Why NBA Fans and the Media Alike Don't Embrace Steph Curry's Career

Warriors GM Bob Myers on Steph Curry's lukewarm praise as an all-time great: "I don't (get it) either. This guy is a made-man. Forget about this Final, it's already been done, he's already done it. He's already proven it. I don't know what else he has to continue to prove. That stat, I read that, it's tremendous. But why is that eye-opening? Why can't that just be 'oh yeah, he is as good as those guys.' It's almost 'oh my gosh I didn't know Steph averaged those kinds of numbers.' Then what are you watching? What are you looking at? He's been doing it, this is his sixth Finals in eight years. Have we not watched him? Have we not watched him over the regular season? I don't know if it's envy, I don't know what it is about him that causes people to fail to recognize what he's doing out there, or reluctantly praise him."

Rob Parker: “When you talk about all-time greatness people are going to nitpick at your resume. All these times in the Finals yet you haven’t won a Finals MVP, and you haven’t had these moments where you’ve knocked down a big shot. It’s more than one thing. Sure he has put up numbers but if there was a signature moment in the Finals where Steph knocks down a big three and they win the game or a win a championship on that shot it would be different. We don’t have a signature shot in the Finals, we don’t have a Finals MVP, and we saw in Game 1 where he went 'Casper the Friendly Ghost' in the last six minutes of a team loss, so we’ve seen those moments. That’s why everybody is not in lockstep over Steph Curry. It doesn’t mean they don’t respect his ability or his talent, but he doesn’t have that ‘moment’ and that’s what people look for. They’re looking for the Michael Jordan shrug of the shoulders [1992 NBA Finals], or some big shot where you go ‘OMG that gave me goosebumps!’ or ‘did you see that shot to win the game??’ We haven’t seen it. I don’t get why people act like Steph has done everything, NO HE HASN’T. He hasn’t given us those memories yet and that’s what people want and are trying to get. He’s incomplete because he hasn’t given us those moments yet. I think it’s fair to say that Steph is not there yet because we don’t have any of those. I don’t think everyone believes that he’s a top 10 player, or that he’s better than Magic Johnson.” (Full Segment Above)
