Yes, they were undisputed exercise threesomes. But nobody on earth has the right to pull off something like that

During the vacation, Stephen Curry did something that contradicts our understanding of what a basketball player, or even a human, is capable of. Something you have a little trouble believing in even after watching the whole thing on video

>

I counted them all myself and I can confirm that he scored 103 hits directly on video (the team says he actually hit 105 directly and that the camera didn’t start rolling until the third attempt) entire clip from start to finish is a truly contradicting experience: On the one hand, Steph is the greatest three-point shooter who ever lived Of course, a certain shot is likely to happen, but even with repeated viewing, expect him to brick number 28, number 51, or number 60. He has to miss number 74, right? This has to end

No, he carries on in fact, once he hits number 80 after about 4 minutes, he achieves superhuman levels of accuracy, with most of his shots barely disrupting the net I don’t know if I’ll ever be an athlete I’ve seen it look more like machines I can’t get over it

What are the chances of this? Well, Steph is a 434 three-point shooter in his NBA career, of course, we have to toss this out the window because these terms are completely different: he has no defense, his pals are there to reload and keep him in his groove, and he has the luxury of making every shot exactly the same spot. As long as we’re here, we should appreciate the man’s qualifications

Curry put together three seasons of three-point shooting that felt like they came from the future.James Harden has done more three in one season since then, but nobody has ever been nearly as efficient at anything near that volume, he’s the one greatest three-point shooter ever, and this is one of the few things no one ever debates

But what exactly are his chances of hitting 105 (we’ve only seen 103, but I can easily believe 105) successive practice threesomes? We can’t know because aside from this particular feat, we don’t have an “undisputed corner three in a t-shirt” shot percentage. What we can do is calculate the probability of a possible shot percentage

What general statistical percentage tends to produce the highest results in the entire sports world? The Secret Base team spent a few minutes tossing things on the wall – NHL goalkeeper savings percentage, NFL extra point percentage before pushing back the line, etc. – and finally decided on the MLB field percentage

Outfielder Jon Jay holds the record with a career fielding percentage of 9,958. It couldn’t be better! Hit him the ball 10000 times and he breaks 42 of them It’s ridiculous to imagine that a three-point shooter can work as reliably as an outfielder catching a pop-up, but let’s do it anyway

The chances that Jay will successfully use 105 consecutive balls without fail is 643%. If Curry’s shooting percentage was the same as the highest percentage of anything anyone has ever recorded in the sport, he would have had less than a 2-in 3-Take of what we just saw

Just for fun, let’s try using this video and this one on its own to find out what percentage he shot for that particular shot

Assuming Steph didn’t play in the NBA but spent all day shooting that exact shot every day, we’re talking hundreds of thousands of shots, which gives us a shot percentage with an enormous sample size. If that shooting percentage were 900 what Difficult to imagine at first, his chances of hitting 105 in a row are a thousandth of a percent – practically impossible. If that shooting percentage were 950, his chances are still well below one percent. It has to be 975 to even have a puncher chance It must be about 995, in fact, probable in all respects

Steph himself seems half excited, half irritated by himself. His mate is desperate. A couple of others are frolicking in the gym without knowing what was just happening across the room, this guy just has our understanding of what’s going on the human ability lies and what not, blown over his knee? Eh, hard to tell from here, but he seems crazy about something
