Stephen Curry Receives Brutal Reality Check From Tracy McGrady
Stephen Curry is one of the greatest players in NBA history, but does he deserve to be mentioned in the same breath as LeBron James, Michael Jordan, and Kobe Bryant? That’s a difficult question.
Some question the legitimacy of Curry’s championships, especially considering he doesn’t have a Finals MVP. And NBA legend Tracy McGrady appears to be one of those critics.
McGrady doesn’t seem too impressed with Curry’s rings and, in turn, won’t put him up there with GOATs like MJ.
Tracy McGrady was one of the greatest offensive threats the NBA had ever seen during his career. He led the league in scoring twice and earned seven All-Star selections.
T-Mac’s resume allows him to speak on today’s game without being questioned. And he recently had a bold take about Stephen Curry.
“That’s a tough question,” McGrady said to NBC Sports Washington when asked where Curry ranks in NBA history.
He continued: “We know Steph is like the three-point God. But when it comes to putting him with [Michael Jordan] and these guys that won that level of championships; Kobe [Bryant] and Magic Johnson, I don’t know where to rank him.
I know he’s pretty high. But I think those guys are in a different class than Steph Curry based off of [all of that]. They’re on championship teams."
Tracy McGrady may have sent a harsh reality check Stephen Curry’s way, but the two-time league MVP can rewrite the narrative by winning a championship within the next week-and-a-half.
