Stephen Curry is arguably the greatest shooter of all-time. He has transcended the game of basketball and changed the way people looked at the game, forever. Because of his success taking three-pointers, the rest of the league started putting more emphasis on taking threes.
With his ridiculous shooting, he can change the course of the game single-handedly and is a nightmare to guard for the defenders because of his ability to knock down threes off-the-dribble with high precision.
