Stephen Curry isn’t ready to compare himself to Michael Jordan just yet.
As the Golden State Warriors are set to take on the San Antonio Spurs in Round 2 of the NBA Playoffs, Curry was asked on Sunday about a comparison Greg Popovich made more than a week ago. The Spurs’ head coach said, “It was like playing against Michael Jordan” after Curry posted 35 points on San Antonio in the final game of the season.
According to Marcus Thompson of the Bay Area News Group, Curry laughed when asked about the comparison and said “”Was he drunk when he said it?”
Curry hasn’t been MJ in the postseason thus far, but he’s been damn impressive, posting 24.3 points, 9.3 assists and 4.3 rebounds per game, while hitting 46.8 percent of his shots and 44.2 percent of this three-pointers.
