Stephen Curry and his Golden States Warriors are having a phenomenal season. At the moment, with 20 games remaining in the season, they’re on pace to have the greatest season in NBA history. That is they’re on pace to break the Michael Jordan’s 1995-1996 Chicago Bulls team, for the greatest regular-season record in the history of the NBA.
At the heart of this success is the sensational, Curry, who’s leading the NBA league with an average 30.7 points per game moving up from last season’s 23.8 points per game. Consequently, the fantastic player has gone on to break his record of most made 3-pointers in a season with 293 at a 51% shooting accuracy. Utterly insane!! This otherworldly performance in Curry’s game has led the Golden State Warriors team to a 54-5 record this season.
Stephen curry is one of the most praticed players in the game. He is a phenomenal shooter and player. Learning how to shoot and learning how to jump higher were essential to his success. He isn’t the tallest and if anything looks average on paper. He has proven that good things come in smaller-ish packages.
The last five games of the season have Curry pull out some incredible numbers. 33-42-51-46-33 points respectively. That’s an average of 41.6 points per game. This span has also seen him spin seven 3-pointers made per game. To put it into proper historical perspective, only seven players in the history of the NBA have averaged three 3-pointers a game for a whole season. Against Thunder, Curry went on to tie Donyell Marshall and Kobe Bryant for the most three-pointers in a single NBA game: 12 three-pointers. And he’ll probably break the record before the end of the season. He’s made the most 30-footers a season and is tied with Zach Randolph for 40-footers at three a season.
The basketball game NBA 2K16 has jumped onto the Curry hype-wagon to accolade his sort-of-ridiculous season. At the start of the season, Steph trailed Lebron’s 94 rating with a 93 rating. Shortly into the season, Curry’s score rose past Lebron’s, and he’s currently at a 98 rating just behind one player: Michael Jordan, 95-96 season. His 3-pointer rating is at a staggering, but not-so-surprising, 99. Since there are still some games left in the season Steph Curry might just end it as the greatest of all time in the video-game category.
At the moment, Steph Curry is the front runner for a second-successive MVP, and he just might get a unanimous vote. Last season Steph lost the players’ MVP award to James Harden. However, this season he might have done just enough to convince his fellow players that he’s that good.
The numbers Curry is drawing are mind-blowing. As far as pure shooting goes he’s the undisputed best. His season can only get so much better. Curry is taking on history. And, at the moment, there’s only one thing we can do. Watch him. Enjoy him. Go with the flow.
