Thompson in a statement said, “Probably say, Steph because of the three obviously, he’s the closest to Michael Jordan in his impact and MJ did the same thing,” Thompson said. “I could just see Steph sitting at home, like, ‘I still got it.'”

Klay Thompson’s assertion is something everyone will agree on. Curry since his draft has evolved the game of basketball and single-handedly re-defined the league with his playmaking skills and his out-of-the-world shots beyond the three-point line. So if anyone in this generation of basketball has a lasting impact after what Michael Jordan had, it would be Steph Curry.
