Warriors’ Stephen Curry responds to Michael Jordan saying he’s not yet a Hall of Famer
The two two-time MVP recently addressed statements made by “His Airness”, where he claimed that Curry “is not yet MVP worthy” despite the impressive list of accomplishments he compiled throughout his 10-year NBA career.
“I think I’m good, but then I’m never complacent,” Curry said in an interview with Full Size Run’s Matt Welty for Sole Collector (via Complex).
“I know I have more to prove to myself. When you hear a guy like that who’s the greatest of all time, it’s kind of funny. Since we’ve been on this stage, we’ve heard a lot of retired guys chiming in on this generation of basketball player and evaluating talent and saying their generation was better and all that. It’s a great conversation for the fans to get in on. I know I’m in good shape for that, but I still have a lot to prove to myself.”
Widely considered as one the greatest ever to don the Warriors jersey, the 31-year-old Curry is a three time-NBA champion, two-time Most Valuable Player winner, and a six-time All-Star.
The Davidson College product also has also nabbed several First-Team and All-NBA Second-Team citations, to go along with a scoring and a steals title in 2016.
He is also on pace to break the NBA’s all-time career 3-point field goals made, closing in on Reggie Miller and Ray Allen.
Portland Trail Blazers guard CJ McCollum, meanwhile, also reacted to Jordan’s apparent slight, suggesting that the current Charlotte owner might have been “loaded” during the interview.
