Stephen Curry Breaks Ray Allen's Record For Most Postseason Three-Pointers

Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry broke the NBA record for most three-pointers made in the postseason in a 121-104 victory over the Los Angeles Clippers in Game 1 in the first round of the 2018-19 NBA playoffs. Curry (386) passed Ray Allen (385) with his eighth made three-pointer of the night en route to one of the best games in his postseason career with 38 points, seven assists, and a career-high 15 rebounds. The most impressive aspect of Curry's feat of most postseason three-pointers in a career is the fact that he achieved it in only 91 games, while Allen's achievement was accomplished in 171 games.

Curry now owns yet another three-point record, which should further cement his legacy as the greatest shooter to ever grace the hardwood of a basketball court, as if he needed further proof of that distinction. Curry owns five of the top 10 seasons in total three-pointers made and stands within 100 regular season 3s of passing Reggie Miller (2,560) for second place on the all-time list for three-pointers made. At his current rate, he may pass Allen (2,973) for first place in two years. Ever since his prominence from beyond the arc began several years ago, teams around the NBA have utilized the three-point shot to an increasingly high degree. Teams are shooting more three-pointers than ever before, and this is largely because of Curry and his long-distance wizardry.

The Warriors look to win a third consecutive title this NBA season after prevailing in the previous two against the Cleveland Cavaliers, and there is still an abundance of playoff games for them to play. With these games will undoubtedly come more three-pointers from Curry, and time will tell how high he sets the bar for shooting beyond the arc for future generations by the time he retires.

The Birthplace of Basketball

The NBA Playoffs are here. It’s kind of funny that my history kind of started out in the same place that basketball’s did too.

Basketball was originally created by James Naismith, a Presbyterian minister who taught P.E. at YMCA in Springfield, Massachusetts. He invented the new game to keep the young men occupied inside during the winter. Borrowing ideas from rugby and a game he used to play as a boy, “duck on the rock”, he thought of nailing up boxes to throw a ball into. He couldn’t find boxes so he used peach baskets instead. The rest of the rules he made up in about an hour.

I Met You At The Wrong Time

At least, that's what I keep telling myself.

I met you when I was in middle school and I thought boys still had cooties. I wore flared jeans, Aeropostale shirts, and had the dorkiest braces ever. I cared about what other people thought of me, and I definitely cared a lot about what you thought, too. You were older, and your friends made fun of me when I talked to you. I pretended it didn’t bother me, but it did. I sat two rows in front of you in class, and constantly tried to think of reasons to talk to you. Your hair was a curly mess. It still is. You graduated from middle school a year before me, and I missed you. I don’t think you even knew my name.

Why I Don't Believe In Religion

I used to be comfortable with religion, but now I'm uncomfortable.

I’m not one of those people who doesn’t believe in God because“if there was a God, why would He let such horrible things happen?” Saying that because sometimes bad things happen, there must be no benevolent higher power, to me, makes about as much sense as saying that because sometimes it gets dark, there must be no light.
