The amount of records that Steph Curry and Lebron James have broken has fans spoiled. The two are no strangers to having their names placed in history. As a team, the Warriors and the Cavaliers have solidified their names into record books with the help of the stars on the team. Fans are so use to records being broken that many are overlooked. Take a look at the amount of records that Steph and Lebron have broken alongside their team during the 2015-2016 season.
The first record is the obvious 3-pointers made record that Steph Curry originally broke during the 2014-2015 seaso with 286 3-pointers made, but he completely shattered that number during this season with 402 3-pointers made. To help solidify the Warriors name in the record books, this season, Klay Thompson also placed himself among that list at number 3 all time with 276 3-pointers made. Among the top 10 for most 3-pointers made, Steph is featured four times with the number one, two, four, and seven spot, and Klay Thompson is featured at the number three spot.
This season, Lebron James became the youngest player ever to reach 25,000 points. At the rate Lebron James is going, with the body he has maintained throughout his career, he could shatter the all-time scoring record before it is all set and done. He is now 11th all time passing greats such as Oscar Robertson, Jerry West, Allen Iverson, and more.
Lebron James also became the only Non-Celtics player (Besides James Jones), to play in 6 Consecutive NBA Finals. Regardless of how anyone feels about Lebron, this is an amazing feat to accomplish. In that time, Lebron has also played in the Olympics and is still going the distance each year.
Steph and Klay continued their 3-point dominace throughout these playoff breaking even more records in that field. Before the 2015-16 season no player had hit more than 28 3-pointers in a series. Klay Thompson had 30 and Steph had 32. Not to mention, Klay Thompson in the Western Conference Finals broke the single playoff game record for most 3-pointers made in a game with 11.
The 2015-16 season was a very historic one to watch for basketball fans. These records are just a few that should be taken into account when one realizes that these players have done a lot for the NBA. So much has been done, and it is still not over yet.
