    I'll say that he is the most protected guy in the league. He is overly promoted. He is the only player to slip and fall on a fast break and not make Shaq N the fool.

          Steph is gonna go down as the mvp to their organization

            The most underrated aspect of Curry's game (Durant as well since he came to Golden State) to me is his uncanny ability to produce at a high level while also having a much lower usage rate compared to the other top players. Harden, Westbrook, LeFlop, guys who need the ball in their hands at ALL times could never do what Steph does off the ball. I think that is overlooked and counts a lot towards his greatness.

                  He is not underrated, he, as most player, is well rated. Every player has haters, those guys are the outliers, not the norm. Harden is the only top player that i would consider underrated. And btw, jokic e very undervalued, he is not better than all those top players but he is just as valuable to his team and he deserves to be higher than steph on the mvp race

                    Steph curry is the most underrated player ever. He is never mentioned in the greatest player in the league convo. But he is by far the most valuable player on a franchise in today’s NBA.

                    A great apple will never be a great orange. Steph Curry is equally great as LeBron, MJ and Kobe. He will never be the same as them. But he will always be just as great within his sphere.

                      It’s like comparing The Beatles to The Rolling Stones. One band is not greater than the other. They are equally great within their spheres.

                    I think ray would beat Steph in a comp like this. But it's like 6 out of 10 times. I think klay's game is more like Ray Allen's so I think that would be tough to say who wins that

                        Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't remember the last timer Steph's had a multiple game shooting slump. That's saying a lot for a volume shooter that shoots that many 3's.

                        Think about CC. He has the best hands in NFL history and he has enough humility to say, "I studied certain routes that Jerry Rice would run" and "he was the greatest wide receiver of all time".

                        Statements like that are the reason more people watch this show.

                                        You can stop Warriors if you stop KD.
                                        It's a fact, Cavs beat the Warriors by stopping Harrison Barnes & Draymond.

                                        Warriors beat the Cavs the first time with MVP Iguodala.
                                        Steph is great but their Chip doesn't come from Him.

                                          I really doubt that the Cavs had much to do with Barnes shooting woes. He was missing open shots. Draymond is not any teams defensive focus. If he has a bad game it's because he's just not making shots, similar to his entire 2018 regular season.

                                                      Draymond stunted Stephs ability to get the respect he deserves by calling KD. Steph didn't help himself losing 3-1 with his poor play down the stretch but I'd feel a way because in so many words Draymond said a Steph led team was not good enough.

                                                            How many of you want to bet that Cris will someone bring the topic back around to himself and his NFL days, even though it's an NBA topic. I'm think that Nick will somehow insert LeBron in the discussion.

While they can be described as great players, when it comes to who is the greatest of all time, the little guards are, IMO, unappreciated. They generally possess the highest acumen, in terms of the sport's IQ, are by necessity the best ball handlers and generally the best in terms of passing/facilitating. They tend to be the coaches on the floor for the most part. For me, they are the players that I appreciate and enjoy watching the most because they are the true underdogs, little men in a big man's game, often slaying the giants.

How many shots he did he make? 18, duuh. You say 20 shots to round out what I said, but 7 shots of difference is a lot. However, I was talking about statistics and tendences, check out basketball reference, advanced stats last five years, it's just one match, smart people think in long-terms, that says everything.
