    Measured by their impact on the sport (not skill alone), who do you think will ultimately be remembered as greater - Stephen Curry or Lebron James?
    In 10 years who will be more of a household name?

    Lebron is in the conversation for top 3. I dont even think Curry is a unanimous top 15.

    This.
    I will say as far as impact on style of play Steph enters the conversation.

    But LeBron was the greater player top 5 overall
    Unquestionably the best SF ever imho
    Bird as great as he was it's s not even truly close.
    Only Duncan and Jordan or more definitive in my eyes as the clear goat at their spots.

    Did someone just watch that bullshit steph curry facebook documentary that keeps getting advertised?

    Really though, it's not even close enough to debate. Curry will go down as a great player. Lebron is going down as one of the two greatest that ever played the game.

    I mean some people saying curry isn’t even in the conversation are underappreciating how great of a player he is. Smaller guys rarely get the dues they deserve if curry already has 3 championships and if he manages another 1 or 2 titles that’s putting him in Kobe territory. Honestly I don’t really give a shit about all these debates, all I know is curry has been the most exciting player to watch in basketball since he was at Davidson. I’d argue more entertaining than LBJ because he does it with skill not natural strength.

    Lebron is the Wilt of this generation. Cute longevity marks but head to head he was everyones punching bag.

    Dirk just shit on him again


    Who does James have bragging rights over? Rose, George, the great Al Holford

    The question cannot be answered correctly because it’s really two separate questions with two different answers.

    LeBron will be remembered 10 years, 20 years, 50 years from now more than Curry. He has been the face of the league for 12, maybe even 15 years. He’s been marketed, promoted, recycled into not only basketball culture but everyday culture from Sprite commercials to rap songs to podcasts to Boys & Girls Club Decision specials to the Heatles back to the Comic Sans Prodigal Son Homecoming. Curry’s most memorable moments off the court involve his daughter at his post games at the Finals and his thirsty wife seeking media attention. It’s no contest. LBron will be remembered more.

    But the question slickly asks about actual impact on the sport. Curry’s ridiculous shooting ability and range has been the first wave of a burgeoning analytical strategy based on three point shooting that has not only taken over most of the league already but changed the game and game strategy. Maybe the league was headed that way regardless. But Curry was like a harbinger. And his shooting exploits have been perhaps the evidence some teams, some GMs, some coaches needed to see to be swayed into believing that’s where basketball was headed. Curry’s impact, good, bad, or otherwise, has been greater on the game of basketball. And I don’t think it’s close.

    But LeBron will be remembered more.

    Come on now...

    You can hate on LBJ and rank him about as low as 5. You can love Steph and rank him borderline at around 10.

    After trading away No. 4 draft-pick Stephon Marbury last year, the Bucks get it right in '98 by stealing the marketable and talented Robert Traylor from the Mavs for an overhyped foreign prospect.

    In terms of legacy and celebrity, there really isn’t a current player that can match LeBron. Honestly, the player who might have the best chance to become as big a household name might be Zion. Greatness on the court is just one part of the equation. Personality, charisma, marketability play big roles in fame and ultimately being remembered. It’s why guys like Durant and Kawhi no matter what they accomplish on the court will never be bigger than LeBron. And they won’t be viewed as greater than LeBron as far as common perception goes even if they do surpass him as players.

    With Curry, perhaps a better comparison would be the likes of Harden and Russell Westbrook. Of those three, who will be remembered as the greater player 10, 20 years from now. Steph has the championships and the multiple MVPs. Harden has a memorable gimmick with his “beard.” Russ has historical triple-double seasons. Who will be remembered more of those three League MVPs?

    It's closer than many people think.

    They're both arguably on the all-time starting 5.
