You say a bunch of intangibles like what? You can't simply use that argument. Tell me what intangible aspect make MJ better then the Curry we've seen through 10 games?
you're tripping fam. not to troll you, but you tried to call me out for reading comprehension, and can't comprehend even the details of what you're saying
I didn't say you couldn't separate offense/defense. I said you can't say Curry = Jordan and not specify offense. Curry is NOT equal to Jordan. Curry's offense (is arguably) equal to Jordan.
I agree he's the best shooter of all time.
Intangibles, I'd give you more than 1, but I'm concerned about your comprehension of it all.
1. Competitiveness: Curry spent like 2 games chucking shots out of frustration over Dellevedova in the NBA Finals. He got consumed with it on the highest stage when he could have easily been blowing past this guy and/or passing to his teammates. The GSW are a very well oiled offensive machine. If he didnt have more guys on his team that could play-make, create, etc they might have gotten bounced. I've never seen Jordan do anything close to this. He dominated every opponent with high IQ shot selection, and it was never in question.
Sure shot selection goes out of the window some with Curry, but not when a bum is playing "troll you" defense and you can obviously just blow past him.
