Andre Iguodala was actually referring to Stephen Curry as 2nd-best point guard ever, not 2nd-best player ever
Golden State Warriors small forward Andre Iguodala was actually referring to Stephen Curry as the second-best point guard ever, not the second-best player in NBA history behind Chicago Bulls legend Michael Jordan.
“He’s the second-best ever.” — Andre Iguodala
To be clear, Andre was calling Curry the second-best point guard ever. Which is why no one is surprised by another Curry playoff moment. https://t.co/GLLR9XaSxS

Los Angeles Lakers icon Magic Johnson is universally recognized as the greatest point guard in league history. The five-year run Curry has been on with the Warriors has put him at the top of the pantheon of point guards. Curry has won two MVPs, three titles and established himself as the best shooter we have ever seen in NBA history.
The Warriors are going to be playing in their fifth straight NBA Finals in June. Ever since Kevin Durant got hurt in Game 5 of the second round against the Houston Rockets, Curry has taken his game to another level. The sharpshooter is averaging 35.8 points since KD went down while shooting 46.6 percent from the field, 41.7 percent from beyond the arc and 95.3 percent from the free-throw line.
The only thing left Curry needs on his résumé is a Finals MVP. Andre Iguodala won the Finals MVP in 2014 and Durant has won the last two. This could be the year that Curry finally wins it. The Warriors are once again playing through Curry and he’s not disappointing.
