Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr explained how superstar Stephen Curry is similar to Chicago Bulls legend Michael Jordan in “a lot of ways.”
Curry and Jordan both own countless moments of greatness where they hit clutch shots or displayed their skills in a way that new others have, which makes sense as to why Kerr puts them in a similar class.
Steve Kerr: "I think Steph in a lot of ways is like Michael Jordan because there are so many moments that stand out that they all kind of bleed together. … Maybe that's the true sign of greatness."

There’s no question that Curry and Jordan own their fair share of great moments, as both players boast multiple MVP awards and multiple NBA titles.
Kerr, who played with Jordan on the Bulls, is one of the lucky people that has gotten to be around both superstars during each player’s dominance in the NBA.
While Curry is clearly one of the best players in the NBA at the moment, it might be hard for some people put him in the same class as Jordan.
The Hall of Famer won six NBA titles in his storied career and six NBA Finals MVPs. Curry has yet to win an NBA Finals MVP despite being a three-time NBA champion.
Still, Curry is closing in on the record for the most 3-pointers in NBA history set by the great Ray Allen.
Curry’s ability to shoot the 3-pointer has transformed the NBA in his career, and he is widely regarded as the greatest shooter to ever play in the league.
However, Jordan’s five MVPs and 10 NBA scoring titles are hard to match in a battle of greatness.
