There is no denying the fact that Stephen Curry is one of the greatest shooters in the history of the NBA. His shooting form and impeccable ball-handling ability have made him the most feared guard of modern times. This season, he has used his skills to good effect in a Warriors side that is in the midst of a major transition,
However, some critics believe that Steph does not receive the attention and respect he deserves on a regular basis. They believe that the league is obsessed with LeBron James and Joel Embiid, just because they are big men and can dictate the flow of the game.
TV analyst Emmanuel Acho portrayed the same emotion on a post-game show. He said, “Steph Curry’s greatness is drastically underappreciated. I don’t care about his stats or the notes. The greatest thing Stephen Curry has ever done in not being unanimous MVP, it is willingly and selflessly taking a back seat so that Kevin Durant can shine. He has been criticized for this very thing in the past.”
He continued, “He never won an NBA finals MVP. That is what Curry gets criticized for, but he willingly did it. I will put Steph curry at least in the last decade’s greatest players list. I would put him right behind LeBron on that list.”
Stephen Curry for MVP?
This season, Chef Curry has been on the fringes of the MVP conversation. If the Golden State Warriors manage to make the playoffs, then suddenly his name will prop up in every TV debate about the MVP award. The 33-year-old has single-handedly carried the side this year when nobody else stepped up to the plate.
For the past week, Curry is averaging more points than any other in the NBA. He has stitched together nine straight games of 30+point scores and is showing no signs of stopping. At this rate, his performances will be enough to propel the Dubs to the playoffs.
The Golden State Warriors are ninth in the Western Conference standings. At the moment, they are not in contention for the playoff spots. However, they have a four-game winning streak and will look forward to building upon that ahead of the postseason.
