Stephen Curry Closes in On LeBron James’ Record

For the past decade, the Golden State Warriors have shown they are more than capable of stepping up to the big teams, and the name most associated with their growth is Stephen Curry.

Stephen Curry has been an instrumental figure in helping the Warriors win three NBA championships throughout the 2010s, and he is currently in progress of bagging a fourth. Should he succeed, Curry will close in on the legacy of LeBron James, who currently has four championship titles to his name.

Even if he doesn’t catch up to LeBron, Curry is well positioned to pass monumental names like Kobe Bryant, Larry Bird, Magic Johnson, Wilt Chamberlain, and Kevin Durant on the all-time great list.

For the past eight years, the Golden State Warriors have dominated the NBA with Stephen Curry acting as the team’s talisman. He has surprised fans and critics alike with unrelenting spirit, which has played an important role in bringing consistent success to those around him.

Steve Kerr has gone from a failed general manager and TV analyst to one of NBA’s best fifteen coaches in the sport’s history, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green proved they can be Hall of Fame players, and Andrew Wiggins reclaimed his promise, to name a few. Curry’s presence and greatness has helped bring rings, legacies, wealth, a new stadium, and a big name like Kevin Durant to a team that had once been labeled as one of the worst across American sports.

Curry’s growing legacy has been a common subject in media and among fans with conversations going around about his ability to pass LeBron’s standing on the list of all-time greats.

The Warriors’ catalyst has been dubbed the greatest shooter in basketball, changing the NBA and shifting its history with more emphasis on the three-point shooting and positionless play pioneered by Curry, defining and changing an era.

Stephen Curry’s individual resume and his ability to transform his teammates into Hall of Fame candidates have played big roles in the GOAT (Greatest of All Time) debates. Beyond establishing his name as the best shooter, Curry has also stayed a one-team player, often putting his team ahead of victories.
