Steph Curry already achieved the most major Golden State Warriors records. But on Monday, he touched another milestone after surpassing basketball legend Wilt Chamberlain as the Warriors’ all-time leading scorer.
Curry leads the team in 3-pointers, all-time assist, free throw percentage and turnovers. On top of that, he is the only two-time MVP in Warriors’ history and is only a few of the Warriors to win three championships with the franchise.
With Monday’s stunning performance, he surpassed Wilt Chamberlain’s 17,783 career points. The former Lakers’ had been holding the record since 1965.
After last night’s game against Denver Nuggets, Curry’s career points stand at 17,818, and he is flying high after the record. “This is special. No, we got the win, and I can kind of like the process just happened, and the last two years all the team manes I play win coaching staffs ownership, our fans, I get some amazing experience here,” Curry said about his time at Warriors.
"Anytime you hear his name you always just assume his record is unreachable."

However, Steph never expected that he would reach Chamberlain. “Anytime you hear his name, you always just assume his record is unreachable. But still, it means something to be at the top of the list. I am very grateful to everybody,” Steph explains what passing Wilt means to him.
Steph Curry: the big guy against Nuggets
Before starting Monday’s game, Steph Curry needed 19 points to become the Warriors’ leading scorer. Nevertheless, Steph was on fire from the beginning and scored 21 in the first quarter alone.
However, the 33-year-old did not stop there and continued his phenomenal play to wipe out the Nuggets by 116-107.
Throughout the game, he hit ten threes. It was Curry’s ninth 50-point game of his career and his third of the 2021 season. He finished the game with six rebounds and four assists.
The Golden Boy single-handedly boosted the Warriors in the playoff race via seven straight games of 30 points. To put that in perspective, it is the longest streak of 30 point games in the 2021 NBA season.
