The Golden State Warriors may have struggled to win games last season but no one can ever disrespect Stephen Curry and not accept the way he changed the game.
This campaign Curry had something to prove, and he has reached an important milestone, which people knew it was only a matter of time.
With a catch-and-shoot corner 3, Stephen Curry has passed Hall of Famer Reggie Miller for second place on the NBA's all-time 3-pointers made list.

Curry is seeking Ray Allen's 2,973 career 3s, and according to the NBA, at Curry’s current 3-point pace (4.1 3PM per game), he would need just over 100 games to catch Allen.
“That’s pretty dope,” Curry said.. “It was pretty special. Something I’ve been looking forward to for a very long time.”
Over the past six seasons, Curry has averaged at least 9.8 3-point attempts per game each year and has three seasons averaging at least 11 3s per game.
His 43.3% career 3-point percentage ranks seventh all-time and leads all players ranked in the top 200 in 3-pointers made.
