Former NBA champion Kendrick Perkins shared his views on the Golden State Warriors superstar Steph Curry and his impact on the game of basketball.

“Steph Curry is 1-of-1. … He’s a generational talent. He changed the game because it’s not like… people call him a point guard. I don’t. I call him a hybrid…,” Perkins said. He also compared the three-time NBA champion to Magic Johnson, Larry Bird and Michael Jordan in the way he changed the game by bringing something new.

Perkins also credited Curry for giving hope to smaller and less athletic players. The sharpshooter is not the most athletic of players, but he is still one of the biggest stars of the league because of his shooting and basketball IQ.

Recently Perkins said he would pick James Harden over the Golden State superstar.
