He's not even a 50% lifetime shooter lol
Does't change the fact that he has the record for most three point shots made in a season, which he's going to break again this season, and that he has the most consecutive games with three pointers made in NBA history.
Also, most guards don't shoot 50% anyways so I don't see how that is a knock against him. Reggie Miller and Ray Allen are the two other names often mentioned in the greatest shooter of all time conversation they both shot 47.1% and 45.2% respectively; both of which are less that Curry's 47.7% career FG%.
Basic logic. If someone wants me to believe they are the greatest shooter ever, I'm going to have to see proof. Jordan was a guard and had a higher FG%. Steve Kerr was a PG and had a higher 3P%. How exactly can someone be the GOAT when they aren't as "great" in the particular area in which they are being called the GOAT? It makes no sense at all.
Curry is a great player, but you're all falling into the same sheep like, media driven trap that has befallen many "next Jordans" since the mid 90's. Grant Hill, Penny Hardaway, Vince Carter, Kobe Bryant, Lebron James... they were all "the next" before Curry, which is the new "next". The NBA and ESPN has never been able to fill the void since MJ left and have had to resort to knowingly over-hyping players in order to keep attention on the sport and raitings from plummeting. Take a look at the NBA raitings over the last 30 years. When Jordan was going through his last three-peat, they were at an all-time high. After he retired in 1998, they nose dived and have never returned.
oThink about it. Lebron is over 30, and has finally, for the first time, started to decline. Don't you think it's a bit suspicious that Curry is now the golden boy of ESPN and the league? It's all about money and creating buzz and attention. Curry is a great player, but no greater than Kobe or Lebron before him. He'll decline in a view years, and all this buzz will go away as quickly as it came and everyone will move on to the "next thing" and say HE'S the "next"... it'll never end.
