Actually, Richmond's career would have been a lot better than it was if he would have started in 09-10 since defenses are a lot softer overall now than they were in the late 80s and late 90s on the flip side Curry career would have been worse since defenses were a lot tougher in the late 80s and 90s plus him being injury prone would have meant he would have had a lot more injuries. But since you brought up finals MVP let me list the ones that are clearly better overall players the Steph in my, book. Jerry West aka the logo only finals MVP on a losing team. Kareem all-time leading scorer enough said. Wilt Chamberlain only player to average over 50 points a game per season, only play to at one point lead the league in scoring, rebounding and assist, once averaged over 48 minutes per game played in a season since he never missed any minutes and played in some overtime games. John Havlikcek second best Celtic of all time at that point behind Russel and you can make the argument he still is. Wes Unseld best undersized center ever listed at 6'7' but probably was closer to being 6'6' only player besides Wilt that won rookie of the year and league MVP in the same season averaged 14 rpg. Magic Johson best player on the 80s Lakers best overall point guard because of his size. Moses Malone averaged 20.3 ppg and 12.3 rpg in his career. Larry Bird best player on the 80s Celtics still one of the best small forwards of all time. Michael Jordan clearly the best SG of all time. Hakeem Olajuwon averaged 21.8 ppg and 11.1 rpg only player that carried a 6th seed team to win an NBA title win that destroyed the Magic's future hopes of being contenders. Tim Duncan best power forward ever won 5 titles. Shaq on of the best centers ever won 5 titles. Kobe Bryant still the second-best SG ever won five titles. Dirk on of the best forwards of all time still the best Euro player ever in the NBA way more influential than Steph will ever be when it comes to European players. LeBron James the best small forward and soon will be the all-time scorer. Kevin Durant better overall player two times final MVP. Kawhi Lenoard great all-around guard/forward 2-time finals MVP beat both Step and LeBron in the finals. Also, time his career is over Giannis numbers will be much better also even if he spends his entire career with the Bucks and doesn't win another title.
