In the mind of Golden State Warriors forward Andre Iguodala, Stephen Curry is one of the best players at his position of all-time

Iguodala told The Athletic’s Marcus Thompson that he considers Curry, his teammate, the “the second-best ever.”Thompson explained in a tweet that Iguodala was calling Curry the second-best point guard ever – not player ever- something Iguodala has reportedly said about Curry before.

“I think he’s the second best ever,” Iguodala told Thompson. “I always thought that about him. I knew but other people didn’t know.”

Iguodala’s quote was part of an answer about how Curry helped the Warriors come back from a 2-1 deficit to the Memphis Grizzlies in the 2015 playoffs. Curry scored 33 points in a crucial Game 4 win, then 32 points in the Warriors’ Game 6 close-out.

According to Thompson, the Warriors’ resilience in that series helped shape their dynasty, as they knew they could truly compete for a championship thereafter.

Curry boasts a strong resume of NBA achievements in his 10-year NBA career, and it should continue to grow. He is already a three-time NBA champion, two-time MVP (including the first-ever unanimous MVP), six-time All-Star, and five-time All-NBA team member. He’s also on pace to become the NBA’s all-time leader in three-point percentage.

As Thompson outlined in his story, Curry has racked up plenty of memorable playoff moments over the course of the Warriors’ five-year run.

With the chance to continue to add more moments and achievements to his resume, perhaps more people will soon echo Iguodala’s opinion.
