Curry, who came into the NBA in 2009, is often regarded as one of the best point guards of all-time. Not only is he a great player but he is also a revolutionary player. His style changed the way teams play basketball.
Building a team around Curry, the Golden State Warriors introduced a whole new perspective to the game. Tacticians began to realize the importance of three-point shooting and started building more plays for open looks from beyond the arc.

Curry has made the third most number of three-pointers in the NBA. Four seasons into his NBA career, Curry broke the record for the most number of the three-pointers made in a regular season with 272. As the team started playing more around his three-point shooting, he went on to break his own record twice. In the 2015/16 regular season, Curry scored a staggering 1206 points from beyond the arc which remains a record.
