Sacramento Kings guard Buddy Hield is a legitimate contender to break Stephen Curry’s career 3-point record. Hield has averaged 276 made 3-pointers per season over the past five years, while Curry has averaged 242. If Hield can maintain his current pace, he could reach 4,500 3-pointers in the next decade.
Hield has been a consistent force from beyond the arc since entering the league in 2016. He has made 1,705 3-pointers in his career, which ranks 29th all-time. Hield is also a reliable shooter, having made at least 40% of his 3-pointers in each of the past four seasons.
In addition to his shooting prowess, Hield is also a durable player. He has played in at least 70 games in each of the past six seasons. This durability will be important if he wants to break Curry’s record, which will require him to play at a high level for many years to come.
“I’m always working to get better,” Hield said. “I want to be the best shooter in the league, and I know I can do it.”
Hield’s quest to break Curry’s record will be closely watched by fans and analysts alike. It is a daunting task, but Hield has the talent and drive to make it happen.
