Watch the full interview with Lefty Driesell in the video player above, which will begin momentarily.
In College Park on Saturday to watch No. 4 Maryland beat No. 18 Purdue, 72-61, legendary Maryland coach Lefty Driesell spoke one-on-one with CSN's Chick Hernandez about a range of topics, an interview that you saw in Saturday's 10 p.m. edition of SportsNet Central.
One topic the two hit on? Former Davidson star and reigning NBA MVP Stephen Curry, who just this week dropped 51 points on the Washington Wizards.
Maybe Driesell is biased when it comes to Curry. He did, you know, coach the Davidson Wildcats from 1960-69. He even recruited Curry's father, Dell, to College Park, but lost out on the future NBA guard to Virginia Tech.
"The game has changed so much, but we got a guy named Steph Curry who played at Davidson back in the day and now is ripping up the NBA," Hernandez said, prefacing his question. "When you watch a guy like that, what do you think?"
If nothing else from Driesell, you know he is always willing to elaborate.
“I’m going to tell you, I don’t know much about anything but basketball,” Driesell said. “I’m saying right now with the rules like they are -- you can’t discount [Bill] Russell and [Bob] Cousy because they didn’t have a three-point shot -- but I think he’s the best player of all-time.
“When I watch him play -- and I don’t see him much because they don’t televise him on the East Coast -- I watch him. I don’t watch the game. It’s amazing how he gets open and he can rebound and he’s a good defensive player and he’s a great passer. You know, Pete Maravich used to work at my camp all the time.
"Pete was a great passer, but this kid Steph Curry is a better passer than Pete, I think. I mean, he’s unbelievable -- what he did to the Wizards the other night."
For the year, Curry is averaging 29.8 points, 6.4 assists, and 5.3 rebounds per game while shooting 51 percent from the field and 45 percent from three-point range.
