Why Cowherd says Steph still 'completely disrespected' in NBA

LeBron, Steph

The NBA unveiled the 2021 All-Star player pool this week and it caused some massive controversy when Phoenix Suns guard Devin Booker initially was left off the list.

Booker eventually earned his second NBA All-Star nod in replacing the injured Anthony Davis of the Los Angeles Lakers. However, that didn't stop NBA fans, and LeBron James and Draymond Green, from clamoring Booker was disrespected. 

According to Fox Sports' Colin Cowherd though, Booker isn't the one being disrespected. That title goes to Steph Curry. 

"People talk about Devin Booker being disrespected," Cowherd said on "The Herd with Colin Cowherd" on Thursday. "Has Devin Booker won multiple titles? Has Devin Booker been an unanimous MVP? … Steph Curry is completely disrespected."

Cowherd went on to say "only three players in basketball that have changed the game," listing Michael Jordan and James as the first two before divulging into Curry.

"Number three is Steph Curry," he said. "Steph Curry changed how all basketball is played.

"When you do a fast break now in basketball, even if you have the numbers advantage, you're allowed to pull up for a 3-point shot. Your high school and college coach would've benched you for doing that. Now you are encouraged analytically."

Regardless of Curry's three NBA championships and two NBA MVPs, the 32-year-old still receives a good amount of criticism regarding his accomplishments. That didn't stop him from locking up his seventh NBA All-Star selection last week though. 

The debate over Curry's greatness is not one lost on Dub Nation, but from Warriors fans perspectives, it must be nice having someone who agrees with them regarding Curry's legendary status.
