Golden State Warriors star Steph Curry is one of the best shooters in NBA history, but a video of him making full-court shots was confirmed fake.
When it comes to who is one of the best shooters in NBA history, that is current Golden State Warriors star Steph Curry. Just last year, he had broken the all-time record for most three-pointers made in NBA history, surpassing legend Ray Allen. That, and he won the NBA Finals MVP for the first time in his career after the Warriors defeated the Boston Celtics in six games.
In a photo shoot, Curry made not one, not two, but five near full-court shots in a row in a video shared by Sports Illustrated.

There was debate as to whether this video is actually legitimate, or if there is some superior editing going on.
UPDATE: According to Janie McCauley of the Associated Press, the Warriors confirmed that the video in question is not real.
As mentioned earlier, Curry broke the all-time three-pointer record last season by making his 2,974th deep shot when facing the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden. He stands atop the list, and the number will keep growing until he eventually retires.
This season, Curry is averaging 30.8 points while shooting 51.1-percent from the field and 44.1-percent from the three point line through 22 games. Additionally, Curry averaged 7.1 assists and 6.7 rebounds.
Prior to being confirmed as not real, this video of Curry casually draining near full-court shots went viral.
