Stephen Curry is one of the best players in the NBA right now. In fact, he has been a contender for that position ever since he became a superstar back in around 2015. Since then, Steph has only gotten better, and his resume is proof of that.
Over the last eight seasons, he has helped the Golden State Warriors reach six NBA Finals. And in those six appearances, Steph led the Dubs to four NBA titles. In each of those championship runs, Curry was arguably the best player on the respective teams.
He won his most recent ring in the 2021-22 NBA season. It was a fantastic effort by Curry, and as a result, he also won the first NBA Finals MVP of his career. As a result, it's understandable that this title meant a lot to him. So much so that he recently claimed that he holds his 2022 ring more valuable than the titles that he won in 2017 and 2018.
Looking at Steph's phenomenal career, one would think that he's a 100% lock to make it to the Basketball Hall of Fame, right? Well, that's not the case.
Chris Paul Surprisingly Has A Higher Probability To Make The HOF Than Stephen Curry
No, we are not joking. As per Basketball Reference, among the current active players in the league, they believe only LeBron James, Kevin Durant, and Chris Paul have a 100% probability of making it to the Hall of Fame.
Surprisingly, they believe Curry has a HOF probability of 99.9%, which is lesser than Chris Paul.
Of course, NBA fans were taken aback after seeing this, and they had mixed reactions to this news. Here are some of the best reactions that we could find below the tweet:
It's obvious that both Curry and Paul are great players. When their career ends, they will make the Basketball Hall of Fame.
But the shocking part wasn't that CP3 was given a 100% probability; instead, it was the fact that Curry didn't have a 100% probability. At the end of the day, it could be a simple error on Basketball Reference's part, but we will never know for sure.
