Neither the ‘Basketball Emperor’안전놀이터 Michael Jordan nor the ‘King’ LeBron James. Draymond Green’s GOAT (the best ever) was Stephen Curry.
Green said in an interview with the American sports media ‘ESPN’ on the 28th (Korean time), “We like to argue who is the best basketball player of all time. We debate Michael Jordan or LeBron James. But the real best is Curry. He is the greatest player.”
Usually, when talking about Curry, the first thing that comes to mind is the 3-point shot. Even though the opponent’s defense blocks multiple layers and there is no space to shoot, Curry throws a 3-point shot and makes it.
Green appreciates Curry’s confidence to shoot in any situation more than the 3-point shot itself. “Curry’s confidence is really special. It’s one of the most unique things about him. His level of confidence is unmatched by any other player,” he said.
Curry’s confidence shines even more on a big stage like the playoffs and in the clutch, which is a close battle. He is also making the defense useless with 31.4 points per game in the first round of the playoffs against the current Sacramento Kings. Amid Curry’s performance, the Golden State Warriors had only one win left to advance to the second round with a series record of 3 wins and 2 losses.
Curry said his self-confidence was a realm that couldn’t be explained logically. He describes it as “crazy confidence” that cannot be judged rationally. “It’s a way of showing who I am and how I play. I’m not passive. I do what I have to do. I have to be insanely confident,” he said.
