Stephen Curry believes in being level-headed all the time, no matter what he achieves and who gives him the flowers he deserves.
The NBA announced its 75th-anniversary team earlier this season, naming the 75 greatest players to grace the NBA court. A panel of media members, current and former players, coaches, general managers, and team executives selected the greatest players in NBA history, similar to the 50 Greatest Players in NBA History in 1996.
The committee, tasked with compiling a list of 75 players, added a 76th member due to a tie in voting. The list is part of the league’s anniversary celebrations, which are taking place during the 2021–22 season. Eleven active players were chosen to be part of this illustrious list, including LeBron James, Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant, Giannis Antetokounmpo, James Harden, and Anthony Davis.
Steph Curry, who is widely credited with changing the game forever, was named to the list in his 13th season in the NBA. Curry, a seven-time All-Star and seven-time All-NBA selection, has also won two scoring titles and back-to-back MVP awards in 2015 and 2016, both of which were unanimously chosen. In addition to his individual achievements, Curry has won three NBA championships with the Warriors, including back-to-back titles in 2017 and 2018.
