Steph Curry lists his top five players in NBA history

It’s hard to argue with that list.

Golden State Warriors superstar Steph Curry is just like us. Okay, so he’s very different than us in many ways, but he can get down with some NBA player rankings, just like us.

Who doesn’t love that?

Ranking players is a rather futile task, but that doesn’t keep us from doing it, arguing about it passionately, and repeating. It’s fun.

Not surprisingly, Curry has some opinions on the matter.

At an event on Monday night, Curry was asked to rank his top five players all-time. His list was pretty good.

“I would say [Michael] Jordan,” Curry began, to some applause. “Wilt [Chamberlain], LeBron [James], Shaq (Shaquille O’Neal), and Magic [Johnson].”

It’s not the exact five I would have, but it’s pretty darn hard to argue with that. Magic Johnson, Michael Jordan, LeBron James, Wilt Chamberlain, and Shaquille O’Neal would make one helluva starting five.

Of course, Curry is working in that direction as well, and when all said and done he may be in a few people’s top fives.

So, who’s in your top five?
