What an amazing season this has been for Golden State Warrior Stephen Curry. He has always been known for his shooting, but in the last game of the season he launched himself into NBA history books by breaking Ray Allen's record for most threes in a season with a whopping 272 total three-point shots made!
But wait--it gets better! Stephen has been a supporter of the Nothing But Nets campaign since his years at Davidson College, and this season he showed the world that he is still committed to the fight against deadly malaria. For every three-point shot he makes this season, Stephen is donating three life-saving bed nets to protect families in sub-Saharan Africa from malaria-carrying mosquitoes that bite at night. That's a total of 816 bed nets--now 816 families that can sleep safe from malaria. How amazing is that?
And just because the season is over doesn't mean Steph will stop sending nets! The Golden State Warriors are headed to the playoffs. Their first game is Saturday night so we're looking forward to counting more three pointers.
