I know this is something you are probably already aware of, but it really can't be said enough: Stephen Curry is good at basketball.
A bombshell, I know.
In Golden State's 129-116 win over the Minnesota Timberwolves Thursday night, Curry came up huge (as always) with 46 points, including a 21-point first quarter, to move the Warriors to 10-0 on the season, the best start in the history of the franchise. You can watch all of his buckets from the win right here:
That's amazing to watch, but it's even more amazing when you look at the numbers. Curry has the most 20-point quarters this season, with four so far. Nobody else has more than one. He's already had three 40-point games, the most in the NBA. What's more, he only needs two 3-pointers to catch his father Dell Curry's career total (1,245), but he's played fewer than half as many games.
Outperforming his father, a good NBA player, is one thing. Outperforming Michael Jordan is another. Just look at how he stacks up to MJ's 1996-1997 season through 10 games.

One more time: Steph Curry is good at basketball.
