Bob Meyers says that Steph Curry’s ‘unwavering belief in himself’ is his best quality/attribute.

Steph Curry’s revolutionary play from beyond the arc, along with fellow ‘Splash Brother’ Klay Thompson shaped the NBA into what it is today.
Players such as Damian Lillard and Trae Young are thriving in this league today, due to the foundation Curry built.

This is exactly what Bob Meyers reportedly loves about the 3x champ.
