Steph Curry has enjoyed a legendary career. The Golden State Warriors guard has fundamentally changed how basketball is played at every level, prompting teams to search for elite shooting talent. With four NBA championships, two MVP awards and one Finals MVP award, Curry’s dominance is unquestioned.
Curry’s dominance isn’t lost on anyone, either. The veteran guard is consistently talked about as an all-time great. In a recent article by HoopsHype, Curry is listed as the 13th-best player in league history. Curry’s scoring ability, championship know-how and overall impact were factors in his being ranked so high among elite talent.
Here’s what HoopsHype had to say about the 35-year-old superstar:
“Stephen Curry changed the way the game is played, as now, basically every player on the floor wants to shoot threes, and needs to be able to hit them for your offense to keep up with modern scoring,” HoopsHype wrote. “Curry’s a wizard not only as a shooter, but his playmaking deserves more credit than it receives. The future Hall-of-Famer out of Davidson is already the greatest shooter ever – and it’s not particularly close.”
Curry is currently gearing up for his 15th NBA season and will likely have his eyes on adding to his championship haul. The Warriors have rebuilt their rotation this summer, adding multiple new faces, including veteran ball-handler Chris Paul.
Nevertheless, the Warriors and NBA fans worldwide will be expecting another memorable season from one of the best players of his generation and, according to HoopsHype, of all time.
