    Impact matters though. No player has ever had the cultural and philosophical impact that Steph had. He literally changed how basketball is played and made it better. So yeah he can't bulldoze his way past centers and dunk the ball, but those other guys can't do what Steph does either.

    He rises above adversity. It's why he dragged a shit team to game 6 against the mighty Spurs in 2013 and has won 3 rings which should have been 4 if Klay KD Iggy and Looney don't all get hurt.

    Plenty of ppl can shoot open 3s.

    Its a lot easier to take 50 footers when you are winning in a blowout, which also happens to be the only time FiTP produces.

    The very nature of his game will always be vulnerable to high variance, as we've seen in literally every Finals he's played in

    It simply just isn't reliable/consistent/powerful enough for me to take him and his game top 10 all-time when you have plenty of superstars throughout history who've demonstrated they were capable of grinding out superstar production even when their jumpshat isn't falling. The opposite extreme of Steffy's feast or famine would be guys like MJ, LeBrick, Shaq, Wad, Hakeem, Magic, Barkley, Dirk etc who when they were at their peak could impose their will on every game of a series without needing to be on a hot shaating streak

    I get that Steffy is the GOAT floor spacer even when his hand is cold, and that definitely has broad impact overall in terms of building a system around him that can steamroll the regular season, but when everything gets narrowed down in the yoffs to single 4th quarters of games that grind down to a halfcourt war of attrition and ultimately define seasons and legacies, you want and need your lead dog to be able to grab the ball and say "hold my beer" and impose his will on the opponent even if he has to do it by himself. And in that sense, Steffy has always been hit or miss

    And all this is not even taking into account defensive impact

    I disagree with everything you have said. You say the high variance is why his productivity is volatile in the finals. Ignoring how differently games are called in the finals then the rest of the playoffs. And you don't even take into account defensive schemes and health.


    Just these last finals Curry averaged 31ppg against a defense that boxed and 1 him the whole series. If that isn't testament to his greatness then I don't know what is.

    Steph is top 5 all time in ppg in the finals. Why he doesn't have 2 or 3 finals MVPs is because of Nike propaganda.

    He definitely should've won it over Igudona. That FMVP was ridiculous, lol

    Nah, its because he sucks in crunch time.

    KD was by far the best player on that team, and lol @ losing FMVP to a fucking bench player (Iggy)

    I mean Steph averages more in the 4th quarter of the playoffs tham almost everyone. Just admit when you are wrong and acknowledge that Curry is in fact a top 5 goat.
