Steph Curry has opportunity to make free-throw history in NBA Finals

Steph Curry has opportunity to make free-throw history in NBA Finals

Programming note: Watch the NBA Finals pregame edition of Warriors Outsiders on Thursday at 4 p.m., streaming live on the MyTeams app.

Steph Curry is the best shooter in the history of basketball.

To nobody's surprise, he's also one of the best free throw shooters the game has ever seen.

"I just don’t like missing free throws in general," the two-time NBA MVP told NBC Sports' Tom Haberstroh after a recent Golden State practice.

Fortunately for Curry and the Warriors, he doesn't miss many.

The six-time All-Star is a career 90.5 percent shooter from the line, and he has made 94 percent (94-for-100) of his attempts during these playoffs.

Has anybody been better over a single postseason? Glad you asked. Haberstroh has the answer:

The only person in NBA history to shoot better on at least 100 free throws in a postseason is Dirk Nowitzki in 2011 when he made 175 of 186 (94.1 percent).

Over his last five games (with Kevin Durant sidelined), Curry is averaging 8.6 free throw attempts.

Let's assume Curry continues at that pace and the NBA Finals against the Raptors goes the full seven games. If the three-time NBA champion goes 57-for-60 from the charity stripe, that would put him at 151-for-160 during the playoffs.

That's good for a percentage of ...

... 94.38, vaulting him past Dirk.

If he makes "only" 56 of 60 attempts, he would finish at ...

... 93.8 percent.

That's pretty dang wild.

Don't assume Curry isn't aware of these numbers. He's as competitive as they come.

Enjoy Game 1.

Watch Steph Curry play 1-on-1 at Mistah F.A.B.'s Oakland block party

While the Warriors held an event for season-ticket holders to check out Chase Center in San Francisco for the first time on Sunday, Steph Curry was back in Oakland hoopin' it up.

The Warriors star point guard made an appearance at Mistah F.A.B.'s Oakland Block Party, and he didn't stand on the sidelines. Curry was running with the fellas, and he was taking it pretty seriously.

The best sequence came when an opposing player went at Curry and nailed a 3-pointer in his face. Curry tried to return the favor on the other end, but missed his shot.

Curry got the young fella back later, hitting a fadeaway jumper.

Curry was the guest of honor, but F.A.B. was the host, so he got the final shot and made the game-winner, much to the delight of Curry.

The Warriors now call San Francisco home, but Curry will never forget where his career started. He spent the last 10 years in Oakland, and he's not about to turn his back on The Town.

Klay Thompson gets trolled again by friend Zaza Pachulia on Instagram

Death, taxes and Zaza Pachulia bashing on Klay Thompson.

Those are the guarantees in life. But it's all in good fun, even on matters of the heart.

Klay recently posted a cute photo while he was in France with Laura Harrier. It was so precious, but Zaza had to ruin the moment:

"Finally somebody loves you bro," Zaza commented.

Don't worry, they're close friends and do this from time to time.

When Klay suffered his torn left ACL, Zaza posted a sweet video on Instagram to wish him a speedy recovery -- and only because he wanted to have a dunk contest rematch. 

That's what friends are for.
