A couple of weeks ago, Michael Jordan fueled a huge controversy by claiming Stephen Curry wasn’t Hall-of-Fame-bound just yet, claiming he’s still got a ways to go before making it to the big stage.
Obviously, fans, media, and even Steve Kerr had a lot to say about Jordan’s claims, while Stephen Curry simply decided to take the high road on the matter.
However, when Curry joined Complex to talk about his new signature sneakers and enjoy a good old game of HORSE, he couldn’t avoid the subject anymore and was forced to speak up:
“It was a funny thing, you know you always have an initial reaction to say ‘yo, I think I’m good’. Then I’m like ‘hey I got more to prove to myself’, but when you here a guy like that who’s the greatest of all times it’s kind of funny.
I think while we’ve been on this stage we’ve heard a lot of retired guys chirming in on this generation of basketball players and kind of evaluating talent and saying their generation was better and all that. It’s a great conversation for the fans to kind of get in on, but I know I’m in good shape for that, but I still have a lot to prove to myself,” Steph told Complex’s Matt Welty.
Everybody’s entitled to their own opinion, but numbers don’t lie, and I think we can all agree that Steph’s numbers say he’s a Hall of Famer.
Curry has certainly done more than enough to be worthy of a spot in the Naismith Memorial Hall of Fame, winning back-to-back MVPs and three Championships over a span of five seasons.
Also, he’s considered to be the greatest shooter to ever set foot on an NBA hardwood, so this was most likely just another hot take by the best player ever.
