    Curry has no comparable feat to that. You think peak Wade would blow a 3-1 lead? Hell no.
    Curry could be 0-55 from the field, and teams will still follow him around like Billy Joel chasing Christie Brinkley in "Uptown Girl" though. He bends defenses more than anyone outside Shaq I have seen. Seriously teams are willing to leave Klay or Durant open in the corner rather than give Curry a look from 29 feet.

    If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.

    Word. He's also averaged like 28/6/6 on a 60% TS in 4 championship runs and has multiple finals records like most 3's and most points in a 4th quarter (multiple times), but who's counting. Curry, somehow, still compels me to defend him on this site here and there.

    I will call a truce because you are a fellow Eagles Phan, but if you listen to most basketball people they consider Ingram and Kuzma future All Stars... Yes I get it Embiid and Simmons are great, but you don't need to Down the Lakers Young Core in order to Lift the Sixers young core. Why can't they both have great young players.. maybe you need to YouTube Ingram and Kuzma, maybe you were sleep in East Coast when Lakers were playing.. Ball 10 7 7 at 19 yrs old is Great Too! And Josh Hart is a BEAST you should know that he played at Villanova

    his around the back pass to Klay that went out of bounds late in game 7 causes the selective memory though. I get it. But that is why we should hop over and take a gander at the numbers before making a claim...

    Yes, he has more help than anyone deserves. So what? The dude is ridiculous. My Dad, who hates the NBA, taught me the game growing up. He stopped watching years ago. But he understands the game very well. Not the numbers, but the game. He said he watched about 10 mins of a game this playoffs, and he didn't even see Curry take a shot but was impressed by his away from the ball movement, his ability to create passing angles, his hesitation with the dribble that keeps defenders on their heels at all times, and his ability to create space from nothing. While this is just one man's perception, I take what my Dad says seriously about basketball. We all know these facts already, but within 10 mins, he was able to identify Curry as an amazing player, and that was without him even taking a shot.

    I mean, Simmons/Embiid take a dump on Ingram/Kuzma as far as potential. Cmon

    Ingram could be better than Simmons this coming season, wow I guess playing in East gets you Overrated.. Kuzma is no Embiid but when you add Ball and Hart that is Great young talent. I know this is a microwave society but are you Really gonna judge these prayers ceilings before they play out their rookie contracts? Ball could still be a Hall of Famer he's Only 19

    the Sixers duo is far superior to all the young talent the Lakers have. Embiid is a fixture on the all NBA teams if he stays healthy, we already know that. Simmons just put up crazy numbers for a rookie, all without a jump shot at all. That is relatively easy to at least become acceptable at. This comparison is stupid, the Lakers youngsters haven't shown much yet, Simmons/Embiid are perennial all stars barring injury.

    The Lakers youngsters have shown much.. Ball has exact same averages as Jason Kidd rookie year... Kuz averaged 16 points as a Rookie... Ingram Ave 16 in second year, both better than Kawhi and PG13 in their first THREE years.. Hart 40 percent from 3 as a Rookie.. All of this in the Western Conference smh Simmons was a liability in playoffs and Embiid is Very injury prone. There's not as big a gap as you think. Obviously LeBron thinks their potential is GREAT!

    Simmons has to learn to shoot or someone who can will take away a lot of his play making responsiblities and his numbers to fall. If he does it lights out but dude has a major hole right now

    And Wade doesn't have nearly a good amount of playoff performances to make up for God knows how many Finals Curry will make. Just not even close, actually. Curry just has more impact. He's the greatest shooter in NBA history - that's nothing to scoff at.

    Itís funny how quick your stance changes because after Curryís epic choke job in the finals you were laughing at the thought of Curry being near Wade and that was after the unanimous MVP and everything. So now winning as 2nd fiddle on the most stacked team ever has pushed curry over Wade for you?

    2005-06 Wade is better than any Curry, 08-09 Wade, 06-07 Wade pre injury, 09-10,10-11, and yes sophomore year 04-05 Wade was better.

    Not enough great performances? His 06 Finals trumps all of Curryís finals performances combined by itself. Curry and KD donít get any props for anything they do with the most stacked team ever. Letís see teams guard Wade Kobe LeBron etc in single coverage because their teammates are too good to help off of. We would see ridiculous numbers.
    RIP lol, please!
