NBA: The Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr was full of compliments for Steph Curry, comparing Steph to his former teammate Michael Jordan.
It is highly like that Curry will never overtake Michael Jordan in terms of championships (six to three) or league MVPs (five to two), he has the capacity to fully take over a game on the offensive side on a day-to-day basis just like MJ.
“He’s reminding me of Michael Jordan in that you just get so used to the brilliance and the excellence, it sort of blends in with everything else,” Steve Kerr said, per Ramona Shelburne of ESPN. “It just becomes routine. It’s insane to say that because what you’re watching is otherworldly, and yet you sort of beginning to expect it. That’s probably the purest sign of greatness.“
The seven-time All-Star averaged 37.3 points per game during the month of April while holding the Warriors commissioned despite injury obstacles and a rotating cast of backup players.
Steph Curry Records
He set the NBA record for the most three-pointers in a month with 93 and put himself back into the MVP conversation. Unfortunately, the Warriors are striving for a position in the Western Conference play-in tournament and not at the top two or three seeds.
His individual brilliance has Golden State primed to make the postseason even though Klay Thompson never played this season, James Wiseman is out for the season, Damion Lee is sidelined, Kelly Oubre Jr. is sidelined and Eric Paschall is out.
Steph Curry this season:
🎯 First in PPG (31.3)
🎯 First in 40+ PT games (8)
🎯 First in 3-PT FGM (5.2)
🎯 First in 3-PT FGA (12.2)

As Steve Kerr said, it is unusual at this point to see Curry be anything but excellent in any given game even as the principal focal point of the opposition.
