Look at this.
Look at it.
Stare at it.
It gives me goosebumps. It makes the hairs on the back of my neck stand up. It’s dispicable. It’s spectacular.
I think I love Steph Curry.
Through five games, Curry is off to an other worldly start. He’s hitting 57% of his FGA, which is impressive enough for a star Point Guard that puts up 20 shots a night, but it’s even more impressive when you realize that he’s making 52% of his three’s. But saying that he’s just making shots doesn’t do it justice.

I just don’t understand how. There has never been a player that can haul up a shot and have me just assume it’s going to drop. Last season I had the feeling, but statistically speaking at least, I could reassure myself that Steph was still a human being and ma tiny majority of his shot wouldn’t go in (he shot 49%, phew!). But those happy days are gone, with a statistical majority of Steph’s shots going in now!
HE IS LITERALLY MAKING ALL OF HIS SHOTS.
Perhaps nothing will show you just how good Steph has been the past five games better than this:

That’s right folks. Steph Curry, who was last years best shooter, is still improving at a rapid rate.
