Updated January 20, 2018, 9:00 pm
58

Steph Curry can overtake Steve Nash and become the all-time NBA free-throw percentage leader if he makes the number of free-throws in the yellow box IN A ROW. This number recalculates after each game and it reflects exactly what Steph currently needs to be #1.


For further details, including what happens if playoffs are included, all-star games, college stats, and even the Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf controversy, scroll down. Follow Steph here as he tries to become the all-time leader!

Easy Comparison

Here’s an easy way to compare the leaders. If everyone hypothetically had the same amount of attempts as Stephen Curry as of today’s update, here’s how many “made” free-throws each would have (FTM). It’s a close race, but it’s hard to gain ground on guys making 9 of 10 repeatedly.

Just for fun, adding this completes the picture of all free throws taken as a pro. The magic number decreases a bit.

We dug deeper. If all free throws from college are added to the mix, the results change. Should this count? Add a comment!

The Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf Situation.

Who is the true all-time free-throw percentage leader? Many would say it's Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf. During his eight year career from 1990-1998, Abdul-Rauf (formerly known as Chris Jackson) shot 1051-1161 from the line, for a (rounded) percentage of .905.

The official statistic recognized by the NBA requires that a player attempt 1200 free-throws in his career in order to qualify for the title of all-time leader in FT%. Abdul-Rauf falls only 39 attempts short of this mark.

The table to the right shows how many Steph Curry would need to make in a row in order to pass Abdul-Rauf, and erase all doubt!

including mahmoud abdul-rauf!
