Curry’s 2,280 3PM sit behind Terry’s 2,282, Miller’s 2,560 and Ray Allen’s penultimate 2,973.

The Chef appears destined to become the first player in NBA history to reach the uncharted 3,000 3PM mark, however, the 4,000 3PM mark is also well within reach. Curry is still just 30 years old, and as we have seen with players such as Allen, Miller, Terry and Korver, the three-point touch never leaves. After the conclusion of this season, it may only take Curry another two seasons to pass Allen. Curry, at the age of 33, will then embark on setting a new, perhaps unassailable record for the rest of his career.

The Game Has Changed

The game has certainly changed due to the skills, talents and accomplishments of these players who have dominated the game from beyond the arc. When it is all said and done, though, Curry appears destined to stand alone atop the three-point mountaintop. The records are all within reach, and the only question is ‘how far will he go?’
