Warriors’ Stephen Curry joins Ray Allen, Reggie Miller in historic 3-point feat
Ray Allen and Reggie Miller would agree that things are not going exactly as planned for the Golden State Warriors early in this NBA season. However, two-time league MVP and longtime Warriors point guard Stephen Curry is healthy, back from injury and is continuing to make history while most recently doing so on Sunday evening against the Chicago Bulls.
Curry has now sank 2,500 career three-pointers for the Warriors, becoming just the third player in NBA history to accomplish such a feat. The other two? Only Ray Allen and Reggie Miller, two of the best shooters that the game has ever seen. Of course, Curry was already in the same company of this tandem of all-time greats in terms of shooting prowess prior to Sunday evening’s swish against the Bulls.

The 32-year-old Curry has already done it all in terms of both personal and Warriors-related feats atop the highest level. A two-time NBA MVP, a three-time NBA Champion and a five-time Western Conference Champion, just to name a few, Curry definitely has the time and potential to pass both Allen and Miller on the aforementioned list.
Due to the rate in which NBA players are shooting three-pointers in 2020-21, thanks in-part to Curry’s presence in the league, the Warriors standout remains on a record pace and then some.
The Warriors are trying to work through noticeable roster limitations, such as the absence of Draymond Green due to injury, plus a lengthy road trip to start the season, including a Christmas Day afternoon game. The Dubs are also having to deal with the fact that Kelly Oubre, one of their notable roster acquisitions in the offseason, has missed 15 straight 3-pointers and has become borderline unplayable at the offensive end of the floor. Golden State needs a lot of pieces to come together in order to give Steph Curry the help he needs to make a run at the playoffs in this 72-game NBA season, shortened by 10 games from the normal 82.
