Stephen Curry is no stranger to making history; at this point it is part and parcel of his game.

The point guard was named the first ever unanimous MVP in American sports history last year en route to a record-setting 73 wins for his Golden State Warrior side.

During the 2012–13 season, Curry set the NBA record for three-pointers made in a regular season with 272.

He surpassed that record in 2015 with 286, and again in 2016 with a staggering and quite unbelievable 402. To put that into context, the Milwaukee Bucks made 440 three-pointers as a team last season.

During the 2013–14 season, he and teammate Klay Thompson set the NBA record for combined three-pointers in a season with 484, a record they broke the following season with 525 and, surprise surprise, again in the 2015–16 season with 678.

Well, the 28-year-old is at it again and the Dubs' season is only two games old.

The four three-pointers he made against New Orleans on Friday were enough to surpass Ray Allen as the fastest player in NBA history to make 1,600 career threes.

While Curry continues to shatter records at an alarming rate, he must at least be in the conversation for the best shooter of all-time.
