Stephen Curry is coming off one of the greatest seasons of his NBA career in the 2020-21 campaign. The Golden State Warriors superstar once again lit up the league with his three-point shooting and grabbed the second scoring title of his NBA career.


The veteran also signed a big four-year contract extension with the Warriors, worth $215 million, to remain with the franchise until the 2025-26 NBA season.



After effectively missing the NBA Playoffs last season with their loss in the Play-In tournament, Stephen Curry and the Warriors will look to put up a postseason run in the upcoming campaign.


Milestones Stephen Curry could reach in the 2021-22 NBA season

Heading towards the 2021-22 NBA season, the Warriors are expected to have Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson together on their backcourt at some point in the second part of the season. Thompson should be returning from his two-year absence and should help the team in the late stages of the season if he remains the solid player he's been throughout his career.

Whether they can put up a massive collective performance in the 2021-22 NBA season remains to be seen. Regardless, Stephen Curry might certainly be looking at another historic individual season.



In this article, we will give you five records that Stephen Curry can break in the upcoming NBA season with the Golden State Warriors.

First player to lead the NBA in free-throw percentage five times in the 21st century.

Stephen Curry has already led the NBA in free-throw percentages in four different seasons since his illustrious career began in 2009. Curry shot 91.6% from the foul line in the 2020-21 NBA season, finishing fifth in the league.

The 33-year-old is currently tied for fourth place with Larry Bird for leading the NBA in free-throw shooting percentage in the most seasons (four). The players above Curry and Bird are Bill Sharman (seven times), Rick Barry (six) and Reggie Miller (five).

Three of Miller's three seasons leading the NBA in FT percentage came in the 21st century, but Curry already leads that particular table with four.

He could become the fourth player in NBA history to lead the NBA in free-throw percentage five times, and he would be the first to do so in the 21st century. Curry is the all-time leader in FT percentage with 90.69%. We can definitely trust him to lead the league in that department again.

Stephen Curry could become the Golden State Warriors' all-time leader in steals.



The Golden State Warriors' franchise has had some extraordinary players in its history. This includes Wilt Chamberlain, Paul Arizin, Neil Johnston, Rick Barry, Chris Mullin, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green and even Kevin Durant for a short time.

Some of those players were members of the franchise for several seasons, but Curry has eclipsed many of them in multiple departments in franchise history already. He now enters the 2021-22 NBA season second in career steals in Warriors history with 1,282, behind Mullin's 1,360.

Curry is 78 steals behind Mullin, and if he has a similar season to last year in that regard (he had 77 steals) he should be close to surpassing him near the end of the upcoming campaign.

Stephen Curry has led the NBA in steals per game once in his career. Although he is not a great one-on-one defender, he is alert and focused enough to create some turnovers to rivals by playing passing lanes and having active hands.

Stephen Curry could become the third member to record multiple seasons with a 50-40-90 shooting split.

Stephen Curry is already one of nine players in NBA history to have a season with at least a 50% efficiency from the field, 40% from the three-point line, and 90% from the free-throw line.

In the 2020-21 NBA season, Stephen Curry averaged 32 points per game (career-best) and did so with a 48/42/91 shooting split. He got close to having his second 50/40/90 season, with the first one coming in his unanimous MVP-winning season (2015-16).



That year, he achieved the feat while averaging 30.1 points per game, the highest for any 50/40/90 season in league history. However, he has not repeated the feat since, and will look to do so in the upcoming season. This would mean he could join Steve Nash (four times) and Larry Bird (twice, consecutively between the 1985-86 and 1986-87 seasons) as the only players to do so more than once.


He could become the Golden State Warriors' all-time leader in games played

Stephen Curry already owns some big franchise records with the Golden State Warriors. Obviously, he has played his entire NBA career with the team that drafted him in the 2009 NBA Draft and has already surpassed Wilt Chamberlain for most points scored in franchise history. Curry has also moved ahead of Guy Rodgers for most assists in franchise history.

Now, he has the chance to become the player with the most games played for the Warriors organization. Curry has played 762 games with the Golden State Warriors (regular season) and is currently within striking distance of Chris Mullin's record of 807 games.


He could become the NBA's all-time leader in three-point field goals

This one is not a shocker. If you look at the top three leaders in three-point field goals made in NBA history, something will surely jump out at you. While the top three include three of the greatest shooters in league history, Ray Allen (all-time leader) and Reggie Miller (third-best) played 1,300 and 1,389 career games, respectively.


However, second on the list is Stephen Curry with 2,832 career three-pointers in only 762 career regular-season games. Now only 141 threes behind Ray Allen's tally, Curry could definitely surpass the all-time great in the 2021-22 NBA season and set a new record.

If we judge by his total of threes made in the last few years (he made 337 last year), Stephen Curry could even become the first player ever to hit 3,000 career three-pointers in league history. We would certainly not bet against it.
