Steph Curry will likely break Ray Allen's record for the most three-point field goals in NBA history in his next few games. The 33-year-old is just 10 threes away from achieving this milestone.
"Steph Curry's 3-point record will 100% be broken, and from the time he's done playing, it will probably only take someone five to six years more to break it," said Draymond Green. "Reason being, Trae Young comes into the NBA, attempting probably six or seven 3-pointers a game. Donovan Mitchell comes into the NBA, attempting probably six or seven 3-pointers a game. Steph Curry came into the NBA, attempting two 3-pointers a game. It's a totally different ball game. A large part due to Steph Curry and Klay Thompson."
Draymond Green doesn't seem too far from his judgment, considering how players like Trae Young and Donovan Mitchell have straight away adapted to three-point shooting.
As a matter of fact, Mitchell recently became the second-fastest player to record 800 three-point field goals in the NBA. He now has 804 threes to his name across 302 games.

Meanwhile, Curry, who is closer than ever to breaking Allen's record, is also on track to win his third scoring title and third MVP award. This has been a comeback season for him of sorts, considering the underwhelming campaign he had last year.
Steph Curry and the Golden State Warriors have done an excellent job of sustaining their good start. They are expected to carry on in the same vein throughout this campaign.
The Dubs will also soon be bolstered by the return of sharpshooter Klay Thompson. He has been on the sidelines for two straight seasons due to multiple long-term injuries.
