Default Andrew Bogut Calls Steph Curry "The Best Player In The World"

“We (the Warriors) peaked pretty quickly. For us to go from the second round (of the playoffs in 2013) to first-round elimination (in 2014) and (Warriors coach Steve) Kerr comes in and wins a championship, nobody expected that. People thought it was going to be (the Warriors) having your battles, maybe go second round, then conference finals and lose. But we got there. That’s sport, man. They saw a vision where they wanted to get one of the best players in the world (in Durant), and they already had the best player in the world, and that’s the way it goes.”

Bogut was one of the best defenders in the league for many years due to his bball iq

He is a basketball genius

really depends what you define as best. As of right now I would say he is the best when you consider a teams overall potential for success assuming they have all the right pieces. That kind of offensive power in a proper team setting is deadly as evidenced by the last 2 seasons. Basketball is all about winning chips, so I don't see how you could define the best any other way.

Another category would be the most all rounded player, which is where you would get the Lebrons and the Leonards, that doesn't mean they are the best though because as I have said before, its all about the peak potential of a team being built around your skillset.

People are too basic to differentiate when they claim such statements though. Either way, he is clearly the best offensive player in the world.

My idea of the best player is the best combination of both. LeBron can take literally any team to a 50 win season, and you don't need to get many great pieces to make the team great. People blamed LeBron for losing to GSW in 2015. People let curry off the hook the very moment he loses Draymond Green or an aging center. Levels.

curry will go down as the most disrespected star the league has ever had. Got to be one of few players that peaked waaaaaaay later in his career than most people do. I never saw curry being much more than a sg in a pg's body that would stuggle to defend and get to the rim but still be able to avg 20 plus a game because of the volume of shots he would take. Never saw him becoming what he has and I'm sure many people didn't as well.

Really, dude was voted the first unanimous MVP in league history, and he's the most disrespected star the league has ever seen?

Lmao, it may have been an asterisk, but atleast Curry didn't have to join a 73 win team to win a title.


Anyway, guys like Bron, Jordan, and Kobe will be celebrated while Curry and KD will just be looked at as beta chokers.
