The game is changing, thanks to Stephen Curry. Son of one the most premier sixth men in the league, Dell Curry, Steph has grown to show he's more than just a son of a former player. He's grown from the kid who didn't have the frame to take his skill to the next level, to the seventh overall pick in the 2009 draft, to the kid with potential and can't stay healthy, all the way to the top of the league's 3-point shooters.
After last night's 125-94 victory over the Bulls in Chicago, Curry is sitting atop the list of 3-point shooters with 196 3's in only 41 games. He's on pace to shred his own personal NBA record of 286 3's that he hit last year.
In the midst of his seventh season in the NBA, Curry has already made 1387 3-pointers. Making Ray Allen's record of 2973 seem like a gimme.
When you think of the game's greatest shooters from behind the line, you tend to think of retirees and/or record holders, but there is no way that you cannot mention Steph Curry among the likes of Ray Allen, Reggie Miller, and Larry Bird. This guy is making a mockery of his competition as he seems to be able to take 3's from the parking lot of the arena and have them find the bottom of the net. He's got some of the best dribbling skills in the game and can make something out of nothing.
There is no one more worthy of the credit for the Warriors' 39-4 start than Stephen Curry, as he has become the face of the NBA, stripping Lebron James of that title and taking off with it. Who's to say that he won't win MVP again this season and walk away with another NBA Finals trophy, tying King James with 2?
Just remember, get the ball to Steph and get the hell out of the way.
