Sorry AI, Steph Curry is one of the top 10 players in the NBA

You’ve probably seen the poll and the list, but the interesting thing about an AI-generated list of the NBA’s top 10 players of all time is that it doesn’t pretend to be one team, with specific positions. Only designate the historically greatest NBA players, period. For me, this makes it absolutely necessary to include Stephen Curry.

I’ve been mesmerized by Curry, just like the rest of us, ever since the 2015 Golden State Warriors championship breakthrough in Cleveland. But my all-time backcourt has always considered Magic Johnson and Michael Jordan to be the perfect point guard-shooting guard combination. I’m old enough to have seen a lot of Jerry West and Oscar Robertson, during their early years, at the old LA Sports Arena in the 60’s. So those have always been my backups, no need for thought.

As we now witness Curry, still an unstoppable force at 35 with plans to play for several more years, it’s time for an overhaul. It has to be on this list. Let’s just say upfront: all 10 of those players belong. The idea of ​​kicking him out seems rude and just plain wrong. But it has to be done if the point is to end up with 10.

To begin with, in no top 10 there is no touching Magic and Michael, LeBron James, Kobe Bryant, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Bill Russell, Wilt Chamberlain or Larry Bird. Just out of principle, don’t slip Curry in front of any of those guys, no matter how much you love him.
