When it comes to being a point guard in the NBA, none have done it better than Earvin 'Magic' Johnson. Even though he wasn't the size of a prototypical point guard, his 6'9 frame helped him become one of the best passers in NBA history, leading the Showtime Lakers to multiple championships, even as early on as his rookie year.
Likewise, you cannot deny that Stephen Curry is among the best point guards in the game right now, if not the best, with his immense shooting range which has been causing headaches for opposing defenses ever since he came into the league in 2009.
But there is one thing both Magic and Steph have in common, and it suggests that the two are a lot closer in terms of career achievements than one may think.
Not even the likes of Oscar Robertson or Isiah Thomas have done such a thing.
Magic has won 5 championships in his illustrious career, including one in his rookie season where he also took home the Finals MVP. Johnson also has 3 MVP trophy's under his belt, making him one of the most decorated point guards in history, and that's before we look at his career numbers.
As we all know, Curry has two NBA championship rings, but no Finals MVP's, which does hurt him when being compared to other greats of the game. However, he does have those two MVP's, and is on track to demolish countless three-point shooting records when his career is over and done with.
With all that being said, and as Curry's career continues, it becomes mighty hard to not rank Curry in the elite tier of point guards in NBA history, and when all is said and done, Steph could be the second-greatest PG the NBA has ever seen.
