Stephen Curry is arguably the best shooter the NBA has ever seen. He makes circus-style shots look effortless. He has a comprehension of the game unmatched by any player. He’s so good you forget how impressive a shooter Klay Thompson is.

The two-time MVP and three-time NBA Champion his his 500th 3-point shot last night in front of a hometown crowd, making him the first in NBA history to hit the mark.

Curry has amassed impressive personal accolades, but since basketball is a team sport, I’d be willing to bet he’s most happy to come from behind and take a 3-1 lead in the series over the Memphis Grizzlies last night.
