Steph one of Tatum's top five players in NBA right now

Steph Curry Jayson Tatum

Everybody has their own top-five list when it comes to current NBA players. However, a proper list has to have Steph Curry somewhere.

Boston Celtics star Jayson Tatum knows that to be true. 

Tatum lists Curry, his former Warriors teammate Kevin Durant, LeBron James, Anthony Davis and James Harden as the five best players in the NBA right now, in no particular order. 

"I really respect guys that got championships," Tatum said on the "Million Dollaz Worth of Game" podcast. 

Harden is the only player of the five listed who hasn't won a title yet. 

Tatum played Curry twice this season, and the two-time MVP put on a show in two Warriors losses. Curry scored 38 points against the Celtics on Feb. 2 and 47 points on April 17. 

"I think something about Steph, he moves well without the ball and they know when to find him," Tatum said. "Anytime he gets it, he looks at the rim, you might jump. He's shooting from the parking lot, but you have to get right in him."

The Warriors failed to make the playoffs for the second straight season after five trips in a row to the NBA Finals, but that wasn't Curry's fault by any means. At 33 years old, he led the league in scoring with 32 points per game and is an MVP finalist. 

Tatum might not face the Warriors a lot as a player in the Eastern Conference, but he can't deny just how great Curry was for Golden State this season.
