If I told you Steph Curry has made more 3-pointers in the last 2 and a half seasons than Larry Bird made in his entire career, would you believe me? You should, because that’s actually the case.
Bird is apparently partial to shooter and is fond of Curry’s game. In fact, if you ask the Hall of Famer, he views Steph Curry as the best player in the game today.
“I think he loves Steph Curry,” Larry Bird said. “But if you walk in any gym, if there are kids in there, they’re all shooting 3-pointers. That’s the way it was when I walked in gyms years ago. I don’t see anything wrong with it.
“I just think Steph Curry is probably right now our best player and what a champion. He (Jackson) said `what a champion.’ That team out there is a real champion. Because if you win a championship and then come out and go 28-1, that’s pretty special.”
