Default How similar are Curry and Kobe?

Both of them started their careers with 3 beta rings, unable to outperform in the Finals.

Kobe took six trips to the finals to get his first MVP (1/6). Curry is currently on four trips (0/4) without a single MVP.

They both choked the big time game 7 Finals with 6/24 shooting (Kobe) and 6/19 shooting (Curry).

Kobe has 1 regular-season MVP, Curry has 2. Kobe has two scoring titles, and Curry has 1...



Also: They both blew a 3-1 lead.

Besides the fact that both struggle with the more gritty physical East Coast style ball? Nothing.

two players who got routinely carried to rings.


when curry wins a finals MVP then he can brag about being better than a kyrie level player.

Even with all the similar comparisons mentioned? Their careers are insanely and nearly identical. I challenge you to find two other players more similar.

kobe has the edge because at least kobe had a case for being the best when he won with gasol.


curry needs a finals MVP if he wins this year because kd getting three in a row over him is a bad look...

Both of them held the nba all time record for 3pt field goals made in a game? If I’m wrong please correct me I’m too lazy to look this up.
