Stephen Curry continued filling his overcrowded trophy case on Thursday night, leading the Golden State Warriors to their fourth title over the last eight seasons and winning Finals MVP for the first time in his career. Team hardware and individual accolades, obviously, aren't the only way to measure a player's historical worth. Andre Iguodala believes his longtime teammate's latest accomplishments have crowned him anew regardless.

On the postgame championship podium, Iguodala went out of his way to tell reporters that Curry—if he wasn't already, of course—is now the greatest point guard to ever play in the NBA.

It's easy to fall victim to the moment in the afterglow of the NBA Finals.

The Warriors were euphoric even before the final buzzer sounded on their 103-90 victory. Curry openly wept on the TD Garden floor. Golden State broke out into a joyous “F*** you Draymond!” chant in the locker room. Multiple players, per modern custom, conducted their media availabilities wearing ski googles, fresh champagne still dotting the lenses.

Iguodala didn't need to be mentally or physically intoxicated to submit that Curry is peerless at point guard, though. That's a take he'd have been comfortable voicing well before Game 6, and rightfully so.

No one has ever played the game, let alone changed it, like Curry. He was one of the most decorated players in NBA history before 2021-22 tipped off, and on Thursday joined Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Magic Johnson, Michael Jordan, Tim Duncan and LeBron James as the only players to win four championships and two regular season MVPs.

There's just a single point guard on that exclusive list of all-timers, by the way. Whether or not you agree with Iguodala on Curry's place atop his positional hierarchy, what should be clear by now is that Johnson is the only floor general with a case to be above him.

Curry, a first-time and fully-deserving Finals MVP at 34 after winning his first championship seven years earlier, really is that good.
