Scottie Pippen thinks there will never be another player like Stephen Curry

Chicago Bulls legend and NBA Hall of Famer Scottie Pippen thinks there will never be another player like Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry.

Curry is the greatest shooter of all time and has special ball-handling skills. The Warriors star shoots the 3-ball like it’s a layup, something Scottie Pippen says will never be replicated again.

“I think this is truly a one-off,” Pippen said on ESPN’s The Jump, via NBC Sports Bay Area. “Unless he can force his son to go after his records, no one is even going to have the DNA to even think about trying to capture this. It’s amazing, you look at how this kid shoots the ball from behind the 3-point line, he shoots it like it’s a layup. There’s no restriction. He’s been a game-changer. You look at his threes attempted compared to Ray Allen, and Ray Allen was probably getting three to five a game, whereas Steph is probably getting 10 to 15 a game. So, I don’t see any players in the league that can really change this landscape unless him and Klay get on separate teams.”

Curry has been in the NBA since 2009. He has spent his entire career with the Warriors and will almost certainly retire with the franchise.

A three-time champion and two-time MVP, Curry has career averages of 23.5 points, 4.5 rebounds and 6.6 assists with the Warriors while shooting 47.7 percent from the field, 43.6 percent from beyond the arc and 90.5 percent from the free-throw line.
