Steph Curry, the renowned sharpshooter and four-time NBA champion of the Golden State Warriors, is a nightmare for opposing defenses. With his exceptional scoring ability, Curry presents a formidable challenge for any team trying to guard him.

During the 2022-23 season, Curry demonstrated his scoring prowess by averaging an impressive 29.4 points, 6.1 rebounds, and 6.3 assists in just 34.7 minutes per game.

In a recent revelation, the 35-year-old superstar shared the three defenders he considers the toughest to play against. These defensive stalwarts include Jrue Holiday, Tony Allen, and Metta World Peace (now known as Metta Sandiford-Artest). Of the trio, only Jrue Holiday is currently active in the league.

Tony Allen, a three-time NBA All-Defensive First Team (2012, 2013, 2015) and three-time NBA All-Defensive Second Team (2011, 2016, 2017) member, showcased his defensive prowess against Curry during his career.

Jrue Holiday, a three-time NBA All-Defensive First Team (2018, 2021, 2023) and two-time NBA All-Defensive Second Team (2019, 2022) honoree, continues to be a fierce defender in the league.

Metta World Peace, a former NBA Defensive Player of the Year (2004) and a two-time NBA All-Defensive First Team (2004, 2006) and Second Team (2003, 2009) member, was a force to be reckoned with during his playing days.
