Steph Curry passes Kobe on career 3-pointers list, but here’s the mind-blowing part

Stephen Curry makes a lot of threes, and on Thursday night he tied and then passed Kobe Bryant for No. 11 on the all-time list.

Here’s the mind-blowing part: Curry could miss 1,375 threes in a row and have the same shooting percentage as Kobe.

Bryant made 1,827 of 5,546, or 32.9 percent, in his 20-year career. Curry, at the time he passed Kobe, had made 1,828 of 4,174, or 43.8 percent, in his eight-year career. He’s two shy of tying Chauncey Billups for 10th on the list.

Also mind-blowing: Steph has done it in 555 games; Bryant played 1,346 games, Billups 1,043. Just goes to show what a crazy, three-happy era it is, and how Curry is the king of this era.

But right now, Curry’s on his way to missing those 1,375 straight threes: He missed his last five attempts in Thursday’s 94-87 loss at Chicago, finishing 2 of 11 and making him 4 for 31 in his past three games.
