I disagreed above with Magic having had a better year and I'll disagree again now.

One of these is Curry 2017, one is Larry Bird 1986, and the other one is Magic Johnson 1987:

Morey had theories he borrowed from D'Antoni who could have borrowed them from Don Nelson. Unproven theories. What Curry did was show what could happen when they were applied to reality by someone capable of doing so.

With such a commanding showing Curry gave 3-point shooting and jumpshooting teams the legitimacy they previously lacked. The Warriors' success allowed Morey to go all in and gave D'Antoni's career which had been consigned to oblivion a new lease on life.

3-point shooting, the rise of defensive switching, and the fall in importance of the traditional big man are all trends that have followed in Curry's wake.
