Remember when Stephen Curry was somewhat of an enigma coming out of Davidson? There were strong (and relatively valid) questions pondering if Curry could even make it in the league, let alone become a starting caliber NBA player.
But has Curry not only become a starter, he’s become a star who is currently teetering on the edge of super-stardom.
He’s also apparently the second best clutch shooter in NBA history, this according to Curry himself who listed himself among legends known for their late game heroics:
Alipour: So let’s say there are five seconds left in the game, one shot to win it all, and you get to draw up the final play in some Space Jam–type world. On the floor is Ray Allen, Jordan, Kobe, Reggie Miller and you. Who’s your No. 1 option?
Curry: Jordan’s No. 1. I’m No. 2. Then you go Ray, then Reggie, then Kobe. Three-pointer or not, same answer.
While Curry has no doubt shown some impressive clutch tendencies recently, that’s some pretty rarefied air to put yourself in – confident or not.
