Steph is on historic pace making free throws right now

Maybe this is why Steph Curry doesn't get superstar foul calls. 

When Curry steps to the free throw line, he might as well pull a Michael Jordan and close his eyes. Other teams around the NBA probably wish that was a rule.

Why? Well, Curry now has the best free throw percentage in NBA history through a player's first seven games of a season, with a minimum of 35 free throws made. In the Warriors' dominant 137-106 win over the Kings on Monday night, he passed his own record of 98.1 percent.

Curry now has made 55 of his 56 free throw attempts this season. His first miss came Sunday in his 62-point barrage. That miss broke a career-best and Warriors franchise record of 80 straight made free throws.

For his career, Curry is shooting 90.7 percent from the free throw line. That is highest career percentage from the free throw line in NBA history, ahead of his former coach Steve Nash, who shot 90.4 percent from the charity stripe. 

There's a reason he's the greatest shooter of all time, whether it be from beyond the arc or catching his breath for free throws.
