Stephen Curry broke his own NBA record for most made 3-pointers in a season during that insane game against the Oklahoma City Thunder on Saturday night. This is the 4th consecutive season that Curry will lead the league in both threes made and attempted. To help put his unprecedented steak in perspective, a very nice and talent person from the NBA subreddit made this bar graph showing all previous league-leaders all the way back to the 1979-1980 season.
Hard to believe the 3-pointer is only 36 years old. It’s like somebody saw Dell Curry shooting a basketball in high school and realized, “Hey, he might have a kid someday. If and when he does, we’re going to want a system in place that will blow people’s minds.” And the 3-pointer was born. Then a few years later Stephen Curry was born. Then a couple decades after that this craziness started happening.
