    Guess Kobe and Bron changed the game for worse too???? 🗑

    • Shut Up

      June 1, 2022 at 12:00 pm

      Lebron yes. Kobe no

      Its clear the MJ worshippers dont wanna give LBJ any credit. You can clearly see the blatant bias

    how can we have this topic but struggle to cement Curry as top 10 player all time??

      @G G how? U mean better offense?

    • T Bone

      June 1, 2022 at 1:26 pm

      Isn’t as great as a defender as the other top 15 to 20 players and I wouldn’t say he’s as clutch

    • Malcom Smith

      June 1, 2022 at 1:49 pm

      He hasnt proved anything but that he is a great shooter. If he can win this series and be the guy who leads them than he gets his flowers. What hurts him is has yet to win when carrying the load.

      To me James Harden also changed the game with all his Side steps, back steps, stepbacks, and sneaky moves. Changed the acfual playing as much as anybody after steph to me. But that dont make him top 10… respectfully.

      Curry trash af. He needed Durant because he was scared of Lebron.

  4. NBA TALk

    Jordan retired because they was getting rid of phil lmaoooo that says alot

  5. Mike Jones

    The Warriors with KD was the greatest team of all-time.. Steph will get his praise when he retires.

    • KFM 89

      June 1, 2022 at 12:32 pm

      2017 Warriors would destroy the 96 Bulls.

    • Serials Baby Daddy

      @KFM 89 facts but them old heads don’t wanna hear that 💀

    • AngelkissDj

      June 1, 2022 at 1:10 pm

      Bulls 96 is the greatest team of all time Period

    • Yeng Vang

      June 1, 2022 at 1:15 pm

      There will be a team where you’ll be like, “Nobody is beating this team” and when KD went to the 73 win team, the NBA was already over. We didn’t even wait until the regular season to start because we already knew who is winning the Finals. 😂😂

    I love Curry, but he has does not have enough accomplishments to be top 10 yet. He is top 20

    • Alfanzo Rodriguez

      June 1, 2022 at 1:23 pm

      @Jeremy Tarter respectfully I’m putting Steph over wilt or Hakeem😂

    • Jeremy Tarter

      June 1, 2022 at 1:27 pm

      @Alfanzo Rodriguez I’m not. Wilt has most of the individual records and is the greatest athlete in the history of the nba. Hakeem is the most skilled Center in the history of the NBA. Him and Michael Jordan probably did the most with the least amount of hall of farmers on their teams than any other player in the history of the NBA.

      @Jeremy Tarter curry >>> Tim Duncan

    • Jeremy Tarter

      June 1, 2022 at 2:32 pm

      @Lunatic Fringe Tim has just as many mvp’s, more championships, more finals mvp’s, and was a better player on defense

    Everyone keeps saying Steph made people shoot 3s. Can you name any player coming into the league the last 3 years who play like Steph? Trae? Give me one more name. Just one. Kids only shooting 3s.. come on get real

    • Justin Annanmanthodo

      June 1, 2022 at 12:29 pm

      There was once a stat I saw that said teams back then would take 14 3s, combined. Guess how many they take now. 71. 71 3s between both teams. Curry revolutionized the game, not that hard to see.

    Pippen lead the Bulls In Reb, Asst, STL, during both Three Peats.

    • Cj

      June 1, 2022 at 1:10 pm

      Yeah but apparently only points matter to people lol, jimmy butler could cook mj I firmly believe, people just overhype Jordan cause he made everything personal with opponents

    • Markos Berndt

      June 1, 2022 at 1:13 pm

      Pippin is overlooked a lot… he was a solid defender as well. Jordan was great but I don’t think the success he had would have happened without Pippen.

    • Malcom Smith

    Not to be disrespectful but we all know that curry is the greatest shooter of all time like come can we stop talking about that

    What the triangle offense allowed Jordan to do was play the whole lot of the regular season and the playoffs without wearing out. The triangle offense created a Bulls team that could win a majority of regular season games without him exerting much effort and allow him to have off games during the playoffs. When a player reaches the level of greatness as Jordan, stamina is the only opponent. Jordan was able to save his health for when it really mattered.

    • Lil' Bit About Everything

      June 1, 2022 at 9:56 pm

      Never have I read a more simplified yet truer statement about the Triangle. Preach!!!

    • caper087

      June 2, 2022 at 12:04 am

      Maybe you should coach the knicks lol

  11. Amoni Scarsayzie

    Amare is a good addition

  12. Fight Finish

    The GOAT and the GSOAT

  14. Malcom Smith

    June 1, 2022 at 1:46 pm

    Steph Curry folds in big times so stop the nonsense he is the greatest shooter but that all he holds on his resume. Jordan thirved because he had no competition. All the great dynastys were litteraly in rebuild mode when jordan was winning. When Jordan meet dyanstys he failed just look at history. Before Bird and Magic were at the end of their careers he got beat over and over again even with the Pitsons he got elimaninated for 3 or 4 straight years out the playoffs when he faced them. Now when those teams and players started to dismantle and rebuild he started to win and lets not forget he also played in a time where the NBA was expanding with new teams. Jordan never beat great teams he beat teams or coaches.

    • Marko Zbunjol

      June 1, 2022 at 3:20 pm

      lol stop it, utah jazz and phoenix are all time great team without rings and portland with drexler and boys are also great team. Or how about Orlando, Pistons, Indiana all great teams. Jordan beat more 60+ teams then anybody but he stop them to became dynastys. Thats why he is greatest think about it

    • Malcom Smith

      June 1, 2022 at 3:38 pm

      @Marko Zbunjol Jazz were never considered a great dynasty not Portland not Phoenix. Did the have a star player yes (Malone, Drexler, Barkley) but they weren’t a dynasty. You did mention Pistons but you failed to mention when Jordan couldn’t beat them for 3 consecutive years to advance in the playoffs….y’all paint the narrative like Jordan hasn’t lost but he did. He played 15 seasons and won 6 times what happened to the other 9 seasons 🤷🏾‍♂️

    How many rings did Jordan win without Phil Jackson: 0.
    How many rings did Phil Jackson win without Jordan: 5.

    • Max Lowson

      June 1, 2022 at 2:44 pm

      how many rings did phil jackson win without each of the 2 greatest duos in nba history: 0
      also jordan and pippen entered their prime when phil got there, they wouldve won without him

    • Doesnt Matter

      June 1, 2022 at 2:51 pm

      Lmfao. Phil jacksom got those with 2 of the top ten greatest players of all time. 3rings. But kobe was Jordan Jr. When he won 2 more with Kobe and Gasol he STILL HAD KOBE. Triangle offense is good for flowing offense but when the game was on the line Phil had TWO OF THE GREATEST CLUTCH PLAYERS OF ALL TIME.

    • Doesnt Matter

      June 1, 2022 at 2:52 pm

      You can make argument Mark Jackson didn’t win with GSW but we ALL. Know Curry ran the show and GSW was well on their way. They were just maturing into themselves.

    • Alex Lindbjerg

      June 1, 2022 at 3:01 pm

      For all the Kobe comments..
      I don’t believe that Kobe nor Jordan would have turned into the players we know and love.
      They were great players and having a great coach multiplies that.
      There’s a reason for all the accolades Phil Jackson got.
      One of them is the ability to utilize great talent.
      Just look at the Nets this year if you believe that you don’t need good coaching to achieve what Phil Jackson did.

    Y’all wanna know how you know lebrons the greatest ? Because even when he’s not the topic they find ways to bring him up. They go out of their way to put Michael over bron for no reason 😭

    • Malcom Smith

      June 1, 2022 at 2:55 pm

      It’s crazy it’s like they feel threatened 😂

    • jordan young

      June 1, 2022 at 3:01 pm

      @Malcom Smith I can merch they wake up and think bout bron immediately

    • Dexxomerta

      June 1, 2022 at 3:22 pm

      Jordan hasn’t played in 20yrs they do the same with him 🤷🏾‍♂️

  18. Dwain Punnett

    June 1, 2022 at 2:11 pm

    So is curry better than lebron then/ i will say yes only because curry did it with only one team he didn’t go players they came to him. So to me i want to see a curry and mj for goat debate no more lebron

    Amare sounds like such a friendly guy

  20. devante Gibson

    June 1, 2022 at 2:47 pm

    Curry is the greatest player ever WITHOUT THE BALL! give him the ball and he breaks the game. Period

  21. Dashing Dreww

    June 1, 2022 at 2:49 pm

    Bron changed the game by having a position less player and the importance of longevity and taking care of your body

    • Dexxomerta

      June 1, 2022 at 3:20 pm

      The rules changing made position less basketball possible

  22. Truuee

    June 1, 2022 at 3:11 pm

    When it comes to changing the game, it’s Steph and Klay both who have changed the game.

    I’m glad this discussion was reframed from an other shows from who had the greater impact to how they impacted. It made for a much more insightful conversation, nicely done whoever made that choice
