Stephen Curry has that ignorant asshole in him, but he just needs that rivalry to drag it up out of him.
Reggie Miller told The New Yorker’s Charles Bethea that the Golden State Warriors superstar, unlike himself and Michael Jordan, is teaching kids a good lesson on being great and nice.
“What made Jordan so great,” Miller told me, “was that he could get the ball way up in the air and finish it. But you don’t have to dunk to be like Steph. Every kid looks at Steph and thinks: I can shoot and dribble. I can do that. You don’t have to be like Mike anymore. You know, Mike was an asshole. I was an asshole, too. But you don’t have to be an asshole to be successful. Steph is living proof.”
On the court, Curry is a killer. As humble as we make him out to be, a lot of those shots aren't taken because he’s a nice guy.
