At 30, Curry is already an all-time great.

At 30, Curry is already an all-time great.

The ultimate player of this era, is undoubtedly Stephen Curry. We are seeing basketball evolve right before our eyes, and he is the wizard who revolutionized the game with his immaculate quick release off his deep three pointers as well as finishing at the rim amidst body contact.

Averaging 33 points this season, Curry is on the way to the scoring title. The only person who can stop him – his own coach Steve Kerr and himself. Many a times, heading into the fourth quarter when the Warriors have a huge 20-30 point lead, it is a common strategy for Kerr to let his stars rest. The tendency for the Warriors to share the ball on the floor and Curry’s willingness to pass might abstain him from the title.

“His willingness to sacrifice for KD is one of the great stories in history.” said Scotty Pippen, perhaps reminiscing his time with MJ on the Bulls.

Just nine games into the season, Curry has already dropped 55 3-pointers, which is just two shy of Oklahoma City Thunder’s (57) team total 3-point made and six shy of the Cleveland Cavaliers and the San Antonio Spurs (61).

A surprise statistic for most people are the second in list of 3-points made, the Milwaukee Bucks. The Bucks coach Mike Budenholzer has gotten the team to shoot an average of 39 threes a game, compared to under former coach Jason Kidd where they shot only 24.
