NBA Finals 2022 have eliminated any last reasonable debate regarding Stephen Curry’s career.
Steph Curry, who scored 34 points in Thursday’s 103-90 victory that clinched the title for the Golden State Warriors, was presented with the trophy he had previously seen awarded to Andre Iguodala and Kevin Durant in 2015, 2017, and 2018.
He has reached new heights after winning Game 6.
Steph Curry is one of just four players in NBA history to win at least two regular-season MVP awards, two scoring championships, and a Finals MVP award. The others are Wilt Chamberlain, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, and Michael Jordan.
It is now hard to find flaws in his legacy. However, it did not stop some people from attempting to have it done after the fact.
At the start of this season, a longstanding proponent of this argument Skip Bayless tweeted, “No way Steph has his previous two playoff wins without Kevin Durant,” while Fadeaway World highlighted after Game 1 that “Stephen Curry Dropped 8 Of His Previous 9 NBA Postseason Games Minus Kevin Durant.”
And only a few weeks ago, he provided new evidence to further the discussion.
Draymond Green, the Warriors’ power forward, claimed, “Steph Curry was double-teamed maybe seven times as often as KD did in a certain series,” according to a tweet including an audio clip from Green.
Steph Curry: The Unanimous MVP
This age of athletics and social networks culture has been with us for a while now, therefore we should be accustomed to it. Comparing Curry to Durant was not fair. He had already cemented his position as in NBA legend without winning another title.
However, we need discussion material. As well as engage in endless chitchat.
Even though he had become the best scorer of all time, his volume and effectiveness from deep made him very hard to catch.
It made little difference that he was the only player to get unanimous MVP voting.
