Stephen Curry is the greatest shooter of all time, and he has recently won his fourth championship and his first Finals MVP. There's no doubt that this championship has improved Stephen Curry's legacy in the game.
Kendrick Perkins has recently claimed that Stephen Curry is now sitting at a table with all-time greats in Michael Jordan, LeBron James, Kobe Bryant, Shaquille O'Neal, Magic Johnson, and Larry Bird. Many fans disagreed with that claim, with some roasting Kendrick Perkins for saying Stephen Curry wouldn't win any titles in the next 4 years.
Steph Curry is officially sitting at the table with Jordan, Bron, Kobe, Shaq, Magic and Bird!!! Carry the hell on… #FinalsMVP
While Stephen Curry has accomplished a lot in the game, it seems as though some fans are still hesitant to put him among the best of the best. With that being said, there are definitely some, like Stephen A. Smith that have suggested that Stephen Curry is a top-10 player of all time.
"He’s a 3-time champion, 5 straight trips to the finals, alright, a 2-time league MVP, and oh, by the way, the greatest shooter god has ever created. It ain’t his fault he ain’t 7-1. And when Wilt was playing, he was damn near a foot taller than everybody he was going against. So how do you factor that in?
Steph Curry is 6-3. You got bigger, stronger, faster dudes guarding him all the time and there is nothing they can do about it. The dude is ridiculous.
Steph Curry is a threat the moment he steps past the half-court. Think about that. If you’re a defense, you almost can’t do zone. You almost have to extend yourself and go out and guard him which opens up the floor for everybody else cause this brother can pull up from 40. 40! He does it all the time.
If Stephen Curry does manage to win more championships in the future, it is quite possible that people will be more willing to accept the fact that his name should be mentioned with Michael Jordan and LeBron James.
It remains to be seen how the Golden State Warriors will do next season. With Stephen Curry at the helm though, they will have a chance to win it all once again, and if they do, Stephen Curry could re-shuffle the all-time rankings altogether.
