Curry\’s 3-Point Crown

December 15, 2021

By: Carlos Alvarez

Good Morning,

If there’s any player in any sport who flipped the game on its head, it’s Steph Curry. Now he’s the king of the 3-point record with plenty of rainmakers to be made.

Letter Rip!



Curry\’s 3-Point Crown


Steph Curry Becomes NBA’s All-Time 3-Point Leader in Warriors’ Win Over Knicks (105-96)


Move aside, Ray Allen. The new NBA 3-point king has claimed his crown, and he has plenty of trifectas left to drill. Steph Curry buried his record-setting 2,974th career 3-pointer Tuesday night at Madison Square Garden. Officials stopped the game to recognize the achievement — a celebration at MSG with Curry’s parents and Ray Allen himself. Allen’s record stood for 10 years, but Curry should set the bar high enough to last for decades. He finished the night with 22 points and five triples as the Warriors handled the Knicks (105-96).


\”This arena, I can\’t express how much of an honor that was for the reaction here on the road and the appreciation for this milestone. And obviously, it was great to get the win on top of that. So, a very, very, very special night.” — Steph Curry


The Sky’s the Limit

With 2,977 3-pointers at age 33, Curry has averaged 3.8 triples per game in his 13-year career. If he plays another five seasons (age 38) while making the same number of 3s per game, he’ll finish with more than 4,500 deep balls. Untouchable.

The COVID-19 Impact Tracker


Significant Rise in COVID-19 Cases Spell Trouble for Winter Sports Once Again


Normalcy appeared, but it could vanish just as quickly. Despite COVID-19 vaccinations and a valiant effort across all sports leagues to maintain health and safety protocols, the virus concerns are impacting games once again. The rise in cases has caused shutdowns across all major sports.


COVID-19 Impact


NFLThe NFL saw a record-high 37 positive COVID-19 tests on Monday following Week 14. The teams impacted the most were the Cleveland Browns (8) and Rams (9). Both the Browns and Rams shut down their training facilities. No games have been postponed, but the total number of current cases is now more than 75 in the last two days.


NBAThe Chicago Bulls were the center of the COVID-19 news in the NBA with 10 players and additional staff in health and safety protocols. Chicago had two games postponed this week. The Nets’ COVID list has reached seven, including James Harden. Giannis Antetokounmpo (Bucks) is also sidelined.


NHLThe Calgary Flames were the first NHL team wiped by virus concerns after six players and one staff member tested positive. The Flames had three games postponed this week. The Hurricanes (4) also have an outbreak that postponed their game against the Wild on Tuesday.


The sports world has bounced back to a familiar place of full stadiums and minimal disruptions ever since the Olympics, but a few months of normalcy could be in jeopardy. Let the schedule shifting begin.
