“He could probably play the game into his 50s if he wanted to”

Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry has impressed another NBA legend, this time with praise from Scottie Pippen. Dubbed “the greatest shooter of all time,” Curry never ceases to amaze with his gameplay.

The eight-time All-Star is a favorite of many. His skills on the court helped change the game of basketball. Last season, he broke Ray Allen’s 3-point record. Curry doesn’t seem to be ready yet. At the age of 34 he won his first Finals MVP award. In 2020-21 he won his second Scorer title.

Throughout his career, he has been praised by Hall of Famers such as Shaquille O’Neal, Elgin Baylor and Allen Iverson.

Chicago Bulls legend Scottie Pippen recently shared how special the Warriors guards are.

“I think Steph obviously positioned himself as the greatest shooter we’ve ever seen,” Pippen said. “You take a guy like Steph, you know, he’s a mini LeBron to a degree. Physically he is strong for his size.”

Pippen ended with this:

“He could probably play the game into his 50s if he wanted to.”

The two-time league MVP has wowed fans with his ability to shoot from deep. However, many overlook how he has taken care of his body to still be able to play at an all-time level. Given early career injuries to his ankles and then his foot in 2019-20, many are surprised he has overcome those obstacles. Curry’s determination to keep getting better was duly noted.

Davidson’s point guard proved to doubters that he’s not just a shooter. When Stephen Curry came to the league in 2009, he didn’t get as much attention from other teams. The Minnesota Timberwolves famously passed him on draft night. They chose two point guards with back-to-back picks before the Warriors chose the sniper.

His career didn’t start that well compared to what he later achieved. However, in 2012-13, Curry had a breakout season and continued shooting from long range. He would not stop shooting and kept breaking shooting records in front of him.

Fast forward to 2022, he’s racked up a ton of trophies and tops most NBA shooting records. Curry is a two-time MVP and the first to win the award unanimously. He is also a four-time champion, Finals MVP, All-Star Game MVP, and a member of the NBA 75th Anniversary team.

Curry’s resume is stacked, and on top of that he changed the game of basketball. Because of this, he has strong arguments for being the GOAT point guard.
