Stephen Curry continues to etch his name into the history books. He becomes the first player ever to score 10,000 points off of 3-point field goals alone.

Read that again, you might not have registered the impact of the stat line. Stephen Curry’s career tally of points includes 10,000 from just 3-pointers! For context, there are only 56 players with more than 10,000 points who are also active in the NBA.

Curry’s 3301 3-point make of his career dragged him through the 10,000 mark with ease. He now has 21,338 points in his career and is it really surprising to see the greatest shooter of all time have nearly half his points tally come from threes?
