Reggie Miller held the crown as the NBA's all-time 3-point leader for 13 seasons. His record fell when Ray Allen broke it in February of 2011, and Miller likely will see history again Tuesday night when the Warriors play the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden.
Steph Curry needs only two 3-pointers to pass Allen and become the NBA's career leader in 3-pointers made. While Curry likes his chances of holding onto the record for quite some time, Curry did mention players like Klay Thompson, James Harden, Damian Lillard and Buddy Hield as players who could chase it.
"I like my chances of keeping it forever," Curry said in an upcoming interview with Miller.
He also said he wouldn't go to Las Vegas and put money on that. Miller, though, believes you might as well open your wallet right now.
"Go to Vegas," Miller said. "This is one NBA record that will never -- you heard it -- never be touched."
"I'm with it," Curry responded while smiling.
Miller finished his 18-year career with 2,560 3-pointers. Allen also played 18 seasons but finished with 2,973 3-pointers. With two more 3s, Curry will be at 2,974 for his career ... in his 13th season.
Draymond Green believes Curry will wind up beating Allen's record by more than 1,000 3-pointers whenever his career comes to an end. There's a real chance that could happen too, and Milller probably wouldn't even be surprised.
Curry has changed the way we look at 3-pointers and basketball as a whole, and Miller can't wait to see what's next from Steph.
