Many people don’t know, but Steph was born in Ohio, Cleveland. He was born in the same hospital as Lebron. His father also represented the NBA as a player, and that is where he inherited the art of playing basketball. He, alongside his younger brother Seth practiced with their father in the court. Gradually both Steph and Seth developed a liking for the game and picked up the sport. Even during his college days, Steph was regarded as a nice shooter, playing as a point guard. But nobody imagined him to become the best shooter and one of the best point guards of all time. He also has the highest success percentage in free throws.
At only 34, he leads the chart for most three-pointers scored in the league. In only his 13th season, he managed to beat Ray Allen’s record, who in his career played a lot more seasons than Curry. Still in his prime, Steph definitely has a few more seasons to give to the team. It is highly unlikely that his three-point record will ever be broken. Many experts believe that such a feat is almost impossible to break in the future. Even though the game has become more dependent on three-pointers, all thanks to Curry, it would be still extremely difficult to break his record.
