Curry dropped 34 points in the Golden State Warriors’ Game 6 win over the Boston Celtics on Thursday night to capture their fourth NBA championship since 2015. The guard was a difference-maker throughout the series and continued to prove why he’s arguably the NBA’s best shooter at the moment.
After the game, Perkins took to Twitter to express just how good he thinks Curry is, putting him into the conversation with Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant and Larry Bird, to name a few.
“Steph Curry is officially sitting at the table with Jordan, Bron, Kobe, Shaq, Magic and Bird!!!,” Perkins tweeted. “Carry the hell on… #FinalsMVP.”
That’s quite some praise.
Curry, 34, likely still has some good years left in him, and he’ll certainly be fun to watch as he shows no signs of slowing down.
