  The complete list of second-generation NBA players, from Stephen Curry to Kenyon Martin Jr. Led by Stephen Curry, the Warriors alone have four players whose father's enjoyed a career in the NBA.Such can be said of the 20-plus current NBA players whose fathers each enjoyed time in the league as well. Of course, two-time league MVP Stephen Curry is the most accomplished second-generation player in the game right now, but he is actually one of four second-generation players on the Warriors roster this season.

Such is the lure of Stephen Curry.

When he does something, everyone tunes in.

For those who haven’t seen what he did Saturday night, here it is. It’s a tradition he continued from the Golden State Warriors’ former home, Oracle Arena, and brought to the Chase Center. At Oracle, it was a shot from the tunnel at the end of his pregame shooting session. At Chase, it’s been from a variety of places, most recently a corner of the stands. A security guard fires him a ball and Curry lets it fly.

Ben Simmons on the Warriors? Why Golden State should and shouldn't pursue trade for 76ers star

  Ben Simmons on the Warriors? Why Golden State should and shouldn't pursue trade for 76ers star How would Ben Simmons fit on the Warriors? Would a win-now move make them clear championship favorites?With an NBA-best 15-2 record heading into Wednesday's clash with the 76ers, Golden State looks every bit like the dominant franchise that reached five straight Finals from 2015 to 2019. The hot start has quieted most of the chatter about the Warriors potentially making a major win-now move. One of the names that surfaces from time to time? Ben Simmons.

Curry has 2,958 after making seven more in Monday’s win over the Magic. Allen retired with 2,973. Fans in Philadelphia on Saturday or Indiana on Monday are probably going to see a treat — some history, when Curry becomes the 3-point king. But Curry is must - see TV anytime , even when he’s just taking shots from the stands before games.

Swish.

“He’s got range,” San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich said.

Curry’s got it all. Range, game, rings, charm, skills, a sparkling resume, a great organization, a great arena, a great fan base and a great team again. He’s funny. He’s one of the best interviews in the NBA. He’s made birdies at Augusta National. He went to the Ryder Cup as a fan and actually thought nobody would notice.

He’ll be 34 by the time the season ends, is averaging just under 28 points per game and is playing like he has a very real chance of winning the NBA’s MVP award this season.

The Golden State Warriors, along with Phoenix, are an NBA-best 20-4 after beating the Orlando Magic on Monday night. They’ve been playing as well as any team in the league. They’re a legitimate title contender. And in a few days, Curry will overtake Ray Allen as the career leader in 3-pointers made.

Is this shaping up to be Stephen Curry's best season ever?

  Is this shaping up to be Stephen Curry's best season ever? Stephen Curry has been phenomenal to start the 2021-22 NBA season, but how does this season stack up against 2015-16 when he was the unanimous MVP?If there was an MVP handed out for the first quarter of the season, the trophy would definitely have Curry's name etched onto it.

Analysis : Steph still must - see TV , anytime cameras are near SFGate. Everyone remembers Steph Curry 's game-winner in OKC.

Curry has 2,958 after making seven in Monday's win over the Magic. Allen retired with 2,973. Fans in Philadelphia on Saturday or Indiana on Monday are probably going to see a treat — some history, when Curry becomes the 3-point king.

There are some arguments that never will be settled. Wilt Chamberlain or Bill Russell, LeBron James or Michael Jordan, Phil Jackson or Pat Riley, Celtics dynasty or Bulls dynasty.

In the best shooter argument, though, there really is no debate.


Gallery: The best NBA players of all time (Espresso)

a person holding a basketball: Despite his rather egotistical personality, Lebron James remains one of the best players in NBA history. During the 2010s alone, “King James” was voted his team’s most valuable player four times and was named playoff MVP three times while leading his team to an equal number of championship wins.During the same period, James was a nine-time starter on the All-Star Team and has participated in ten NBA All-Star Games. He also took home an Olympic gold medal. James is one of only four players in the history of the NBA to have scored over 32,400 career points.

It’s Curry. Case closed. The dunk used to be the coolest thing in basketball. It's the 3 now and Curry is why.

“There’s never been anyone like him,” Warriors coach Steve Kerr said.

If the NBA had a likeability metric, Curry would be the leader there, too. He’s 6-foot-3 and 198 pounds, not 6-foot-10 and 275. And although he’s put on some noticeable muscle in recent years, he still kind of has the everyman vibe to him. He plays the way that most people on playgrounds think they play: great ballhandling, great shooting, except he’s actually a great ballhandler and great shooter, and the guy on the playground makes the occasional deep 3 and gets to pretend.

Four pressing questions facing Klay Thompson and Warriors ahead of sharpshooter's return

  Four pressing questions facing Klay Thompson and Warriors ahead of sharpshooter's return The Warriors have one of the best records in the NBA without Klay Thompson. How good are they going to be when he returns?A whole lot richer.

Steph Curry ’s Unanimous Media Signs Massive Talent Deal With Comcast NBCUniversal. The initiative has been running for over 30 years and will see Curry will sit down with multiplatinum artist, activist and EGOT winner John Legend to The Unanimous Media leadership team includes executive vice president of TV Jenelle Lindsay, film and feature documentaries head Brian Tetsuro Must Read.

Curry ran beyond the arc for what could have been an open corner three, and his defender immediately began sprinting in that direction, only to find himself in no-man’s land when Steph simply ran behind his back for an easy layup. This is a really cool article, thank you for sharing. Steph is easily the most technical of any superstar I've ever seen . The level of thought an preparation he puts into his game is legendary. And it shows in everything he does on the court, I've never seen anybody create clean, high percentage looks for himself more consistently, other than probably Durant and Jordan.

“I think he was still, for some reason, under the radar in the beginning,” Popovich said. “He’s kind of slight stature. At the time, he wasn’t that strong. He always looked like he was 17 or 18 years old. You didn’t look at him and say ‘Hey, he’s going to do this.’ But as the years went by and you realized he’s one of the greatest shooters you’ve ever seen, it became apparent that everything record-wise would be available to him.”

Popovich is right. Just about every 3-point record in existence is owned by Curry, or soon will be.

Nobody has made more 3-pointers for one team, or in one season, or in one postseason. He made 30 3s against Minnesota in the 2018-19 season, the most anyone has made against one opponent in a season. He has made 163 against the Clippers, another record for the most all time against an opponent. He already has passed Allen for the most 3s all time, when including playoffs. The only record he hasn’t gotten is most 3s in a game; his best is 13, the record is 14, set by Klay Thompson.

“He’s one of the greatest players in the history of the game,” Kerr said. “And he’s the greatest 3-point shooter of all time.”

Nikola Jokic, Seth Curry headline SN's NBA All-Underpaid Team

  Nikola Jokic, Seth Curry headline SN's NBA All-Underpaid Team One member of the Sporting News staff created a team made up of six players — a starting five and sixth man — who are outplaying their current contracts.Today, we're going to show some love to a group of players who are doing just that so far this season with the All-Underpaid Team.

This is what should scare NBA teams to their core about this Warriors team. Curry is as good as ever, the team is rolling and Thompson is a few weeks away from finally getting back on the court. A good team is going to get that much better. And Curry will be even better when it happens, because defenses know that they can’t leave Thompson alone.

“I just like where we are right now,” Curry said. “We’ve got good vibes around what we’re doing. There’s good energy. We’ve bounced back from tough losses really well. We’re handling our business right now.”

It’s an old cliché that regular fans don’t start watching the NBA until Christmas, and there is a certain amount of truth to that. That said, there have been compelling stories involving big names already this season. Kevin Durant, coming off another Olympic gold medal, is making scoring look easy in Brooklyn. Phoenix, coming off last season’s run to the NBA Finals, won 18 consecutive games before falling to the Warriors. The reigning champion Milwaukee Bucks, when their whole roster is together, look title-capable again.

But Curry is must-see TV anytime, even when he’s just taking shots from the stands before games.

And the Warriors probably are going to be worth watching all the way to the end.
