It's funny that it was Dahntay Jones, a dude we've never heard of and who sat on the bench his whole (very short) career, making the comment that Steph's "not a top ten player". lmao That's just pure hating 100%. Jones was like a bottom 10 player in the NBA. Just about EVERY player in the NBA is better than Dahntay Jones.

if the shooters in the 90s were given the same liberty as today. We wouldve seen outrageous attempts too but fg percentage would be in the low 30s because the game wasnt tailor made for finesse type players.

Yea if you shoot as many 3s of course you gonna avg that many pts. Curry 3pa are nearly double all sharpshooters

Meh. Steph elevated his numbers in the 2015 Finals over his 2015 MVP regular season, and because he had one bad shooting game (in six games) people say he didn't deliver. By any possible meaningful metric, Steph was the most valuable Warrior in the 2015 Finals (but if you were willing to give it to someone from the losing team, LeBron would've gotten it). Iggy was a novelty vote, not a serious piece of evidence about Steph's performance. And Steph's 2017 and 2018 Finals were also first rate. It's only 2016, when he spent half the series in foul trouble and 1/3 of the playoffs too injured to play, that he under-performed in the Finals.

Did y'all catch that. Max said Kyrie Irving is 4 years younger than Steph Curry. Then he said that kyrie was better. Now let's switch the names. KD and LeBron so by max's narrative that means KD is better than LeBron.

Kyrie will never be able to catch Curry . I agree Curry chocked in 2016 finals but look the Western Conference Finals he came back from 3-1 deficits and Won it . With Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook In OKC . Remember the Game when he just pulled up from just taking one step from half court and hit the game winner . Unanimous MVP for a reason . Curry won't age quickly because he is a Shooter , Ball Handler and a Good enough passer . His shooting won't age , his ball handling will bit age , his passing ability will not age , the only thing that will age will be his quickness on the floor and athleticism . But will have quickest jumper and best jumper in NBA history for ever . Kyrie just showed up in 1 Finals and that's it . Curry showed up for 2 seasons straight and won MVP in those 2 seasons without Durant . Let me tell you Golden State Warriors does not play at their best in regular season after Durant joined them. Kyrie cannot lead a team to 73 wins or even close , Curry can and he did it in 2016 season . Max just shut your mouth Curry was the best player in his team in 2016 Finals , Kyrie Wasn't . Kyrue did not have as much pressure on him as Curry had . Also Curry came back from injury in playoffs . After reading this just don't say that Kyrie is better , because you know that he isn't .

Kyrie simply a better player. Kyrie shoots 3 close to him and you can't defend kyrie. Kyrie can do it all .You can run a 2-3 zone and with role players stop curry. You have seen it in the match up with Golden State and San Antonio. No matter how great his shooting is his shooting is never always on a day to day basis great. One day he can shoot 60-70 percent through the field and the next it wil be 40-50 . Kyrie doesn't have that same issue

400 3's in a single season. Back to back league MVP. only player in the history (Jordan,Kobe,Magic,Bird,LeBron Russell,Kareem,Wilt and all) of the NBA game UNANIMOUSLY voted MVP. I submit that Steph Curry probably would still be stacking up MVP's if he had not made room for KD. Love Kyrie, but absolutely no comparison.

Curry is far superior because he is a team player. Irving will probably never win another title because he is a selfish player. Steph wouldn't have walked away from playing with Lebron, because he knows it takes a team of stars to win.

I Max is right. In Game 4 a few weeks ago against Cleveland, KD was feeding the ball to Curry willing him to win the MVP and when Curry shot up to 37, he couldn't buy a shot. If Curry had hit 45-50 he probably would have got the MVP. But the pressure of the MVP caused Steph to tighten up in the 4th and thats without any real defense on him. Imagine if the game was on the line. KD hit the pressure shots in crunch time during the season and so he deserved the MVP. Curry could not hit the crunch time shots for MVP with little or no defense in the 4th quarter of game 4 . Max is right.

You take him off the Cavs and they are still the same team in rankings. You take IT off the Celtics and they have the same record. Then he gets injured and the Celtics are the same In the standings. Terry Rozier is showing that he is the least valuable player in Boston. Curry can’t be replaced by any player in the league. Kyrie is an expendable piece. Kyrieplaceable.

The answer will always be no. Kyrie, if he isn't already, will go down as a top 5 (maybe top 3 or 2) finisher at the basket of all time. Dude is absurd and he has definitely gotten better with his shot. Dude is absolutely a superstar. Not only is Curry the greatest shooter of all time, he literally changed the game of basketball. Not only did he do that, he still has more of an impact just by presence on the floor than anybody in the league. You have to pick him up at half court and worry about him from near half court. That spreads the defense out having to cover a whole half court rather than normally just from the 3 point line and under. That is why them moving the ball the way San Antonio has the past decade or two is at a whole other level. There just isn't anybody in the league that forces you as an opponent to do that. So most of their games between the two guys are pretty neck and neck, Kyrie edging out in a few things, but when you have to factor in Curry being the greatest shooter and the impact just being on the floor has it's not a fair comparison.

Heres to and the argument about being a closer Curyy is not a good closer Kyrie is the best closer than curry But the reason why steph curry is not a closer is because he didnt need to...... Do you need to close the game when you have a 20 lead to the other team... You need to defend it sure but curry is demoralizing teams because of his three points shot
STATS DONT LIE 5 oy oldin
This season played 51 games and only made 10 games over 50% from 3point line. JUST 10 GAMES. 35 games under 40%... So basically he had 35 really bad games, 10 great games, and 6 normal games.

Because of Curry's OFF BALL skills...u have to CHASE HIM to hell and back. He NEVER stops moving. U will be exhausted trying to chase him, guard him and then score on him. That takes a level of energy most players (guards) just don't have. Advantage : CURRY. Kyrie will always be #2 to the CHEF.
