Michael Jordan fueled a huge controversy yesterday when he claimed Stephen Curry isn't Hall of Fame material yet, even though he admitted that he's a great player.
Fans from all over the world started debating on social media whether Curry had done enough to make it to the Hall of Fame, with most people claiming he's more than worthy of being inducted.
Notably, Steve Kerr naturally had his point guard's back, throwing a little jab at Jordan when asked about such controversial claims:
"I think Michael has his own version of the Hall of Fame. It's in his own head. So whatever that is', that's what it is", Kerr told Logan Murdock of NBC Sports.
Kerr didn't enjoy Jordan's comments but fired back at him with a smile on his face, as, at the end of the day, there's no bad blood between the former teammates.
Also, it wouldn't be crazy to think Jordan holds his own standards to see who's worthy of a spot in the Hall of Fame and who's not, him being the greatest player in the history of the game.
Moreover, this isn't the first time Jordan has made some very hot takes, so Magic Johnson tried to explain why he said what he said about Steph:
“Everyone relax. We know Steph Curry is a future Hall of Famer…Michael Jordan couldn’t say it because he would get fined by the league,” Johnson tweeted.
Johnson's explanation makes a lot of sense considering Jordan is still the face of the Charlotte Hornets and he could be fined for tampering if he's caught lauding a player with ties with North Carolina.
At the end of the day, everyone's entitled to its own opinion, but when you talk about a 3-time NBA Champion, 2 time MVP, Scoring Champion and the greatest shooter of all times, there's just no way he misses the Hall of Fame.
