Golden State Warriors star Steph Curry made, headlines Tuesday when a clip of his appearance at Gil’s Arena with Gilbert Arenas went viral. Curry has claimed he is the best point guard of all time, even ahead of Magic Johnson, but Michael Jordan disagrees. This gargantuan claim has apparently caught the attention of His Airness, which strongly disagrees with Curry’s ranking, as reported by Stephen A. Smith of ESPN.
“I beg to differ on the best point guard of all time. Magic Johnson is without a doubt the best point guard of all time. Steph Curry is very close, but not ahead of Magic.“

Getting an opinion from Michael Jordan is absolutely something unique, and Stephen A. Smith argues that Jordan has had enough of any debate that puts Magic Johnson below Stephen Curry. Smith points out that Jordan agrees that Curry is the best shooter of all time, but when it comes to a true point guard, it is wrong to put him above Magic.
The fact that Jordan has intervened in a debate about NBA hierarchies is very interesting, as he is often involved in discussions about the greatest of all time. However, this will only fuel the discussion, since if Jordan expresses his opinion, no doubt other news outlets will want to talk about it.
