“It’s interesting to know how the coverage of the game has changed,” Curry said, imagining the media landscape of Chamberlain’s day. “Did people really realize how transcendent he was or talk about it to this magnitude while he was in the middle of it? How was that framed during his rise, in his prime, on the way down, and even after his career? I don’t know what the answer is, but it’s crazy to know that there are comparisons like me and Wilt, even though I still feel like I’ve got a lot left to do.” Maybe that’s why he got it all over with so fast. Needing 19 points to pass Chamberlain’s mark of 17,783, Curry scored 21 points in the first quarter Monday against the Nuggets on the way to a 53-point night. After hitting five 3-pointers in the first 10 minutes of the game, he passed Chamberlain with a driving layup over JaVale McGee.
