Stephen Curry has become one of the best NBA players in recent years, with plenty of people considering him the best of the best around the league. It’s not a secret that the Splash Brother is one of the biggest figures in the league, with some people doubting we’ll ever see a player as good as him.
Scottie Pippen recently stated this, claiming Curry is one player that we only get to see once in a lifetime. During Thursday’s edition of ESPN’s The Jump, Pippen discussed Curry’s career after he said he’d like to play six more seasons in the NBA, with Pippen claiming we’ll never see a player like him.
“I think this is truly a one-off,” Pippen said. “Unless he can force his son to go for all his records. It’s amazing, I mean you look at how this kid shoots the ball from behind the 3-point line, he shoots it like it’s a layup. There’s no restriction, he’s been a game-changer, you look at his threes attempts compared to Ray Allen and reality he’s getting three or five a game whereas Steph is probably getting 10 to 15 a game so I don’t see any players in the league that can really change this landscape unless him and Klay get on separate teams.”
Pippen is right with his claims. Curry, alongside Klay, changed the way the game is played, and it will be really hard to find another player that has that kind of impact in the NBA. Curry is planning to play at least six more seasons in the association, so we have to take advantage of that and enjoy his game while he’s still active.
