The team and its lead player have found so much success over the last decade and that’s why they recently secured their fourth championship ring against the Boston Celtics.
To really study the impact that Curry has had on the game, you have to look at some of the most pivotal statistics since he entered the league.
Total players averaging 6+ 3PA:
2 — Before 2015
37 — After 2015

Before 2015, there were only two players who were averaging six or more three-point attempts during a game.
After 2015, that number jumped up to 37 players.
The league wasn’t always so obsessed with three-pointers but after seeing what Curry did and the success he found, everyone else got in line and tried their hand at shooting from downtown.
Curry has become a legendary superstar since joining the Warriors.
He is a four-time champion, the three-point champion, a regular season MVP, and now a Finals MVP too.
There just aren’t many people as talented or successful as Curry.
So, it’s no surprise that others want to be like Curry.
And that list will only grow because Curry keeps proving his dominance.
This latest Finals victory might be his most important yet because it’s come a few years after the one before and follows Curry’s rebound from injury.
No one should ever doubt Curry or count him out.
They should also never doubt his impact on the rest of the league and the players within it.
