Shaquille O’Neal is one of the many basketball personalities who believe that Stephen Curry is the most influential player ever.
13 years into his career and Stephen Curry has established himself as the greatest shooter the sport of basketball has ever seen. This past season, apart from winning his 4th title, the Warriors leader surpassed Ray Allen for the all-time 3-point record, and also became the only player in history to knock down 3,000+ shots from beyond the arc.
With the way he uses the 3-point line, over the course of his eminent career, the 2-time MVP has completely redefined the way modern basketball is played. Ever since Curry’s 2015 MVP season, the league has been tossing up more three-pointers than ever. Clearly, Steph has had quite an impact on today’s basketball, playing a huge role in making the sport more fast-paced than ever.
Shaquille O’Neal is just one of many basketball enthusiasts who believe Chef Curry has had a huge impact on the sport. In fact, the former Lakers legend went on to term SC30 as the most influential player.
