Video: Stephen Curry doesn’t send shoes to haters, jokes that he might have to send pair to Michael Jordan

Stephen Curry, Michael Jordan

Last month, Michael Jordan said that Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry is not a Hall of Famer just yet.

Whether Jordan was speaking in literal terms (because Curry isn’t literally in the Hall of Fame at this point) or saying that Curry doesn’t have the resume to make the Hall is up for debate, but knowing Jordan, he probably meant the former.

Curry responded to Jordan’s jab during an interview with Matt Welty of The Sole Collector, basically calling the GOAT a hater:

So, while Curry may have shrugged off Jordan’s comments, he might be a bit annoyed by MJ’s subtle criticism.

Of course, at the moment, Steph has bigger fish to fry.

The two-time MVP is out indefinitely while recovering from surgery to repair a broken hand he suffered against the Phoenix Suns earlier this season, adding to the Warriors’ misery.

Some have speculated that Curry could be sidelined for the remainder of the 2019-20 campaign, but Golden State head coach Steve Kerr has said that Curry will play when he is healthy.

In four games this season, Curry has averaged 20.3 points, 6.5 assists, 5.0 rebounds and 1.3 steals over 28 minutes per game while shooting just 40.9 percent from the floor, 24.3 percent from 3-point range and 100 percent from the free-throw line.

Curry is not used to losing, as the Dubs have made the NBA Finals each of the last five years, winning three championships during that span.

However, with Kevin Durant gone, Klay Thompson out with a torn ACL and Stephen Curry now on the shelf, the Warriors might have to get used to doing some losing for the rest of the year.
