Stephen Curry has been otherworldly in the early part of the 2021-22 season.
If there was an MVP handed out for the first quarter of the season, the trophy would definitely have Curry's name etched onto it. But is he having his best season ever for the Warriors?
Let's take a closer look.
2015-16: Stephen Curry becomes Thanos
When one looks back on the career of Wardell Stephen Curry II, season 2015-16 is certainly the campaign that most would point to as his best season ever. It's difficult to imagine Curry ever replicating that again - that was Thanos Curry.
Curry was so good that season that people say he broke the game of basketball.
The Warriors won a league-record 73 games and Curry was named unanimous MVP. In 79 games, he averaged 30.1 points, 6.7 assists and 5.4 rebounds. He made over half his field-goal attempts that season and connected on 45.4 percent of his 11.2 3-point attempts per game. He made over 90 percent of his free throws, joining the exclusive 50/40/90 club.
Curry is the only player in NBA history to average 30 points per game on 50-40-90 splits for an entire season.
His Player Efficiency Rating (PER) that season was 31.5 — the best for a guard since Michael Jordan's 1990-91 season. By comparison, when the Bulls won 72 games in 1996, Jordan had a PER of 29.4.
