Who would in a 3-point shootout in their primes: Stephen Curry or Steve Kerr?

Golden State Warriors three-point savant Stephen Curry put on a show for the ages, scoring 51 points while going 11 for 16 from beyond the arc. Stephen Curry is widely regarded as the best three-point shooter in the NBA today, but looming over him in the record books is his head coach, Steve Kerr, who holds the NBA record for three-point field goal percentage.

There have been three-point shooters before, but no one has weaponized the shot quite like Stephen Curry. No one in NBA history has been as efficient as he his with the volume he produces. The former Davidson Wildcat is already ranked thirteenth in NBA history in three-point attempts, just 10 years into his career, and is slated to pass Dirk Nowitzki, who has over 20 years of service in the league. Despite those numbers, Curry is shooting 43.7 percent from the three-point line, good for third on the all-time NBA list as of October 25, 2018. 

Kerr might be the leader with 45.4 percent, but he's attempted over 3,300 fewer attempts. If it came down to a contest, Curry is by far the more superior shooter.

Curry might be the hot name right now, but all Steve Kerr has to do is point to the record books. Kerr is still the most accurate three-point sniper in NBA history. 

Kerr might not have the volume that Curry has, but that's because he was never asked to. Best believe that if he did, he would be just as accurate because he was obsessive in his approach. People forget how automatic the former Chicago Bull was whenever he took a shot. In his prime, he would beat Curry.
