Steph Curry became the three-point kingpin after breaking Ray Allen’s three-point record. Curry broke the record in almost half the time it took Allen to reset it in 2009.
Curry could one day find himself on the list of unbreakable sports records like Joe DiMaggio’s hit 56 game series and Cal Ripken’s 2,632 back-to-back games. Here are some reasons why Curry’s record is never broken.
Curry is the best shooter the league has ever seen
With Curry, shooting with three people looks so easy. Its range seems unlimited. The distance between Curry and the next big shooter is extremely large. Curry is still in its prime. It is only 32 years old and has many years left in the tank. Allen’s record was 2,973, Curry could easily hit 5,000, making his new record out of reach for others.
When Curry’s career is complete, his three points will be the greatest NBA record any current and future player will try to break.
