NBA Analyst Ben Simmons made a case for Stephen Curry as the Greatest Offensive player of All-Time, puts him ahead of Michael Jordan.
Stephen Curry has been on a flurry this season. His form this April has been sensational. Curry has been averaging 39.9 points per game in the 7 games he has played this month. He led the Warriors to a 4-3 record and propelled them to the 9th spot.
Curry recently overtook Wilt Chamberlain for the Warriors’ All-Time leading points scorer, with his 53 points against the Denver Nuggets.
He continued his hot streak against the Thunder the last night, as he scored a quick 42 points in 3 quarters, going 11/16 from 3s. He has improved his season average to 30.7 and is very close to overtaking Bradley Beal(31.0) for his second-ever scoring title.
Ben Simmons calls Stephen Curry a better scorer than Michael Jordan
Stephen Curry has been a nightmare for opponents this season, and it has not gone unnoticed. NBA Analyst and author Ben Simmons recently made the case for the ‘Baby Faced Assassin’ as the greatest offensive player of all time.
In the latest episode of his ‘Thinking Basketball’ podcast, Simmons made the same claim. He built off of what he read a Reddit user ‘can_wien07‘.
Jordan was one of the most gifted scorers and one of the fiercest competitors the league has seen. Even though Jordan wasn’t consistent with his 3s, he always found a way to score. He is one of the all-time leading scorers for a reason.
The King, even though he hasn’t been known to be the best scorer, but his consistency has put him as one of the best scorers. Stephen Curry has been performing at a higher level this season, and with the form they are in, the Dubs might make it to the 8th spot. They have had their fair share of struggles, however, getting to the playoffs in this difficult year would be a silver lining for the Warriors.
