At nearly 29 years old, Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry is rounding the first corner of greatness. After winning a pair of MVP awards and an NBA championship; leading the league in three-pointers, steals, and free-throw average; not to mention leading the Golden State Warriors to the greatest single-season record in NBA history, there’s no telling how high his career trajectory will take him. As the main catalyst behind the Warriors’ back to back Finals appearances, Curry is being mentioned alongside some of the game’s Hall of Fame greats.
Given a world fueled by social media, where accomplishments — good and bad — are magnified and made viral, it’s worth taking a step back and comparing Curry’s accomplishments to other point guards, many of whom have gone on to celebrated fame and enshrinement in the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame. As with most pro sports, Hall of Fame inclusion represents an excellent career that includes more than just a few stellar seasons.
