Reggie Miller Says He'd Take Down Steph Curry at His Peak

Reggie Miller is one of the greatest shooters to ever live, so you’ll have to cut him a break if he’s not ready to crown Stephen Curry as the best shooter ever.

Miller, who ranks second in NBA history in 3-pointers made, told the New Yorker that he would have beaten Curry in his prime.

“All truly great shooters – Dale Ellis, Larry Bird, Craig Hodges, Chris Mullin – we always believed that we were the best shooters in the world,” Miller said. “So, yeah, I’d take down Steph at my peak. Sure, my form wasn’t as good as his. But it’s all about results, man.”

Miller still has Curry beat in terms of total makes (2,560 to 1,310), but Miller needs to see him do it over a long period of time, before he crowns him.

“He still has a lot of chapters to write,” Miller said, “but, right now, you could certainly consider him among the top-five shooters of all time. The streak that Steph has been on since last season rivals the greats of the game.

“It’s hard to say he’s better than Larry Bird or he’s better than Steve Kerr, his coach, because those guys did it for much longer. But for this short a period he’s in that group. And he keeps improving. If he can beat his own record for most threes in a season, then you’ve got to consider him one of the best ever.”

Curry, who broke his own record for most 3-pointers made in a season with 286 last season, is on pace to hit 426 this year.
