At just the age of 26, Steph Curry can now add himself to a special list, in becoming the 74th player in NBA history to make 1,000 career three-pointers.
Curry, who also carries the record for most three-pointers in a season, achieved the mark during Wednesday’s game against the Indiana Pacers. What’s astonishing about this accomplishment is it only took Curry 369 games to do, which is 88 fewer than second-place Dennis Scott.
It’s truly a remarkable feat for Curry, as he has had numerous injuries during his six-year NBA career, which included a 26 game season during the 2011-12 season. From 2012-15, Curry has averaged over three makes from long range per game, and has never finished a season shooting less than 42 percent from beyond the arc.
This season, Curry is only shooting 39.2 percent from three-point range.
According to a report by NBCSports.com, Curry could have stopped shooting three-pointers for than a full season and would have still made 1,000 three-point baskets faster than anyone in NBA history.
