What records are left for Curry to chase?
Anthony Slater, Warriors beat writer: The next huge one on his docket is the all-time made 3s record. Allen is in his sights and that will very likely go down in the middle of next season. It’s the one left that he cares about most. Curry recently said he won’t call himself the greatest shooter ever until he obtains it.
Beyond that? He’s not likely to fly too high up the all-time scoring ladder. He didn’t enter the NBA early enough and had injury troubles early in his career.
How long can he go?
Slater: His father, Dell, aged well, remaining a great shooter and useful role player deep into his mid-30s and retiring at 38. Steph is better than Dell and is committed to a much more advanced offseason training regimen that has those around him predicting he will maintain his All-Star level for a few more seasons and should still be a good player and elite shooter until he’s nearing 40.
We’ll see. But this season has done plenty to add to the belief that he has an elongated prime ahead of him, similar to LeBron James and Chris Paul.
On Bradley Beal’s season
Fred Katz, Wizards beat writer: Beal will have to settle for second in the league in scoring for the second consecutive season. He finished directly behind James Harden in 2019-20.
That said, there’s no question he got his preferred result Sunday. The Wizards won, as he fought through a strained hamstring, to capture eighth place in the East, putting them in a double-elimination situation for the play-in tournament.
Regardless of finishing behind or in front of Curry, he remains in the middle of All-NBA conversations for helping the Wizards get there.
