Warriors superstar Steph Curry, has broken yet another record and rewrites history in the basketball world after making franchise history in his performance against Oklahoma City Thunder.
During the match between Golden State and OKC Thunder, the star player made history by becoming Golden State’s all-time leader in field goals overtaking Wilt Chamberlain’s record as Golden State’s all-time scorer.
Curry, who is currently the all-time record holder in three-pointers made, reached a total of 7,217 made field goals in the entirety of his career with the NBA during his 38-point effort against OKC.
“It’s special. I think anyone who breaks a Wilt Chamberlain record feels a certain type of way because there are certain ones that no one is ever going to touch. I’m definitely blessed to represent the franchise for 14 years. It’s pretty cool. I’m definitely one to celebrate,” said Curry in a post game interview.
The point guard averaged 38 points, 12 assists and 8 rebounds in the match giving his team the much deserved lead against Thunder.
Not only does Steph have the most three-pointers in NBA history, he has also tied the record for the most half-court makes in NBA history.
Breaking almost every record in his path, Steph is also close to breaking legendary player, Allen Iverson’s record in assists. Iverson finished his career with 5,624 assists over a total of 914 games. With only 7 assists left to beat that record, Steph is expected to add to his 5,617 overall assists in the next Warriors game.
Still, there’s a long way to go for Curry as far as the current season is concerned and Warriors fans hope the series of consecutive wins could get them on top of the western conference and to the playoffs.
