When you think of players who have changed the game dramatically, perhaps none has been more of an impact than Warriors star Steph Curry.
One of his biggest rivals, Portland security guard Damian Lillard, seems to agree, as he pointed out on the Dan Patrick Show.
“Steph has two MVPs, one unanimous MVP, consecutive titles, three overall titles, the resume is there. I think if you asked 10 socialmediagossips, seven or eight of them would probably come back and say Steph is right behind Magic in the way, how he changed the game and the excitement with his style of play, “Lillard told Dan Patrick on Thursday.
Curry’s three-point shooting has revolutionized the game to the point where long-distance shooting has become its central theme more than ever.
Nowadays it has become crucial for players to have a certain level of shooting skills, even large players who have traditionally been paint-oriented scorers.
It’s Curry’s game that inspired the likes of Lillard, Buddy Hield, Trae Young, and even LaMelo Ball to expand their own reach.
So, love him or hate him, it’s perfectly clear that Stephen Curry is one of the most impactful players basketball has ever seen. For that alone he deserves an extraordinary amount of credit.
