Steph Curry was overcome with emotion Tuesday night when he finally passed Ray Allen for most career 3-pointers in NBA history during the Warriors' 105-96 win over the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden.
After splashing career triple 2,974, Curry shared moments with his mom, dad, teammates, Reggie Miller and Allen, who was in attendance at MSG.
Following the win, Curry gave a vintage thank you speech in the locker room, and the two-time MVP took to social media Wednesday to thank Warriors fans for riding with him since he arrived in the Bay.
"We got some more to do, 2,974 and counting."
Now all alone on the 3-point mountain top, Curry finally was able to accept a title he earned long ago -- greatest shooter of all time.
“I never wanted to call myself the greatest shooter until I got this record,” Curry said. "Now, I feel comfortable saying that."
Like all legendary athletes, Curry didn't stay transfixed on his latest milestone for too long. He's now focused on what he can do next.
"I think everybody talks about the greatest shooter ever and all that conversation," Curry said. "My respect for Reggie [Miller] and Ray, guys who set the bar for what it meant to be a sharpshooter, to have the longevity as well. For me, I've tried to own that in my journey in terms of range, volume, efficiency. All those things go into it. I pride myself on shooting a high percentage.
"I pride myself on allowing that to help us win games, and now I can pride myself on the longevity of getting to that number that Ray set and hopefully pushing it to a number that nobody can reach. We'll see what happens, but that's something that the balance of volume and efficiency for me is the standard that I wanted to set."
