The other night Stephen Curry scored 16 of his 28 points in the third quarter to take the Warriors home by beating the Brooklyn Nets 114-98. Curry’s exceptional form on the court is visible in every game. So the question is whether he is the best, even better than Michael Jordan?
According to Bleacher Report, the reigning MVP superstar, Curry is aiming to topple Michael Jordan as the best player of all time.
In a recent interview with the ESPN magazine, Curry says, “It’s a high mountain to climb, but I’m pretty motivated to take on the challenge,” said Curry of surpassing Jordan as the best ever. “Whatever that means, however you got on that mountain, why not try to climb it? And do it in your own way.”
Sources suggest that it is like adding fuel to the fire. The debate is on and comparisons have been made between the Jordan led 1995-96 Bulls’ Team and the Golden State Warriors’ 2015-16 team.
When Curry was asked whether he wants to top Jordan, he replies, “Yeah. Why else would I be playing? You want to be the best you can be. And if the best you can be is better than him, then why not? That’s good motivation.”
So does he considers himself to be the best player in the World right now? Or did he try to undermine Jordan’s contribution to the game? Well, he certainly has an answer to that. He states, “When I’m on the floor, I believe I am, for sure. I don’t get into why I’m better than such and such. But that’s my motivation when I work.”
Curry led the Golden State Warriors to 22-0 already in their NBA 2015-16 campaign. They will certainly aim for the record 73-9 to make history.
Speaking about the best basketball player of all time, it is certainly up to the fans to decide who should get the honor.
