We can talk about stats but that at the end of the day, it's ultimately winning is the most important part of that GOAT formula. Is Lebron a more complete player? Yes. Is lebron more athletically gifted? of course, but really...who cares if you don't dominate and impose your will on the league? Curry changed the league by playing nothing like MJ, which is a testament to how unique of a player he is. If he can secure another ring or two, he'll be looked at as the undisputed GOAT. Hell, you can make the argument now. He's been more successful in a shorter period and he still has good years left. Lebron had his time and his window appears to be closing. Lebron had to change his playstyle to compete with Curry. Curry ain't change the way he play to be more like Lebron, because he doesn't need to to beat Lebron. It's Curry's league. Lebron is chasing Curry and MJ. Curry ain't chasing no Lebron no more.

Lebron legacy is that he won't surpass MJ, but I think Curry is on track to surpass MJ as a better all-time winner.
To put things in perspective

As a player (all around)

Lebron >= Jordan >>> Curry

As a winner

Curry > Jordan >>> Lebron

You mean the guy who won half of his championships as the second best player on his team :mjlol:

2016-2019 Warriors put a ceiling on how high Curry will rank. His team won literal playoff series' without him and KD had the biggest games/moments when it mattered most.

Curry won before durant, with Durant, and after durant.

It's as clear as day durant ain't what everyone thought he was. And if someone is still arguing the contrary, then listening to their NBA opinion is a waste of time.

Last year Durant losing in 7 to Milwaukee looked better than Curry losing the play-in game to the Lakers.

Tough to downplay Durant's performances with an inferior team when Curry has 1 career playoff series win in the 6 seasons he played with anything other than a stacked team.

Curry won it all with basically the same team the following year, beating the team that swept durant.

What is the point of your post?

These warriors were stacked now? If so aren't you making more of a case for the "Curry makes his teammates better" crowd?

The Warriors were talented 8-deep with 3 all-stars plus 20ppg Klay and 18ppg Poole. They were a lot more stacked than what KD has had the last couple years.

You claimed "Durant ain't what everyone thought he was", which is a ridiculous claim to make based on one bad series, especially considering that Curry has never once done anything with a roster remotely as weak as what KD was playing with this year.

I pointed out that last year, when Curry had a comparably poor roster, he did nothing.

Incorrect. Everyone thought he was a leader when in reality he just likes to score. Which was why he was great with golden state and not as great anywhere else.

When Curry wins with less talent, that talent increases their ppg, shooting % and more to allow said winning to happen. He's literally making his teammates better because of the massive attention he gets.

If durant could do that, why hasn't he done it yet?

I don't think anyone ever thought KD was some transcendent leader, I never heard that take. But I haven't heard of Curry being that either, at times Draymond looks more like the soul of the team off the court.

Partly a degree of weakness of Durant's part, and partly because Curry's team has a system and players that can maximize that space with good positioning and ball movement. Draymond is the one ensuring that the ball whips around to the open player as much as Curry is.
