Stephen Curry’s remarkable rise to three-point king

Stephen Curry’s remarkable rise to three-point king

Until a few years ago, I was completely disinterested in basketball. Then two things happened: I saw Steph Curry play. And I realised how well basketball lends itself to data-driven analysis. Suddenly, I was intrigued. This week, Curry broke the all-time record for 3-point-shots made, at a much younger age and in far fewer games than those before him. What better way to honour this achievement than with a well-crafted data-driven analysis?
