I'm going to go with Curry here, but I paused for a minute to really debate if it should be Hondo. Obviously in terms of peak performance, Curry is the answer, but Havlicek gets so underrated in these conversations. Dude was a perennial All-NBA and All-Defensive player with eight titles and a Finals MVP who did literally everything well on the floor.

What hurts Hondo is that he was inefficient as a scorer by the standards of every era since the 80s. For the 60s and 70s, he wasn't horrible. But you compare his advanced numbers to guys of the last 30 years, and they's just not on the same level. If he had played in an era with a 3-point shot, though, maybe those numbers would look a little different...

If Curry hasn't passed Hondo yet, he will easily. So the answer is Curry.
