Michael Jordan said that Stephen Curry isn’t currently a hall of famer; is he on point or is there more to the comments here?
During an interview on The Today Show, Michael Jordan was asked about Stephen Curry. While Jordan admitted that Curry was still a great player, he would go out of his way to say that he’s not a Hall of Famer in his book yet.
Once the interview went live, Twitter was ablaze. Curry, arguably the best player in the NBA at the moment, not currently a Hall of Famer? Currys is a back-to-back NBA MVP winner, a three-time NBA Champion, and a six-time NBA All-Star.
Perhaps the most interesting points made on social media was from Magic Johnson, a former Laker himself. Magic wanted to add some context to the quote from MJ that was going viral.
This is actually an interesting angle that no one really seemed to take into consideration. Magic knows all about being fined from the league when he was working with the Los Angeles Lakers. Jordan is currently the owner for the Charlotte Hornets and could’ve possibly been doing his job in avoided a fine here.
Then again, knowing his competitiveness, who really knows.
Stephen Curry discussed MJ’s comments during an interview with SiriusXM NBA Radio by saying that he is good and that he will never be complacent. He is still looking to improve himself on and off the court. He is OK with the comment that Michael Jordan made and is still considering to work on his craft.
This is not exactly a surprising quote from Curry. This is who he is and what he’s been about throughout his entire career. And it would’ve been extremely shocking to see him “come after Jordan” in any manner.
So, what do you believe? Do you think Michael Jordan was right when he said that Curry isn’t currently a Hall of Famer yet? Was Jordan just protecting his own behind, avoiding a fine? Is there more to it?
