Stephen Curry plays the game beautifully, according to Barkley

Curry needed only two three-pointers to break the record. Allen and Reggie Miller were at Madison Square Garden to witness this historical moment.

Charles Barkley was discussing players who go for three-pointers, saying he wants players like Curry, Klay Thompson, James Harden, and Kevin Durant. According to him, the problem with the NBA is that everyone is trying to be the three-point shooter, even though not everyone is a good three-point scorer.

In the conversation, Barkley stated that Curry’s record will never be broken. To quote Barkley:

“I think when you look at tonight, Wilt Chamberlain, 100 points, Joe DiMaggio, 56 games. This record ain’t never going to be broken! Because of this guy, at least another five years at his peak. And he’s going to set a record that nobody ever will come to again. And it’s beautiful to watch.”

On top of that, O’Neal mentioned that if Curry maintains this momentum, it will be interesting to see his performance in the upcoming games. Since Curry has more than four to five years left as a player, the record he will achieve at the end would be hard to break. 

We’d like to hear about your experience witnessing this record-breaking moment. We know it has been a long time coming for Curry’s fans.
