Off the charts

NBA player Steff Curry isn’t just winning MVP awards and championships, he’s breaking records that allow people to create great charts, like this one from the New York Times, or these from FiveThirtyEight.

My favorite might be this one from FiveThirtyEight, which puts Curry’s record number of three-pointers in a season (402 was the final number) in context. Curry broke the record (his own, from last year) with an increase of 40 percent. That’s like someone hitting 102 home runs, scoring 129 goals, or throwing 77 touchdown passes. Most all-time records are broken; this one was shattered.
