Is Steph Curry having the best season of his career?

Let’s start with this: Steph Curry just passed Ray Allen for the top-spot of 3-pointers in his career. Curry got 2,977 3-pointers in 789 games, with an average of about 4 per game. Ray Allen got his career in 1,300 games. That means Curry was able to set a new record and surpass Allen even with 511 less games. He's officially the greatest shooter of all time according to the record books.

Curry also had an impressive Christmas day game against the Phoenix Suns. The Golden State Warriors were able to win against the Phoenix Suns on Christmas day and Steph Curry ended the game with 33 points, being a career high for him after saying he never enjoyed playing on Christmas day because he'd always had underwhelming performances.

Steph Curry is not only having a great season shooting wise while averaging a 28.3 points per game, but he's also boosted his defense. Curry has had relatively quiet seasons defensively in his previous years, but this season he's ranked in the top 20 in the league for steals and deflections.

Lastly, Curry’s physique this season is unlike anything we've ever seen from him. The skinny guy of previous seasons is now more muscular and powerful than ever, with reports saying he’s gained 15 pounds since starting in the league with a renewed focus on gaining his strength.
