After releasing a head-scratcher of a list of the Top 20 Athletes of the last 20 years, ESPN just released another one, this time of the 25 most influential NBA players of all-time. It correctly ranks Michael Jordan first, but Colin couldn’t believe it when he saw Steph Curry was only ranked 10th.
Colin ranks Steph as the second most influential player of all-time, behind Jordan, because of how he has transformed the modern NBA game – and basketball in general – with the three-point shot.
Curry is the face of the revolution that has transformed the NBA from a power league to a league run by guards where bigs who can’t knock down threes are an obsolete non-factor. Even LeBron hasn’t done that.
Curry isn’t the best player in the NBA, but his influence can be seen in gyms throughout the world every time a kid jacks one from the parking lot, pretending to be #30. Michael Jordan is the only other NBA player ever that can say the same thing.
Watch Colin explain why Steph deserves more credit:
