With several discussions and debates happening on the league's greatest of all-time player, links between the legendary and star players are arising; however, a conclusion is yet to be made.

During such important discussions, Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry was seen with his open claims of being the NBA G.O.A.T. in comparison to legends like Magic Johnson.

In reflection of Curry's claims as the greatest of all time, NBA legends like Michael Jordan and Magic Johnson have come in defense against the 4-time NBA Champion.

For Jordan, "Curry is very close but not in front of Magic. You must define a point guard to have a serious debate. He is by far the best shooter of all time, but Johnson invented the triple double."

For Johnson, “If he got more than five championships, three Finals MVPs, three league MVPs... if he got more than those numbers, then he's the best. But the last time I checked, he didn't."

Following the opposing statements made by the legends against Curry and Jordan defending Johnson's reference as the NBA G.O.A.T., Curry recently reached out with his opinion on them.

“It’s the beautiful thing about basketball. There’s respect and admiration for what Magic did in his career. His resume is second to none. If you’re in that conversation, then it’s a job well done.”

Beyond such debates lies the existing career of the current players as part of the league. Stephen Curry is, however, currently setting his aim to represent Team USA at the 2024 Paris Olympics.
