Yes.

#1. Stephen Curry is the only unanimous MVP
#2. Has the 3rd highest winshares in nba history behind MJ and CP3
#3. Is a better rebounder than Magic. Averages 5 at 6'3 while magic averaged 7 at almost 7' while playing C at times
#4. Magic Johnsons only scoring skill was layups and a sky hook on occasion while curry can make a shot from anywhere. And I mean anywhere from the court.
#5. Curry is a better defender. His drtg is better than magics. Curry averages more steals and blocks than magic which is sad with him being nearly 7' and all.
#6 The only thing Magic is better at is passing but his assist to turnover is less than 3.5 while currys is almost 3.3. Debate if u want but curry is thd goat pg.

No,there is no chance curry is the best pg of all time . He is also not even the best right now. Russel westbrook is the current best and their is no stopping that. When russ had a terrible team with no other all stars he averaged a triple double. when Curry had a bad team he had nothing close to that stat line. Also curry"s career stats are not even close to russ. Finally russ is just the better player he has a good three point shot great defense and an unstoppable drive

Lemme destroy your argumenr real quick. First off some of the stuff I said about magic applies to Russ. Also stat wise. Westbrook is a known statpadder. In clutch situations hes passed when he was wide open to get assists. Hes pushed his bigs like steven adams out of the way to get rebounds. Bigs have also cleared the way for him just ti get those. Also lets debate the stats of the last 4 years. In the last 4 years curry leads in every category except for rebounds, assists, and blocks. Evdry other stat including drtg and dws. True shooting percentage. Winshares in general. Ortg. And to think hes doing all of this with less than a 30 usage rate while westbrook has almost 45 usage rate. Curry and Westbrook aren't even close. In fact u fan apply every single thing I said about curry to kyrie, harden, cp3, wall, and even Nikola Jokic. Theres no question that curry is the best guard. And u talk about his shooting and defense. His true shooting is 53 which is average at best and his drtg and winshares are just that. Average. Im not saying russ isnt good but he is definitely not on the level of steph curry. Also curry has more 2nd round and playoff appearances than russ and russ has had kd, 6moty harden, ibaka, and others while for most of his career curry has had monta ellis, klay, and draymond eith kd just jumping ship. Statistically curry is by far the best pg

Buddy get off your high horse we all can tell ur a gsw fan and love your precious steph. First off i am a 28 year knics fan so there is no bias in this. In the goat debate it is mostly jordan or bron, the ppl who say jordan go by stats which does not measure the skill of another player. So In my opinion bron is the Goat the best all around basketball player ever because even though jordan is the best SCORER of all time basketball is not all about rings and stats. So back to our argument throwing stats away because with curry"s team it"s easy to get stats steph curry is not a BETTER Player/point guard then russel westbrook,jerry west, John stockton, Magic johnson and the list keeps going.

Bro how did we go from curry being the goat pg to lebron and mj? Also You are the one that brought up stats. And how is it easier to score with a better team. Its statistically proven that the better the team the worse the stats. Your not using any factual evidence. Stats and rings dont matter what? Also Im.a wizards fan. I hate the warriors but im.not bias and I know when someone is an all tiem player. Stats do not lie. Its that simple. Ur not provuding any sort of evidence that any of those players are even close to curry. Jerry west? The same jerry west who couldnt make the playoffs in the qeakest era of all time. John stockton? The same john stockton whos spent his career as MJs punching bag. Westbrook is just not good enough. Hes not better than curry. Curry has the highest true shootingnpercentage of all time. Hes the most efficient scorer of all time. You dont even realize that curry is better all around than every single pg u just named. You have not given any factual evidence to support what your saying. You're spewing nonsense but you dont have the evidence to back it up. I hate people like you who think they know everything but have no clue what they're talking about. Curry averaged 30/10 in the greatest era of basketball. Has 2 MVPs. 2 scoring titles. 3 rings. Dont say accomplishments dont matter either. If bron had no rings do you honestly think he would even be considered a top 10 player. Same with mj. If he had no rings he would have already been forgotten. Curry has the stats and the accomplishments. Since I know your ignorant you'll want to keep battling so ima post my discord link so we can keep debating. https://discord.gg...

Ok your argument is pretty good but i"m sorry curry is not the best pg of all time,let"s go back to magic since you wanna keep talking about awards here you go Magic was unlike any point guard that came before him. He made the Showtime Lakers the "Showtime Lakers" and led them two five NBA titles. Magic was named NBA Finals MVP 3 times and NBA MVP 3 times. He finished his career with 10,141 assists also he has more assists per game rebounds per game and blocks per game. Then on top of that he has more total points more total assists more total rebounds and more total steals. Finnaly, magic has the better fg % than curry. I rest my case
