In this postseason run, Chef Curry has been doing a phenomenal job in leading this somewhat inexperienced pack. The 2-time MVP has averaged a solid 25.9 points, 6.2 assists, and 4.9 rebounds so far in the 2022 playoffs.
Recording 23.8/6.6/7.4 against Luka Doncic and co., Steph managed to win the Western Conference Finals MVP honor, adding the inaugural Earvin “Magic” Johnson Trophy to his cabinet.

NBA Twitter debates what winning another ring means for the legacy of Stephen Curry
As Steph sits 4 games away from winning yet another title, and possibly winning his first-ever Finals MVP, NBA Twitter debates what the 4th ring on his resume means for The Baby-Faced Assassin’s legacy.
A Twitter user believed that Curry would replace Larry Bird on the top 10 player conversation if the former wins a 4th title.
Larry Bird might have to be moved out of top 10 if Curry wins another ring

There were some who agreed with this take and some who didn’t.
0 finals MVPs, gets carried by KD, and I can tell u weren’t around to watch Larry who won 3 titles, 3 MVPs, 2 Finals MVPs, a 3 point champion, a much better passer, higher IQ, played through injuries, imposed his will on anyone

It is pretty understandable why fans want to add him to their top 10. The man is an 8-time All-Star, 8-time All-NBA player, 2-time MVP, 3 titles, and has won 2 scoring titles. Throw in a 4th title with a Finals MVP in the mix, Curry’d definitely have a solid case to replace one of the legends on the esteemed list.
