Steph Curry is on the verge of surpassing Ray Allen‘s record of three-pointers made in the regular season. Allen’s record stands at 2,973 three-points made in 1,300 appearances in the regular season. Curry stands at 2,964, with just 9 threes left to match Allen’s and 10 to surpass it.
On an ESPN show, Jalen Rose projects Steph Curry will attain set a near unbeatable record for years to come. He also stated that if anyone was to break his record, it most definitely would be the charismatic Trae Young. With the Atlanta Hawks point guard being young and talented from long-range, Rose predicts he stands a chance of attaining Curry’s height and maybe surpassing it.
“He may get 4,000 made threes, 4,000.. That’s like putting a high score up on a video game that nobody’s gonna take down, something like Stockton’s assists record. But I thought this when the Big O had the triple-double record and then Russell Westbrook came along. And I would say Steph Curry’s gonna put up the score nobody’s gonna takedown but then if somebody is, Trae Young is gonna be the guy. Because he’s young, 23, he’s played like 4 years, he shoots with unlimited range and he’s already a guy that’s averaging 25 and double-figure assist for whatever it’s worth.”
