In a remarkable display of endurance and skill, Golden State Warriors' superstar Steph Curry has etched his name in NBA history by becoming the oldest player to maintain a 30.0 points per game average through the initial 10 games of a season. 

The 35-year-old athlete achieved this milestone following the Warriors' 118-110 loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers at Chase Center on Saturday night.

Averaging an impressive 30.0 points for the 6-4 Warriors, Curry boasts a shooting percentage of 49.5 from the field and an astounding 45.2 percent on 3-pointers, showcasing his consistent accuracy.

Not only a scoring maestro, but Curry also maintains a well-rounded game, contributing 4.6 rebounds and 4.0 assists per game this season. 

Just 13 days ago, a standout performance against the New Orleans Pelicans, where Curry scored 42 points, left coach Steve Kerr in awe, describing the veteran guard as aging like fine wine.

"He looks better than ever at 35 [years old]," Kerr remarked. "He puts the work in every summer. There’s a reason he’s Steph Curry. It’s just stunning to watch."

This season mirrors Curry's exceptional form from the previous year, where he averaged 29.4 points in 56 games. 

Furthermore, the three-time NBA scoring title holder is in pursuit of his fourth title, having last claimed the honor during the 2020-2021 season.

LeBron James holds the record as the oldest player to average 30 points for an entire season, achieved at the age of 37 during the 2020-2021 NBA season. 

However, with Curry's unwavering longevity and 72 games remaining, the spotlight may shift towards the Warriors' maestro in this high-scoring race, providing a crucial boost for the team as they strive for consistency.
