Stephen Curry broke Wilt Chamberlain's all-time scoring record for the Golden State Warriors' franchise, and he now stands as the undisputed best scorer in Golden State Warriors history. Stephen Curry has led 3 Golden State Warriors teams to NBA championships and revolutionized the game itself with his jumper that seems to be automatic from 3PT range.
Aside from being the greatest Warriors player of all time, Stephen Curry is without question the best shooter in history as well. With those two things in mind, the question begs to be asked: where does Stephen Curry finish in the all-time NBA rankings. Recently, prominent NBA analyst Kendrick Perkins has suggested that Stephen Curry could finish in the top-10 position in terms of all-time players.
Stephen Curry is without a doubt one of the top 2 point guards of all time. He has 3 championships under his belt and has managed to win against a player that is widely considered one of the top 3 players of all-time, LeBron James. Stephen Curry deserves the respect, as he has proven everything that there is to prove in the game. At this point, all Stephen Curry needs to do is continue winning.
Perhaps the Golden State Warriors didn't know that they were drafting a superstar when they first got Curry. Some scouts certainly didn't. But they gave him the framework to succeed, and Curry in turn led the franchise to insane success during his prime. Stephen Curry has a case to be top-10 all-time, though not all basketball fans will agree. Regardless of one's opinion, there is one thing certain: we will not see a shooter like Stephen Curry in a very long time.
