Steph Curry is about to set yet another significant record

Nobody is as synonymous with the Golden State Warriors as Steph Curry and soon nobody will have worn the uniform for more minutes on an NBA court.

If Steph Curry logs his season average of 33.2 minutes per game Monday night against Houston, he will pass Nate Thurmond as the franchise’s all-time leader in minutes played, adding to a list of accomplishments that includes the most 3-pointers in NBA history, four NBA championships and a unanimous MVP.

Curry needed 30 minutes to pass Thurmond, who totaled 30,729 over 11 seasons with the Warriors from 1963-74.

Thurmond, who died in 2016, was inducted into the Hall of Fame and named alongside Curry on the NBA’s 75th anniversary team, averaging 15 points and 15 rebounds over his career, which began as the No. 3 overall selection in the 1963 draft. Remarkably, he averaged 40.6 minutes per game, racking up enough time on the floor to hold up as a franchise record for 49 years, a number it took Curry 15 seasons to reach.

A little further down the list are Curry’s championship-winning companions, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green.

In sixth place, Thompson is about 500 minutes — or about 17 games’ worth — away from passing Rick Barry. Despite a two-year absence, Thompson holds a slight edge on Green, who is a little further away — about 1,500 minutes — from passing Jeff Mullins for seventh all-time.
