Stephen Curry Hilariously Reveals 3 Things That NBA Players Never Do: "We Never Travel, We Never Fouled Anybody, And We Never Want To Come Out Of The Game."

Stephen Curry is undoubtedly the greatest shooter of all time, no matter what his haters might say. He has shattered a lot of 3PT records, won championships, and has achieved a host of individual accolades as well.

During the Warriors game against the Nuggets, Stephen Curry reached the 3000 3PT made milestone for the regular season. It is clear that a lot of work went into achieving that, and Stephen Curry wasn't a player that was projected to be a superstar when he was drafted. 

Stephen Curry's shooting ability is what sets him apart from others. Recently, Curry has made a statement on the "art of shooting the basketball" and claimed that "you have to reimagine" how you approach shooting and "figure out a way to keep elevating your skillset".

My love for just shooting the basketball has always been a part of me as a basketball player. The interesting part is in the way you have to reimagine how you approach the art of shooting. You have to figure out a way to keep elevating your skillset. Especially with shooting.

Over the course of the last 4 or 5 years developed a good workout and a good kind of method with my assistant coaches that I truly rely on.

I know I’ve been blessed with a certain skill set but the work that goes into it is something that I’ve pride myself on because it’s what has set me apart

There is no doubt that there are a lot of great shooters in the NBA that can knock down 3PT shots at a high rate. But Stephen Curry is unique because can knock down a variety of 3PT shots of varying difficulty, off the dribble or off the catch. Sometimes even from half-court. He is a generational talent, and it's clear that he has mastered the art of shooting.

One of the most underrated ways in which Stephen Curry has impacted the game of basketball is by giving others a way they can thrive in the league. Stephen Curry has shown a lot of smaller guards a way that they can succeed and has given them a chance. Perhaps in the future, we'll see another smaller guard that's as influential as Stephen Curry, but as of now that seems unlikely.
