Warriors legend Stephen Curry’s shooting stats are better than Kobe Bryant, Michael Jordan, and Larry Bird.

The addition of the three-point line irrevocably altered the game of basketball. However, the threat was introduced and did not wholly reach clubs until Stephen Curry arrived. Stephen Curry has caused teams to reassess their approach to offense and defense and transformed the way players think about scoring.

Dirk: 49.6 2P%

With his 4th championship, analysts are debating whether or not Steph is one of the top ten players of all time. But there is no debate stating that Steph is the best shooter the game has ever seen. However, players like Jordan, Hakeem, and Kobe are known for their mid-range games. But it seems Chef Curry is better than them at it. Curry has shot 52% for two points throughout his career, which is higher than many game legends.

Jordan won 6 championships with the Bulls in the 90s, Kobe won 5 with the Lakers, and James has four with three different teams. At the same time, Steph won 4 with the Warriors.

Every team shoots more threes, and we see college kids making threes from the logo.
