Averaging 21.5 points per game, he finished the season as the second-best scorer in the country and earned him the Southern Conference Freshman of the Year title.
In the 2007/08 season, he built on the record-breaking 122 three-pointers of his freshman season with an even more impressive performance. He led the Davidson Wildcats to their first NCAA Tournament appearance since 1969 and helped his team continue their 22-game winning streak.

Stephen dropped out of Davidson College without completing his senior year to pursue a career in the NBA. He was selected by the ‘Golden State Warriors with the seventh overall pick of the 2009 NBA draft. He showed his shooting ability early on and had a league record 166 three-pointers as a rookie.
For the next two seasons, his injuries and the fact that he was playing for a bad team kept him out of the limelight. He fully recovered from his ankle sprain in the 2012/13 season. Because of his combined three-point record in a season, he and teammate Klay Thompson were nicknamed “The Splash Brothers”. Stephen alone broke an NBA record with 272 three-pointers in a season.

He helped his team win 24 straight games the next season for a total of 73 wins, an all-time NBA record. Despite an injury, he led the Warriors to their second straight NBA Finals, but his record 27 three-pointers in a single game failed to save the team.
