Stephen Curry joins, Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant in elite company

Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry is doing things we’ve rarely seen from someone his age in the NBA. The 33-year-old point guard is in the midst of an historical season that has him averaging north of 30 points per game.

The struggling Oklahoma City Thunder got a first-hand view of Curry’s brilliance on the road in San Francisco Thursday evening.

The two-time NBA MVP dropped 34 points through three quarters, which represented his 35th 30-point performance thus far this season. In the process, Stephen Curry joined all-time greats Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant in an elite club.

Now, that’s a pretty remarkable accomplishment for the future first ballot Hall of Famer. After all, MJ and Black Mamba are considered the two greatest to ever do it.

Firmly in the NBA MVP conversation, Curry entered Thursday’s action averaging an NBA-best 31.5 points per game this season. Since the start of April, the dude is averaging 37.1 points on 46% shooting from distance in 18 games.
