Stephen Curry has done it, he is officially the best shooter in the history of the game of basketball. Curry broke the 3-pointer record set by Ray Allen which was 2973 made threes and Curry has surpassed him on Wednesday at the Madison Square Garden against the New York Knicks.


It looks like It runs in the family. His father Dell Curry was a downright sniper during his playing days for the Hornets and Seth Curry is doing the same for the Philadelphia.

Curry was selected as the 7th overall pick in the 2009 NBA Draft by the Golden State Warriors were was in contention for the rookie of the year accolades since his arrival in the NBA. His gameplay was recognized by then-coach Mark Jackson who modified the offense around the backcourt duo of Klay Thompson and Steph Curry. This master plan helped the duo of Curry and Thompson to probably be one of the best duos in the history of the game.


Curry changed the game of basketball. Probably now, post this achievement, he can be considered on par with Michael Jordan. The influence that Curry has boasted on the current generation of NBA players is Jordanesque and can be considered a Steph ahead of what Kobe and LeBron have done in the NBA.
