Steph Curry’s name is all over the NBA and Warriors team record books. Most notably, of course, as the league’s all-time leader in 3-pointers.
On Saturday, he added one more: No player has appeared in more games in a Golden State uniform than Curry.
When the ball was tipped Saturday night in the Warriors’ matchup against the Brooklyn Nets at Chase Center, Curry had officially played in his 808th career game. He surpasses Hall of Fame forward Chris Mullin, who played 807 contests for Golden State from 1985-86 through 1996-97 and 2000-01.
"Steph has done so many things and there are so many records that they run into each other," Warriors coach Steve Kerr told reporters prior to Saturday's game. "I love that particular record just because it signifies his loyalty to the franchise and vice versa, the love-affair that exists between Steph and the Bay. It's pretty unique. You don't see this an awful lot.
"You think of Reggie Miller in Indiana or Larry Bird in Boston. Kobe Bryant in LA, Tim Duncan and Manu [Ginóbili] in San Antonio, it's pretty unique, pretty special and I know we take great pride in our organization in Steph and I think he takes a lot of pride in representing us and the Bay Area, so that record is a reminder of how lucky we are to have him as our cornerstone of the franchise."
Warriors fans are hoping to see Steph in a Warriors uniform for many more years to come, in which he would likely end up shattering Mullin's record.
Not only will Curry pass up the former five-time NBA All-Star but teammates Draymond Green (673 games played) and Klay Thompson (623 games played) aren't too far behind Mullin either.
The Warriors -- and their fans -- are hoping to see all three of those names atop the list one day.
