The current Bobcat, Gordon made 770 three’s in his first five years (all with the Bulls).  The next five years have not been totally kind to the former UConn Huskie as he made a total of 365 threes since leaving Chicago.

The only other players in NBA history to hit 700+ three’s during their first five seasons are Nick Van Exel and Kyle Korver.

The league’s all-time career leader in made three’s Ray Allen had 699 in his first five years.  Based on these four names Steph Curry could end up with a wide range of career outcomes.
