Steph joins the top-3 already and he’s only 30 👀

Since being drafted seventh overall in 2009, Curry has been the leader in the transformation of the NBA into a three-point league. Not only did he lead the league in three-pointers for five straight seasons (2012-17), but he owns four of the top five single-season performances from beyond the arc, including the top three spots. He is the only player in NBA history to hit 300 triples in a season—and he has done so twice. 

The 402 three-pointers he drained in 2015-16 remain an NBA record.

Since his breakout his 2012-13 campaign, Curry has made 200-plus three-pointers in each of the past six seasons. He is well on his way to doing so this season, even having been sidelined early on this season by a groin injury. The 30-year-old entered Friday ranked second in the league with 151 treys despite appearing in just 30 games.

If the five-time All-Star stays healthy, he is on pace to finish the season with approximately 357 three-pointers. That would not be enough to catch Miller this season, but it would put Curry in position to move into second during 2019-20. Curry could also potentially catch Allen next season, but as he sits nearly 700 makes behind, the 2020-21 season appears to be a more realistic target.

But with Curry’s shooting, you never know.
