Reggie Miller compares him teaming up with Larry Bird, Mark Price to Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, and Kevin Durant
With the Golden State Warriors now leading the Cleveland Cavaliers 3-0 in the NBA Finals they have showcased their true potential and have dominated in the postseason. Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and Kevin Durant have also proven that three scorers as good as them can co-exist playing alongside one another, without sacrificing much from their natural games.
That said, it does not come as a surprise that they’ve been receiving a lot of comparison to some of the great teams and players from the past. The latest one to weigh in on it is Reggie Miller, who recently appeared on The Dan Patrick Show. He talked about having three of the best shooters on one team and compared it to him playing together with Larry Bird and Mark Price during his prime. He also added at the 14:30 mark that he thinks the only thing that can prevent the Dubs from winning the championship in the next four or five years is if another “super team” is formed to challenge them.
This definitely says a lot about the level of talent the three have, as Miller is no stranger to greatness when it comes to shooting. He is widely considered one of the best shooters and clutch performers of all time, as are Bird and Price, who have both knocked down shots from the perimeter and beyond the arc with a lot of efficiency during their stellar careers.
The comparisons are expected to continue, especially if the Warriors go on to win the title this year and in the coming years. However, it remains to be seen how long they can keep their core intact as well, and how hungry they’ll remain after winning championships together. But if the appeal of more rings is already enough for them to stay put, not only will it be bad news for the rest of the competition, they may also go down as the best shooting trio in the history of the game.
