Michael Jordan: Steph Curry is not a Hall of Famer yet
Leave it to Michael Jordan to throw some shade at a current NBA star.
Jordan sat down with NBC’s Craig Melvin for an interview on “Today” to talk about the two medical clinics he and his family funded in Charlotte to help underprivileged people. During the interview, MJ was asked whether he would still take Magic Johnson, Hakeem Olajuwon, James Worthy and Scottie Pippen as his four teammates going up against anyone. He said he would. Melvin brought up Steph Curry, and that’s when MJ said Curry wasn’t a Hall of Famer yet.

“He’s still a great player. Not a Hall of Famer yet, though. He’s not,” MJ said, punctuating his point.
Jordan is notorious for giving great players a hard time. He used to do the same with LeBron James.
Curry has already made six All-Star teams, won three championships, two NBA MVP awards, a scoring title, and he is the greatest shooter in the history of the sport. He is a career 43.6 percent 3-point shooter. He has revolutionized the game. If he retired tomorrow, he’d be a Hall of Famer. Michael is crazy for saying otherwise.
