Steph Curry Responds to Michael Jordan’s Hall of Fame Comments
During a recent interview with Michael Jordan and NBC’s Craig Melvin, the basketball legend shared his thoughts on six-time NBA champion Steph Curry. Jordan was asked by Melvin if he would amend the list of players he said would be unbeatable in a pickup game. Jordan initially picked Hakeem Olajuwon, Magic Johnson, Scottie Pippen, and James Worthy and said that he wouldn’t change the lineup even though six years had passed since he first made the list.
“So, Steph Curry shouldn’t be offended when he watches this.” That’s when Jordan honestly said, “I hope not. He’s still a great player. Not a Hall of Famer yet though.” The Golden State Warriors star responded to Jordan’s comments during an exclusive interview with Sole Collector. He said,
“I think I’m good, but then I’m never complacent. I know I have more to prove to myself. When you hear a guy like that who’s the greatest of all time, it’s kind of funny. Since we’ve been on this stage, we’ve heard a lot of retired guys chiming in on this generation of basketball player and evaluating talent and saying their generation was better and all that. It’s a great conversation for the fans to get in on. I know I’m in good shape for that, but I still have a lot to prove to myself.”
Warriors coach Steve Kerr also spoke out on Michael Jordan’s comments about his player. He said,
“I think Michael has his own version of the Hall of Fame. It’s in his own head, whatever that is, then that’s what it is.”
