    We should All agree to watch 90s game in its entirety that would approximate what curry would look like back then. What game would you suggest.

    And dominance is not just about points. If we start bringing in any other part of the game into this convo and it becomes laughably one sided...and I'd still put Curry in top 4 because his 3 is that scary...but out of Bron, Jordan, Curry, Shaq...Shaq was the only one that truly could not be stopped. Again...in finals, absolute beast machine against nothing but double and triple teams. Over and over and over with no chill. That's not Curry, or really anyone. Nobody can continuously score against constant double and triple teams accept Shaq.

    "Your pitiful numbers" is such a hilarious (ignorant) comment, I love it. I feel ya though, those pesky facts are always getting in the way of a good narrative amirite!

    The 90's would not make him look worse at all. Iverson had no problem getting off shots.

    Curry has a sick handle and the best shot ever. Nothing stops that accept hard double teams or Delly.

    AI was quick af and had no conscious in a bad way.

    Still, would you suggest an AI game where he catches fire from perimeter?

    Basically. And Steph needs little room and though nobody has that IVO quickness, he's quick enough.

    I feel like lack of hand checking obviously helps smaller guys like Curry what in the world? Physical play most definitely kept the stronger guys in the league over some of the smaller/quicker ones. Not sure if people have ever played with it but it is like easily a key factor when trying to keep someone smaller in front of you on the perimeter.

    Robinson (90-91) BPM 8.4 ---- .615 TS%
    Barkley (92-93) BPM 8.3 ---- .596 TS%
    Johnson (90-91) BPM 8.3 ---- .623 TS%
    Pippen (93-94) BPM 8.3 ---- .544 TS%
    So using Tre logic, we can see that David Robinson and Michael Jordan were equally as dominant. Thanks Tre, I'll take it.

    And Dream isn't even close lol. You da man Tre! Love that guy!

    So Curry would thrive with the prominent hand-checking in the 90s. Ok!

    I'm also happy to find out, that through Tre's teachings, I now see that David Robinson was more dominant than Shaq all those years.

    Wow! What a revelation.

    Wow, all those years Shaq was scoring on two guys the way David scored on one, all I really had to do was just take a quick look over at BPM and TS% and I would of known David was actually more dominant at the time.

    Wow Tre, thanks as I sing "a whole new world"

    Im with the majority here and consider Shaq the more dominant player but it's a legit debate and I don't have a huge problem with people picking curry.
