fact i put myself in contention and was able to handle it and be in the final group and my third major in my entire career is obviously really exciting. >> bright future ahead. stephen curry is 19 points away from passing the legendary wilt chamberlain for number one on the warriors all time scoring list. can he do that tomorrow night against denver at chase center. it began in 2009 at oracle arena for curry. here's some throwback footage, pick and roll action, bucket number one for steph. he scored 14 points on 7 of 12 shooting and fast forward 12 years later and steph sits on the doorstep of history passing wilt for the most points all time in franchise history. nchii steph recently asked about the significance of breaking that record possibly as soon as tomorrow night. >> it's surreal to be honest. i mean i don't know how many
years he played here, but he's got a lot of buckets obviously and his legend the holy, but wearing a warriors uniform and having been here my whole career, it's just crazy, just a wild thought in general to know where it started and all this happened. obviously got a lot more to do, but that is a pretty significant milestone god willing when it happens, i'll appreciate that moment. the nhl trade line is tomorrow afternoon. the sharks may face a tough decision, patrick marleau four games away from passing gordie howe for most games played in nhl history, but he also might be the most tradeable player, playing 21 of his 23 years in teal while owning nearly every franchise record and should break that record in a sharks
sweater. could they deal him a week away from history? we'll find out very, very soon. hey, did you see this? the pride of chico and legendary cal quarterback aaron rodgers in the middle of a two- week run as guest host on "jeopardy." the super bowl champ told me he grew up watching "jeopardy" in northern california with grandparents. that traditionenned throughout his nfl continued throughout his nfl career in green bay. >> there was obviously some moments where i could add in my own dry sense of humor and hopefully people enjoy that. there's a couple moments i think people will really enjoy from the two weeks. >> reporter: why are contestants so bad at sports? you see a lot of them that category goes bad. >> one of the questions seemed like a layup to me and it was actually related to my team and it wasn't -- and nobody got it. so it allowed for a nice little moment there. >> and you can catch aaron
