    Magic did play on superteams but lets remember that he had 42 points, 15 rebounds and 7 assists in game 6 of the 1980 nba finals vs the Sixers without Kareem. And Magic was only a 20 year old rookie.

    Imagine being so emotionally fragile that you take a thread about Curry as threatening to your hero.

    That's a fair assessment. And probably why the Bronies are so insecure about Curry.

    Remember also.....teammate, Jamaal Wilkes put up 37-10 in that game 6. Magic definitely wasn't a one man band that night.

    Steph's resume will be stronger and stronger with every year. Right now the media underrates him to highlight how great Lebron is, because Lebron brings money.
    You ask any media talking head, who's been greater from 2014 to 2022, most of them would answer Lebron. You ask them for another example in history, player A being better than player B, player A having 0 MVPs and 2 chips, player B - 2 MVPs and 4 chips, they would change the subject.
    Lebron brings money, Jordan too, nothing wrong with constantly sucking up to them to feed your family. But in 20 years, when that's not the case, Curry might be higher in the ratings.

Dirk also had his struggles in between finals appearances. In general games are more physical, and theres more scheming, so that a guy who's used to going off from outside in the regular season isnt getting the same quality of looks as before and his effectiveness dips. In the regular season Matthew Delavadova isnt dehydrating himself hounding you all over the court. In the playoffs, he is. Shane Battier hasnt been studying film of all your tendencies for four hours before tip off, but in the playoffs he is.
    This, this is actually pretty accurate. It’s also why Wade torched the same Pistons team Kobe struggled with. Kobe settled for jumpers with long arm Prince contesting, meanwhile Flash said eff this and got to the rim and destroyed the defense from the inside - out.

    At this point it's more to protect the reputations of their biggest advertisers' marquee brands. Curry should already be well within the top 10. A dynastic team like the Warriors without a representative is anomalous. It's probably one of the clearest signs of media manipulation in popular culture. If Curry leads his team to another championship he should be clear top 5. Curry's achievements would be stronger than anyone else at 5 rings. At 6 rings it appears most people on this site will be faced with an existential question.

    You should stop making a fool out of yourself. If it was a copy and pasted list, I wouldn't have originally forgotten Hakeem.

    Mikan arguably changed the game more than anyone else who's ever played. All time rankings are subjective, but you can make a case for Mikan.

    But talk about a player who is not only the greatest shooter of all-time, but revolutionized the game. While KD did win FMVP both years playing alongside Steph, it was Steph who received the most defensive attention, which gave KD a lot more spacing and free looks.

    Steph and GS developed a solid offensive system that is unmatched. He's arguably the greatest off the ball weapon you can have because of his ability to catch and shoot, catch-dribble-shoot, catch-dribble-fake-shoot, or catch-dribble-fake-pass....from anywhere on the court.

    The entire basketball world has changed because of Steph. The three pointer? That's cause of Steph....not MJ, not LeBron, not even Bird, Reggie, or Allen. The three from the logo? That's 'cause of Steph. Now I'm not saying he's the greatest player of all time, but his career and playing style is so unique and it really makes you wonder where he should be placed in the rankings.

    Is Magic really > Steph? Sure, Steph played on super-teams by design, but do we really know that GS wouldn't have won the title in 2017 or 2018 without KD? Intuition tells me no, but intuition also tells me that they probably could have won it, too. And what did Magic win without Kareem anyway?

    Is Kobe really > Steph? How about Wilt? Or even Bird?
    Steph playing with KD for 2 full post seasons is one of the most bizarre negatives I've seen. 2 of the top 4 GOAT players literally won 10/11 titles playing together. If someone wants to bring up the fact that it bothers people that KD joined and it shouldn't count as much, I better see Magic and Kareem as 9-10th best each. Keep that same energy.

    Steph is 100% top 10, it's ridiculous it's even an argument at this point. Esp when I see Hakeem and Wilt as the main obstacles. Most of his main history gold from his resume are things noone else has done or 3-4 in NBA history:
    - GOAT regular season (2016)
    - GOAT post season (2017, tied with KD, Kobe, Shaq)
    - 1 of 3-4 players who changed the game and some of the biggest impact
    - GOAT shooter
    - GOAT off ball player
    - only unanimous MVP
    - top 3 leaders with Bill & Duncan


    If Steph was 6 6, used physicality/athleticism and worked with Nike, noone would even have this conversation.

    That's a retarded logic. Having one incredible game doesn't equate to an entire career.

    I guess... He will need a couple of more All-NBA 1st teams or either 1 more MVP or Finals MVP to enter the top 10.
    But Ja Morant COULD also be the even shorter player to enter the top 10 if he theoretically accomplishes a shitload, so WTF is the point of this thread?

    Any other guys you know lead an NBA team to 73 wins or given an unanimous MVP?
