Stephen Curry graced the court on Wednesday night and pushed his career stats into new heights. Not only did Stephen set the League all time record of 402 three-pointers in a single season but he and the Warriors ended the game 125-104 for their 73rd game victory over the Memphis Grizzlies. Definitely an historical night.
Check out all of Stephen’s 402 Three-pointers for this season and his thoughts just hours before the game.
Here’s a segment of the article, read the complete article on USA Today:
“I was watching some show where they were talking about Kobe’s last game,” the 27-year-old Curry told USA TODAY Sports. “And (they talked about) the fans who were my age, or a little younger, who didn’t get to see (Michael) Jordan play much but they saw Kobe play his whole career. … That was like passing the torch to him, (or) obviously LeBron (James) or whatever.”
The epiphany, you see, is that the torch is in his hands right now.
“For the youth that are watching today’s game and where it is, that would be something very special, in 15 or 20 years, (to) hear stories of kids growing up watching me play and being inspired by what I do on the floor, and how I play the game and what not,” Curry continued. “I have certain guys who I looked up to. Jordan, Kobe, those guys. Passing that on to doing my part to kind of keep that influence of basketball where it should be is kind of why I play the game.”
