Does volume matter?

Seth Curry’s percentage often gets knocked because of the lack of attempts. For his career, he has hit 437 threes. Curry has attempted 986. That is a large enough sample size.

Consider this, Steve Kerr only attempted 1,599 3-pointers in his 15 year NBA career. Curry will pass that over this four-year deal with the Mavericks.

Many consider Stephen Curry one of the greatest shooters in NBA history. He has topped five 3-pointers made per game for his career in two different seasons. Seth’s older brother is also hitting 43.5 percent during his time with the Golden State Warriors over 5,739 attempts.

Must Read. Who will lead the team in scoring going forward?

Steph has hit a ton of clutch jumpers too. That could be the case for making the Warriors guard the best ever. His three rings speak for themselves.

There are plenty of fantastic shooters in NBA history. Recent marksmen like Ray Allen and Kyle Korver deserve consideration for the title. Others such as Steve Nash, Hubert Davis, and Drazen Petrovic are also in contention.

Seth Curry has a higher 3-point percentage than all of those men, and that number should only improve playing next to Luka Doncic in Dallas over the next three seasons. Here is why it will only get better.

Next: Improving?
