Former NBA player and current-day analyst, Kendrick Perkins calls Stephen Curry the greatest show on the face of the Earth
Stephen Curry is an absolute beast! After having a night where he scored 49 points in 29 minutes, Curry backed it up with a 36 point night against the top team in the NBA. The key difference in both these performances? While going off for 49 against OKC, Curry shot 11/21 from the deep. Tonight, however, Utah restricted his shots from the deep to 3/13. That did not seem to stop Steph. Curry took the challenge and went inside the paint to score the majority of his points tonight. Along with Curry, four other Warriors rose up and scored in double digits to take down Utah 119-116.
With this win, Steph and his Warriors have now got the split game they needed against the Jazz and the Suns. If they manage to win their next two games, the Dubs can stick to the 8th spot, as they face the Grizzlies on Sunday.
“Stephen Curry is Michael and everything else in Jackson 5”: Kendrick Perkins
On ESPN’s Get Up, Kendrick Perkins was asked if Stephen Curry is the greatest athlete to watch in all of sports history. Perkins denied the same claim and instead called Steph the greatest show in all of the world.
Don’t disrespect Steph Curry and limit his show to sports, he’s the headliner of all the entertainment on earth. He’s Michael and everything else is the Jackson 5! Carry on… https://t.co/GEEnpPxabf

Perkins also compared the Warriors’ star to Michael Jackson and his Jackson 5. He compared Steph to TV shows like ‘Real Housewifes’, and elephants in the circus, and said Steph ranks top amongst them all. Perkins also said it’s not just what Steph does, it’s also the way he does it that makes it so special.
Stephen Curry this year has been phenomenal. He has been leading the league in scoring, has broken multiple NBA records, and is making new records on almost a nightly basis. He certainly is the most entertaining show to watch on Earth, night in and night out.
