From 2014 to 2019, the Golden State Warriors were regarded as a dynasty, winning conference titles each year. In addition, he has won the championship three times in the last five years. Stephen Curry was a key player at the time who brought the honor to the team.
He not only got the GSW back into the playoffs with the help of his teammates, particularly Klay Thompson and Draymond Green. But, for the first time since 1975, they have won the championships.
STEPHEN HAS ALSO MADE AMAZING ACCOMPLISHMENTS ON HIS OWN, SOME OF WHICH ARE STILL UNBREAKABLE.
All went downhill after the 2019 season, with Kevin Durant and Klay Thomson both suffering injuries. Kevin tore his Achilles and signed with the Brooklyn Nets after tearing his Achilles. Klay Thomson ripped his ACL and had to go to rehab before being ruled out for the next two seasons.
Stephen Curry was injured in an accident and fractured his wrist, putting him out for three months. As a result, GSW finished the 2019-20 season with a league-worst 15-50 record. However, he is back in the NBA this year with an even better result.
NOT ONLY IS HE HELPING HIS TEAM KEEP THEIR PLACE FOR A CHANCE TO PLAY IN A PLAY-IN TOURNAMENT FOR THE PLAYOFFS, BUT HE’S ALSO HELPING HIS TEAM KEEP THEIR PLACE FOR A CHANCE TO PLAY IN A PLAY-IN TOURNAMENT FOR THE PLAYOFFS.
But he’s already on his way to becoming a candidate for MVP this year, and he’s breaking record after record.
Curry having a record-breaking season
Stephen seems to be aging backwards, as he is doing much better at 33 than he was at younger ages. And demonstrating to the rest of the world that he is still the best shooter of all time.
He is practically carrying his squad, which is missing Klay Thompson and features the majority of the current roster. The GSW superstar is in the midst of an incredible run of play and scoring that is unheard of for players his age.
Curry, who is 33 years old, is averaging 37.3 points per game in the 15 games he appeared in April of this year. He scores 37.3 points per game on 51.8 percent shooting from the field and 46.4 percent from beyond the arc. Similarly, he has a free-throw percentage of 90.8 percent.
He is the first player in NBA history to average 35 points per game while shooting 50/40/90 in a calendar month. Just four players 30 or older have ever averaged at least 35 points per game over the course of a month. At the age of 31 or older, no other player has ever achieved this feat.
This isn’t his only record this month; he also broke a record set by James Harden. With 82 threes, he broke Harden’s record for most threes made in a calendar month. This month, Steph hit 96 threes.

He joined Ray Allen and Reggie Miller in that game. As the only players in NBA history with more than 2,500 career three-pointers. Curry set a career high with 62 points in a 137–122 victory over the Portland Trail Blazers on January 3, 2021.
Curry made five three-pointers in a game against the Utah Jazz on January 23, 2020. Moving his career total to 2,562, passing Miller to become the second-most three-pointers made in NBA history, behind only Allen. He also surpassed Guy Rodgers as the franchise’s all-time assist leader. Then he overtook Wilt Chamberlain as the franchise’s all-time leading scorer.
STEPH SET THE FRANCHISE SCORING RECORD ON APRIL 12 WITH 53 POINTS.
Simultaneously, he scored at least 30 points in 11 straight games, breaking Kobe Bryant’s previous record for a player aged 33 or older. He also set a record for making 10 or more three-pointers in each of his 11 regular seasons. He has more records that he has made or is in the process of producing.
The Warriors are now fighting for a playoff berth in the Western Conference play-in tournament. He doesn’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon. And he’ll keep his domination going, making GSW games exciting to watch.
