Warriors star Stephen Curry sets insane NBA record in only 58 games
Another game, another 3-point record by Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry. On Tuesday against the New Orleans Pelicans, Curry became the fastest player in history to reach 300 3-pointers in one season.
Per Bleacher Report, Curry needed just 58 games to drain 300 3-pointers. While it’s a little-known record, it shows once again why Curry is the greatest shooter of all time. It’s becoming redundant at this point, but no one can stop Curry from breaking or forging new 3-point related records.

One supporter believes that if the 2020-21 NBA season was your normal 82-game season, then Stephen Curry would likely break his own record of 402 3-pointers. But alas, the pandemic has shortened the year to just 72 games. Clearly though, this has not stopped the Warriors guard from swishing the net.
Imagine he had 82 games… he’d break his 2016 record😭

One hater tried to nitpick by saying that Curry is a volume shooter, which is the reason why he knocks all those 3-pointers. However, one Warriors fan was quick to defend the two-time MVP. Yes, Curry is a volume 3-point shooter, averaging 12.3 shots from deep this season, but he’s draining 5.2 per game which makes it an impressive 42.7 percent from downtown. For his career, he’s at 43.4 percent, which currently ranks sixth all-time.
Everybody can’t do it

It’s widely expected that one day, Curry will be the number one all-time in 3-pointers made. On his way to taking the crown, fans should expect the Warriors’ baby-faced assassin to create and break more shooting records. We should never take it for granted, though. For all we know, there might never be someone like Curry.
