Michael Jordan Claims Warriors' Steph Curry Isn't Hall of Famer ‘Yet'

Through his first 10 NBA seasons, Steph Curry has won two MVPs (one unanimous) and three NBA titles. He's been named to six All-Star teams and has a scoring championship under his belt. He's on pace to destroy the all time record for most career 3-pointers.

By most accounts, he's changed the way young players shoot the basketball.

That should be enough to make Curry a Hall of Famer, right?

Not according to Michael Jordan.

"He's still a great player," Jordan said on NBC's "Today" on Monday. "Not a Hall of Famer yet, though. He's not."

MJ, you are the GOAT, but this is a freezing cold take.

How did this come up? About six years ago, Jordan was asked to pick four players he would want to team up with in a fictional pick-up game. He chose Hakeem Olajuwon, Magic Johnson, Scottie Pippen and James Worthy.

NBC's Craig Melvin asked Jordan if anything had changed since he picked those four and if he would swap out any of them for any current players.

Jordan said he would not, and Melvin threw Curry's name out there, asking Jordan if Curry should be offended.

"I hope not," Jordan said, before claiming Curry isn't yet a Hall of Fame.

Curry has revolutionized the way the game is being played, just like some guy named Jordan did in the 1980s and 90s.

Jordan did a lot of good during his playing career, but since he hung up that Wizards jersey, not much has gone right for him. These comments are just another black eye on Mike.
