Yes, the same man who said a jump-shooting team could never win an NBA championship, the same man who predicted the Trail Blazers would represent the Western Conference in the 2019 NBA Finals (that one's still up in the air), drew the ire of many basketball fans Monday night when he listed his top five players currently in the NBA ...

... and left Curry off it.

His list?

Now, to be fair, it'd be tough to leave any of those guys off the list. But perhaps it shouldn't come as a surprise that he ignored Curry, the most diminutive -- physically, at least -- of the bunch.

Not that it matters, really. This isn't close to the craziest claim Chuck has ever made, and if you're expecting him to stop, well, don't hold your breath.
