    Default Does Curry pass Kobe with a Finals MVP this year? Or did he already pass him?

    It will be hard to keep Curry out of the top ten if he wins a 4th ring and Final MVP to go along with all the other amazing accolades he's collected over the years. 2019 to 2022 KD has been out of the 1st round once with zero Finals trips. Curry is on his way to another Finals trip without KD.

    ○ Kobe won 1 MVP in 20 years (bottom tier for top 15-20 players)
    ○ Curry has won 2 MVPs in fewer years

    Add in Curry's Finals MVP for 2022 and is Curry now into the top 10 and Kobe moving closer to top 15?

    Curry is a better player than Kobe but legacy wise he is not there yet.

    That 4th ring and a FMVP is getting really close... still not sure I would go there... but he'd be getting close. Basically a tie legacy wise after this year if that happens. One more of anything else on top of winning it this year and it would be a done deal.

    Curry self cucked when he let Durant join them.

    I will say that one of Kobe's legacy boosters is his insane longevity and I hope that his fans see the importance of LENGTH of SUPERIORITY versus being a short-lived flash in the pan.

    I currently have Kobe over Curry mainly due to Curry not having one Finals MVP but if he gets one this year then I will have to reassess my rankings. Kobe might still be on top due to legacy and longevity like you mentioned but it will damn sure be close.

    Most of the all time rankings are longevity. It's essentially the most important thing that puts people up there.

    Circumstances and longevity. Circumstances and longevity are the primary difference between... Kobe Bryant and... Tracy McGrady.

    That's the difference between being considered by many to be a fringe top 10 player if not the GOAT and... missing the top 75 entirely.

    If LeBron stays in Cleveland his entire career, is he where he is now? Nope. Labeled as a career loser.

    If the Bulls never get Pippen and Jordan is surrounded by trash his entire career, is he where he is now? Nope. Labeled as a career loser.

    And so on and so forth.

    If we're gonna ignore the other half of the game then sure.

    I doubt it slick. And to date, we still haven't found any iconic playoff moments yet from chef dingo.

    Currys 2015 ring was bogus and he didn't even win fmvp

    The durant rings are obviously not worth anything.

    I dont get why people bring up the rings when it comes to curry. You can't find another star with weaker rings.
