Ray Allen on Stephen Curry: “I think Steph is in a category of his own”
When you hear the older, “get off my lawn” generation of NBA players saying Stephen Curry is not all that, you’ll notice it’s almost always someone overly concerned about his legacy.
You’ll also notice it’s not one of the game’s great shooters — they all admire Curry.
Add Ray Allen to the mix. The last great sharpshooter who is now retired and golfing a lot in Miami is a Curry fan. SLAM Magazine asked him about Curry and here’s his response (hat tip Eye on Basketball).
Shooters respect shooters, and Ray Allen is far from the only one who tips his cap to Curry.

The only question about Curry is if he can sustain this kind of success, as Ray Allen did over a lengthy NBA career. Shooters can last a long time in the NBA — come the day Curry loses a step and his handle doesn’t create the same space, he will be insanely dangerous off the ball (so long as he accepts that role).
