Steph is amazing. He's the best shooter ever and will go down a top 20 player. He's far from the goat is all I'm saying.
He had his greatest individual Finals/Playoff game of his career with KD, Klay, Looney all injured. Raptors ran 2-3 guys at him on every possession and he still dropped 47/8/7.
Klay, Looney, Cousins, Iguodala were all playing hurt and sustained major injuries either in the Finals or leading up to it. Iggy shouldn't have even played in his condition, Looney was in terrible pain and Thompson injured and went out early in two of the 6 games, including missing one completely. Durant obviously only played like 12 minutes in that series as well.
That's 5 guys dealing with serious injuries. Steph still made it a close series but got little to no respect after it while people were ready to give Lebron Finals MVP in 2015 for taking 32 shots a game to score his 35 inefficient points lol.
