Practice Makes Perfect

As nice as a jumper as Curry has, practice makes everything better. So again, let’s look to Allen for some historical precedence. Over his 17-year tenure, Allen’s three-point percentage has only gotten better with time. We can see this illustrated very clearly in this nifty graph I created.

The points in blue are Allen’s actual percentage in that year of his career. The points in red are calculated using a linear regression line. You can clearly see that the linear regression line has a positive slope. If your math lingo is a little rusty, it basically means that the line is pointing upwards, which is good for Curry who still has 13 years and counting to match Allen’s career.

While there are differences between the actual point and the calculated point, it only goes to show what the average trend will be. The point of the graph is that over 17 years, Allen’s three-point percentage has improved over time and so will Curry’s.
