I believe Stephen curry will be the greatest 3 point shooter of all time. Before you call me crazy hear me out. If you compare Curry's first four years to Allen's, curry has left Allen in the dust. Curry also has a chance to break rays most 3 pointers in a season.

He has a great chance as long as health is on his side.

Yeah truthfully I don't see his ankle holding up. He reinjures it every 2 weeks, did again tonight.

If he can stay healthy then may be. It will take a long career for him to get past Allen.

He won't be able to accomplish the longevity aspect, but efficiency-wise he will.

probably this, although I hope he can stay healthy.

His performance tonight was the first time someone has had 35 points and 8 assists on 72% shooting in under 32 minutes since Larry Bird almost 30 years ago. Too bad Cartier Martin had to ruin it for him by throwing his *** to the ground. His ankle has been holding up well and Steph said that that this one is not too bad and that he might even play against the Lakers. I'm crossing my fingers that he stays relatively healthy throughout his prime but more ankle injuries in the future is inevitable for Steph. We'll see what happens.

Yet another insignificant superlative post. wait until his career is over, he has a long way to go.

People, take notice... Curry is developing into one of the NBAs best players... Since the All-Star break, he's averaging 26.1 points, and shooting 8.2 3's per game at 48.1% accuracy... Averaging 7 apg in March... Steph is tearing it up.

his 4 year stretch has perhaps been the best 4 year stretch ever in terms of 3 point shooting.


so he's certainly got a shot.

the point of this thread is to decide if he will be the greatest ever. how is that an insignificant discussion? :laugh2:

Maybe not all time but also look at Kyrie Irving and what he's doing at a young age.

Just saw this: He averages 2 less threes per game than the entire T-Wolves team - on 10.7 less attempts.

And yes, Steph is the best shooter ever. Not just 3pt.

Among point guards...

2nd in scoring
14th in assists
12th in fg %
12th in steals
5th in rebounds
12th in double doubles
1st in free throw %
1st in 3pt %
12th in turnovers

Steph is just balling out and consistently improving... Since the all star break, he's improved on a majority of his stats...

I don't see his ankles allowing him to achieve that.
I need to see at least a healthy season from him first.

Last year was the only time he missed significant action, and it was a conscious decision to keep him out for the majority of it. He's only missed 14 games total the other 3 seasons. There's no anomaly in a 3.5-4 year sample set. He's #3 in career FT% and #2 in career 3pt% (on a non-comparable amount of attempts per game than Steve Kerr at #1, also doing it from a deeper 3pt line than Kerr had his best years at).

That said, ankles are a clear worry, but it does not change the fact that he could retire today and he'd still have a better shot than anyone else who's done it.

I agree. For him to be right there with Kerr in terms of percentage while shooting with a significantly higher degree of difficulty ... I mean this guy is not just spotting up and getting kick-outs. It's pull-ups, off screens, in transition, iso, it doesn't matter. Fun as hell to watch. His overall game has caught up as well. He deserves to be mentioned as a top 5 PG at this point and if you could guarantee me a healthy career I'd take him over Westy.

Idk, I think if the 3pt line was around during Pistol Pete's time, no one would compare.

The guy would have average 57 ppg in college if the 3 pt line was around then(someone actually went through and checked).
