Last name Curry is synonymous with triple

In Major League Baseball, home runs are often referred to as home runs.

A reference to “El Bambino” Babe Ruth, mythical sports figure and who “invented” the home run being the first with 20, 30, 40, 50 and 60 in a season and who several times hit more home runs alone than several complete teams .

Well, in NBA basketball something similar could happen with the Curry surname and three-point shots. Soon scoring a triple would be recognized as a “Curry.”

Stephen Curry is the superstar. Seth Curry is the globetrotting brother and Dell Curry is their father. The first two active and the second retired have made their name in the league, mainly, based on shooting baskets from long and extra long distance.
