Andre Iguodala is absolutely correct

High IQ player on the court

High IQ player off the court

When it's all said and done

Stephen Curry will go down as the 2nd greatest basketball player that has ever lived

There, I said it

Mama, there goes that man

Going to reserve judgement until I see what he does these finals.

Curry has played "bad" in what, 1 finals? Back in 2016 when he was coming off an injury (a series GSW should have won in 5).

I still don't know how great he is because of Durant. I know that he's the greatest shooter. All-time? Top 15-20. The run he's had so far WITH a nice finals gives me more to work with though.

best player in terms of what? head to head or best team player, or best player in achieving the goal?

i told you depends on your criteria.

I'd probably take Curry's peak over Magic if we are being honest.

You guys donít give Curry enough respect. Heís better than so many All time great players. He changed the game.

UH.. Durant is definitely in shambles.

Let's not forget Durant was playing amazing both rounds this year. Unstoppable. Every ****ing shot was going on for him. He was LETHAL.

How quick they forget.

I hope he leaves to get the credit he deserves.

from a reputation perspective, Curry will never be the second best for the simple reason that he is playing on a team with KD who won FMVPs ahead of him.

not even lebron had to add a superior player to the team JUST to win. that's just straight up weak ass move (I appreciate it's not his decision but visually that's what it looked like).

he valued winning rings more than his legacy or long term marketability. it is what it is.

Copy/paste this list and remove the names Steph is NOT better than. I want a list from you...reading this right now...that is only people Steph is better than. Clear? Ok...


Hakeem
Wilt
David Robinson
Larry Bird
Magic
Tim Duncan
Kobe
Lebron
Moses Malone
Doctor J
Bill Russell
Shaq
Oscar Robertson
Kareem
Jerry West
Charles Barkley
Karl Malone
Dirk
KG
Gary Payton
Nash
Bill Walton
Tmac
Kevin Durant

Just 25(ish) names that came to mind. Copy/paste it...remove the people better than Steph. Not gonna **** with you about it. I just want something to glance over and scoff at later.

David Robinson
Doctor J
Oscar Robertson
Jerry West
Charles Barkley
Karl Malone
Dirk
KG
Gary Payton
Nash
Bill Walton
Tmac
Kevin Durant

As of today. If the Warriors win the championship this year AND Curry secures a finals MVP then I'd pick him over Moses which would put him right within striking distance of top 10 territory.

In terms of impact on the offensive side of the ball he may just be the best ever..

I dont recall a player that could make teams double and triple him from 25-30 ft out.. That opens the fall floor for so many other players..

change ur username. Magic was a far better playoff performer than Steph and could impact the game through a much greater and wider array
