i am a random guy on youtube
That aint even a question!
I like how this dude mentions that Curry best LeBron without KD but he doesn’t mention that Kevin love and kyrie were hurt during that series
Kyrie is way better, kyrie doesn’t flop after every shot he takes
More like top 5 biggest flopper and ball hogs in the league!

My list:
1. KD
2. Giannis
3. Steph
4. Kawhi
5. Harden
The Real Talk Show
KD, Bron, Steph, Giannis, Kawhi
Funny how KD goes down and the Warriors are still heavy favorites to win it all. Curry doesn't need KD to win.

As for Steph Curry, he is hook, line and sinker a top 2 player in the NBA right now. Apart from Tim Duncan Stephen is the least selfish basketball player of the Hall of Fame caliber that has ever played this game. Had he not agreed to play second fiddle to the ball hoggish Durant he might well be now number one. Whereas Tim Duncan was once referred to as Big Easy, Stephen can easily be thought of as Little Easy. The question remains, however, who is to round out the best duo. Giannis Antetokounmpo could be looked on as Big Clumsy just like Club-footed LBJ as Heavy Clumsy Crab Dribbler. Anthony Davis once declared himself to be the best player in the League, but as yet he's failed to substantiate this claim with anything. James Harden and Russell Westbrook have never even heard what teamwork is, while Kawhie Leonard can't hold a candle to Steph when it comes to Titles 1-3, MVPs 1 (Finals), Steph 2 RS, of which one awarded unanimously. Steph was also once the leading scorer.
But for his injury proneness Steph Curry would, just like Michael Jordan was, be in a class of his own.

Steph Curry is not top 5
Andreas Ryge
Curry been top 5 since 2016. People just get enamored with and blinded by tall dudes.
Robert James
Well said Sir! All great points.
Humboldt Fisher
AD better than Curry? Ha!!
Shakir Joseph
Can't say if he's top five. He's on a very STRONG team in a very WEAK conference. The top players CARRY weak or mediocre teams...Harden, Kawhi, Davis, Giannis and still the best LeBron.
Eduardo Rodriguez
SC is the best player ever played basketball
Will Cain is not messing around.. he's straight spitting facts... it's all true. Curry will not be fully appreciated till he's retired. He's always been a boss, it's never left.
May I say Steph has won playoff series against Kawhi, Anthony Davies, LeBron and KD. Names that are supposedly better than Steph. The only one in that list he hasn't beaten is Giannis but we all know Giannis is too inexperienced compared to curry. He's atleast a top 3 player imo.
Yes. Next question.
Jack Michens
He has got the same diction as Cowherd..
Ya Ya
Y’all SLEEP on James harden smh
