Chris Bosh’s bold comparison for Warriors superstar Stephen Curry
The comparisons for Golden State Warriors superstar Stephen Curry come from every angle. In reality, it’s hard to compare the 3-point sniper to anyone as he changed the way the game is played from beyond the arc. Former NBA champion Chris Bosh chimed in with a bold comparison based off what he has seen from Curry this year.
Appearing on ESPN’s “Get Up” and via NBC Sports, Bosh said this about the Warriors point guard:
“The way that he’s been playing the last month of the season has been very reminiscent of ’06 Kobe,” Bosh said.
Kobe’s 2006 Lakers team entered the postseason as the No. 7 seed that year and took the Phoenix Suns to the brink before falling in seven games. The stretch Bryant had in 2006 and during that series stands out in the minds of many, including Bosh.
Bosh claims he has never seen anything like what Curry does in the Warriors uniform:
“His shooting is unbelievable, I’ve never seen anything like it,” Bosh said of Curry. “He’s a master of his craft. Not only that, he’s very unselfish. He gets his teammates involved. You can tell guys love playing with him.”
Curry has put up MVP-type numbers for the Warriors this year, yet the award will still likely go to Nikola Jokic of the Denver Nuggets.
The NBA has to be salivating as the first year of their new play-in tournament format will be highlighted by a Warriors-Lakers matchup on Wednesday night at Staples Center. LeBron and Anthony Davis going up against Steph Curry for the No. 7 seed will be appointment television.
All the comparisons showered upon Curry are fine, but it’s worth recognizing and appreciating that he truly revolutionized the game with his 3-point capabilities that are still on display as he enters his mid-30s.
