Three-time NBA Champion Steph Curry has been noted as someone that has changed his sport. Over the past five years, the reason why the Golden State Warriors have won so much is because of Curry. His ability to make shots on any part of the floor makes him very dangerous. He has been dubbed the greatest shooter the game has ever seen.
“I might be delusional,” he said, “but I feel like I can get better at putting the ball in the basket.”
Curry’s teammate Draymond Green believes he can ruin a teams’ defensive scheme without touching the basketball.
“Steph can completely ruin an entire team’s defensive possession and not touch the ball,” said Golden State forward Draymond Green via Ben Cohen of the Wall Street Journal.
“You see him running to an open shot, and all of a sudden, two defenders are chasing him, leaving someone else wide open. It’s really hard to explain or even fathom, but the gravity that Steph has on a basketball court is second to none.”

Former Dallas Cowboys coach Jimmy Johnson thinks Mahomes is a very talented quarterback.
“He may be the most talented quarterback I have ever seen. I look at all the different attributes, leadership, decision-making arm strength touch on the football everything. Watching him in practice, he was so calm, so confident a lot of quarterbacks are mechanical 1,2,3, throw the football. Not Mahomes, he just slides back into that pocket and whips it underhanded, overhanded. He is so talented it unbelievable,” said Jimmy Johnson.
Like Mahomes, Stephen Curry is a second-generation professional athlete as his father played in the NBA for 16 seasons. Both Mahomes and Curry have been able to win regular-season MVPs and now at least one league championship, but unlike Mahomes, Curry hasn’t been named Finals MVP just yet.
