What is there left to be said about Stephen Curry that has not already been mentioned? The Golden State Warriors point guard has improved on his MVP season and looks nailed on to retain the award once the regular season ends. 

The 28-year-old has been shooting the lights out for the defending champions as the Warriors currently sit on a 61-6 record in their pursuit of the 1995-96 Chicago Bulls' 72-10 regular season finish. 

He leads the league in points per game and is averaging 30.5, shooting a career-high 51.4 percent from the field and 46.2 percent from behind the arc.

The three-time All-Star has been one of the NBA's best shooters since 2012 but has taken his game onto a new level to be considered the best shooter to ever play the game. 

It has been known that Curry had pinpoint accuracy since his days at Davidson where he was the leading scorer among freshman in the NCAA during his first year.

And an interview with a player from the college, who was teammates with Curry for a year, shows that not much has changed with the number 30 since he entered the big league. 

As per Quora, Lamar Hull shone some light on what the point guard was like during his time in college. He said: "I played with Stephen in 07'. I was a senior when he was a freshman. Steph is a character, he has a great personality and is a very humble person!

"He has an amazing work ethic, that is why he is so good today in addition to some other factors. We played a lot of 1-on-1 his freshman year and I saw then he was going to be great because of his basketball IQ and shooting ability.

"He is definitely a blessed basketball player... I still can't believe so many schools passed him up."

Curry was a premium shooter in college and averaged 25.3 points per game, with a 46.7 percentage from the field during his three years. His hot shooting was the inspiration behind Davidson's run to the regional final in the 2008 March Madness. The 10th seed almost upset Kentucky, a first seed.

But since joining the Dubs he has taken his productivity on to a new level and is going about breaking all of the three-point records currently in place with his incredible accuracy and range.

He is the first player in NBA history to reach 300 three-pointers in a season, he currently has 330. He also holds the record for consecutive games with a bucket from deep, a record he took from the Atlanta Hawks' Kyle Korver during a win over the Orlando Magic. 

In truth, any three-point record in the NBA, Curry has it in his sights.
