Stephen Curry is the most influential player of his generation and it's not even close. Don't get me wrong, with that I don't mean that he's the best player of his generation - although he's definitely top 5 at worst.

Curry changed the way the game is played. He helped establish that run-and-gun offense, with young players pulling up from the logo to try and make it to the league as he did. Whether you like it or not, that's not up for debate right now, we're just stating facts.

Yet, people constantly try to demeanor Stephen Curry's accomplishments in the league. People said he shouldn't have won his first MVP, then claimed that he had a cakewalk when he took it up a notch for his second award.

He led his team to 5 NBA Finals (2 of them without Kevin Durant) and won 3 rings, yet people claim he got carried by Andre Iguodala even though Stephen Curry was the leading scorer for the Warriors in that series. That's just how petty people are to him.

Even so, history will grant Steph his place as one of the greatest point guards of all time and if you don't take our word for it, just remember that he was drawing comparisons to Michael Jordan back in the 2015-16 campaign:

The Golden State Warriors were just humiliating opposing teams at a historical rate, even taking down the almighty Chicago Bulls record for most wins in the regular season (72), although they ended up losing in the Finals to LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers.

You may or may not like Stephen Curry as a person or as a player but you just can't deny his greatness and impact on the game.
