The Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry has picked his All-Time starting 5 and is filled with some of the best legends this game has seen. Curry recently joined ‘All The Smoke’, a podcast headlined by former teammate Matt Barnes and Stephen Jackson, where he left some good things to discuss.
When he was asked about his All-Time starting lineup, the point guard was quick to name his first three players but had to think long and hard about his frontcourt additions.
“Magic [Johnson], Michael [Jordan], Larry [Bird], uhhh … oooh … wait … Shaq,” said Curry. “Let me make sure I got my positions: Magic [at] PG, Michael [at] shooting guard, Larry [at] small forward, and power forward? … Tim Duncan,” the two-time MVP said.
He tried to mix things a little bit with stars from the ‘80s and ‘90s. Magic, Jordan, and Bird are without any hesitation the most famous players of the ’80s as their duels were something to remember during that time. As for the 90s, Steph picked two of the most dominant frontcourt players ever in Shaquille O’Neal and Tim Duncan.

Curry refused to name himself at the point guard position, urging Barnes to ask him again once he’s done with his NBA career. It’s interesting to see that he didn’t name LeBron James, one of the most influential players of all time and Curry’s archrival for the past 5 or 6 years.
It won’t be a shock to see this guy in plenty of All-Time starting lineups when his career is over. He’s already getting praised for his game, with NBA legend Allen Iverson putting Curry among his top five players of all time.
