Yes...if Curry is able to do 31/5/7 69% TS the rest of the year and in the playoffs.
It would be the single greatest offensive season ever imo....given his gravity off the ball as well...I won't call it easily, but it's close.
As great as MJ was and as dominant as he was offensively...he didn't have remotely the off ball impact and didn't create quite as many scoring opportunities for his teammates because of that.
Now, would peak MJ be able to dominate even more in this soft perimeter rules league with very poor bigs...perhaps, but Steph is taylor made for this era.
Either way....Steph is in a very rare and special place historically with only a couple, if that, players in NBA history being as good offensively.
