Stephen Curry has been incredible from behind the three-point line over the past two years. He has always been a dead-eye from long-range, but since 2014-15 he has taken it to another level, twice breaking the record for single-season threes and becoming the first ever player to record over 400 in one campaign as the Golden State Warriors went 73-9.

There seems to be nothing that can stop the point guard from catching Ray Allen as the leading three-point shooter in history. However, it seems the shooting guard has a desire to ensure he prolongs his stay at the top.

Allen has not played in the NBA since his spell with the Miami Heat ended in 2014, but the two-time champion is keen to make a return once again. According to Gary Washburn of The Boston Globe, the guard is using Curry as his inspiration to make another comeback. 

As per CSN New England, Washburn said: "Ray wants to play again. I’m sure about that. I don’t think he particularly enjoys watching Stephen Curry rain 3s and challenge his record and be called the best shooter in the world. I think that bothers him. I know Ray wants to extend his all-time 3-point record."

Allen is currently the leading all-time three-point shooter with 2973 during his illustrious career. Curry only recently moved into the top twenty with 1593 to his name, but if he continues at a rate of around 300 per season it shouldn't be too long before he passes the former Boston Celtics man.

A return for Allen would only delay what seems to be the inevitable. He would be limited to a rotation spot if he were to make a comeback and his opportunities from behind the arc would be few and far between. 

Steph is closing in and it seems there isn't much Allen can do about it.
