This wild Steph stat demonstrates his remarkable efficiency


Steph Curry has changed the way the basketball world has looked at 3-pointers, and the Warriors star has re-written the record books on shooting the ball.

So it's no surprise that Curry stands alone as the only non-center to be among the top-15 in effective field goal percentage in NBA history, per the folks over at Statmuse.

Among players with at least 2,000 field goal attempts in the league, Curry's 58.3 effective field goal percentage is ninth all-time, just behind eight-time All-Star Dwight Howard (58.7) and just ahead of another former MVP in Shaquille O'Neal.

The formula for effective field goal percentage was designed to account for the fact that a 3-point shot is worth 50 percent more points than a standard field goal.

Just outside the top-15 is noted NBA sharpshooter Kyle Korver (16th), and Warriors head coach Steve Kerr also comes in 24th on the league's all-time leaderboard.

Of the 10 seasons with the most 3-pointers made by an individual in NBA history, Curry is responsible for five of them. Steph also ranks second on the career 3-pointers made list, just 141 behind legendary shooter Ray Allen.

There's no shortage of figures that demonstrate Curry's elite ability to shoot from the outside, and there is little question as to who should be regarded as the best shooter in NBA history.


Once Curry is reunited on the court with one of the other most elite 3-point marksmen the game has ever seen in Klay Thompson, NBA defenses again will have their hands more than full.
