    The (very slight) issue with Steph is that if you can slow the game down and put long athletic defenders on him his impact will wane a bit. Both of which tend to happen the deeper you get into the playoffs.

    He's at his best against worse teams or when the good ones don't really care enough to chase him around all the time. He's kind of like Westbrook in a way in that his style preys on guys who aren't locked in. Obviously he's greater than Westbrook by a significant margin, for anyone who could possible freak out about that. But the point remains.

    Remember the time they said that he's likely a candidate for mvp last season though.

    Which amounts to comfortable 3rd-4th spot in the west with him, not even enough for the last play-in spot without him. It's crazy how much a player in his 19th season is valuable to a team.
    Dat sample size. I dont know why bron faking injury he doesnt ever have to face iverson in the playoffs or anything

    Both mj and steph had great overall offensive impact. And mj warped offenses with shooting also. He just did it from the mid more because it was a different era where whole teams were shooting 7 or 8 threes a game.

    Again to be the goat at anything you have to have done it consistently for a decent amount of seasons. Steph has maybe been the undisputed best scorer in the regular season for 3 years. He's maybe been the undisputed best scorer in the post season for 1 year. He's never been the best offensive player on the floor in the finals. He wasn't even the best offensive player on his team for most of his finals wins. How in the hell does all this equal the goat offensive player. It's honestly crazy talk dude.

    GS is currently 2nd in the league in offensive efficiency. Just look at his supporting cast. Replace Steph with any other great player there is no way their offense would be ranked that high.

    Teams would leave MJ wide open behind the line.

    Of course MJ was an elite defender so nobody is going to claim Steph is as good as MJ overall.
    Question for you and anyone who thinks this. How can a player who's never been the best offensive player on the floor in the finals be considered the goat offensive player?

    Lebron legit had the worst shooting finals performance of this century when you account the volume.

    "Best player in the finals doe"
