While speaking to Craig Melvin on Today, Michael Jordan acknowledged that Stephen Curry is a great player, but he isn’t a hall of fame player yet.
Jordan was asked during the interview if he would amend the list of players he stated would be unbeatable in a pickup game in a promotion for NBA 2K14 back in 2013. At that time, he chose Hakeem Olajuwon, Magic Johnson, Scottie Pippen, and James Worthy.
He declined to make any changes even though six years had already passed, saying, “When I’m going in the trenches, I played against and with all these guys. I’m going with who I know,” Jordan said.
Melvin replied: “So, Steph Curry shouldn’t be offended when he watches this.”
Jordan: “I hope not. He’s still a great player. Not a Hall of Famer yet though.”
Curry has career averages of 23.5 points, 4.5 rebounds and 6.6 assists while being a two-time MVP and three-time champion. He also shoots 47.7 percent from the field, 43.6 percent from beyond the arc and 90.5 percent from the free-throw line.
But yeah…Not a hall of famer yet.
