Curry is already arguably the best shooter of all time. 2nd in career 3pt%, most 3's in a season, most 3's to this point in his career by a long shot, and only 25?! The speed of that release coupled with his ability to shoot off the dribble is something that guys like Steve Kerr (the highest 3pt% of all time) or even Ray Allen lacked (not nearly as good of a shooter as curry off the dribble). Its hard to argue in terms of legacy because the warriors have only recently become relevant but at least in terms of 3 pt shooting he will go down as maybe the best 3 pt shooter of all time.
Check out Curry's career numbers compared to Allen and Miller's through their first four seasons:
Games 3P 3P% FG% FT% PPG
Stephen Curry 257 644 45% 47% 90% 19.2
Ray Allen 296 497 39% 44% 87% 18.1
Reggie Miller 320 421 38% 50% 87% 18.4
Better in every category except 1 (reggie miller FG%) and in less games than both
...and did I mention that Curry is a POINT GUARD not a SHOOTING GUARD???
....oh and wasnt there a lockout recently reducing the number of games for curry to play?
