While speaking with NBC Sports Washington, seven-time NBA All-Star Tracy McGrady came out to express his belief that the Golden State Warriors star guard Stephen Curry does not belong in the same class as some other all-time greats, via Ahn Fire Digital:
“That’s a tough question. Because he has his career individually and with what he’s accomplished with his team is tough. Because you’ve gotta think, he won a championship, right, against LeBron that didn’t have Kyrie [Irving], that didn’t have Kevin Love. He didn’t win the [Finals] MVP, right? Then he loses a 3-1 lead to LeBron, gets K.D. [Kevin Durant], K.D. comes and wins two championships, so that gives Steph three championship but K.D. wins the two MVPs, right?
“We know Steph is like the 3-point God. But when it comes to putting him with [Michael Jordan] and these guys that won that level of championships; Kobe [Bryant] and Magic Johnson, I don’t know where to rank him. I know he’s pretty high. But I think those guys are in a different class than Steph Curry based off of [all of that]. They’re on championship teams. K.D. came and joined the Warriors and became the best player and helped Steph win two more championships. But Steph wasn’t the best player on that team.”
