Nearly 40%? Try 43.6% at 8.2 attempts per game over a 10-year career, he'll be #1 in threes made all-time by age 32, barring injury. He's also currently 5th all-time in 3PT%. Now we've seen a bunch of great RS 3-PT shooters, but Curry's also 40.1% at 10.5 attempts per game for his Playoff career and holds the Finals record for most 3s in a series. He already has most 3s made for Playoffs Career at just age 31, already being 85 ahead of Ray Allen.

Steph Curry is the Michael Jordan of the 3-Point era.

What's Stephs fg% and 3p% in the finals when it matters most?

I'll save u the trouble of having to look it up. It's below 40% and this year as a 31 year old it was 34%. As curry gets older and further away from his prime his three point percentage will continue to decline if he ever actually gets back to the finals which I highly dought.

If we compare mj and Steph in the finals at the same age mj was actually more efficient. Yes he took alot less but he was still very efficient.

1.)

2019 Regular Season "closest defender" stats on 3-pointers


Curry





Total 3-point attempts per game:. 11.6
Attempts that are "open" (4-6 feet) or "wide open" (6+ feet):. 9.3
__________________________________________________ ___________
Percentage of attempts that are "open" or "wide open":. 80.2%

Conclusion on Curry - he needs space to shoot threes, thus hurting him in the clutch compared to good mid-range players, who don't need any room and can get the shot whenever they want




TLDR: 80% of Curry's threes are open... The league average is 89%

Common knowledge: today's spacing strategy gives defenses no chance to cover the ground (hence the open threes)




2.)


Curry is bad at contested mid-range:

2019 Playoffs




https://stats.nba.com/player/201939/...nType=Playoffs


TLDR:. Curry shoots 29% on tightly contested two's outside of 10 feet, and 39% on contested - so he shoots bad at contested mid-range, which means he's bad at contested jumpers overall because 80% of his threes are open (see #1 above).

So MJ is a better jumpshooter than Curry because he's better at contested jumpers, while being the goat mid-range shooter..

and MJ shot 40% on threes on 4 attempts during a championship run and in the Finals without practicing threes like today's player, so just naturally because his form is goat and he has goat fundamentals
