    So steph curry is better than magic
    alright then 2k

    15

    Well this is 31 year old Magic, so that may be why. Young Magic is easily best PG of all time

    THANK YOU so much, because i thought everyone forgot about how amazing magic was

    or john stockton

    stockton could never lead a team

    0

    true that. but he was an insane playmaker

    -1

    yes he was the best team leader but the best point guard has to be good at every attribute thats what i think

    0

    This is all IMO. I don't expect everyone to agree with me. A great point guard doesn't have to be good at everything. Stockton was a crazy passer, confident shooter, and great perimeter defender. He was never really known for being a great post defender, grabbing boards, or putting up huge point totals. Thomas had a somewhat similar game, but usually put up more points and fewer assists. Magic, however, is harder to compare since most SFs aren't even that tall. It's like comparing an average modern day center to Manute Bol in terms of height. Of course he is going to be a better post defender and get more rebounds. He didn't record as many steals, though. He wasn't a great rebounder. He wasn't too fast. By your standards, that would mean Oscar Robertson is the best, since he is the only person to average a triple-double and also would have put up pretty good steal and decent block numbers if they had started recording them earlier.

    Stockton averaged 10 pts a game he was not a great scorer

    0

    I clearly said Stockton was not known for putting up large point totals. What I meant by "confident shooter," if that's what you're talking about, is that Stockton averaged over 50% of his field goals and over 35% behind the 3-point.
    Also, what do you mean he averaged 10 PPG? Over his career he averages 13 PPG, and even had 3 17 PPG seasons. He had only 4 seasons with 10 PPG or less in his almost 20 years. '84 - '85, his rookie year, (5.6), '85 - '86 (7.7), '86 - '87 (7.9), and '02 - '03, his final year, (10.8). He ranks #42 on the all-time points list. It might not sound very impressive until you consider that he is the all-time assists leader, and has over 3500 more assist than Jason Kidd, #2.

    don't forget oscar robertson

    that is true he is definitaly top 2 or 3

    Prime Magic is a 97 which is on par with prime LeBron.

    that was not prime lebron that was lebron in his athletic prime his player prime is right now with the cavs he is better overall

    No he isn't. His numbers are worse and his shooting percentages outside of 5 feet is atrocious. 2012 is far and away the best season of his career.

    -1

    yes he is better his numbers will be worse because there aren't guys like wade to lob it to him at the rim and the pace is slower he is doing more with less

    -1

    If you're going by that his best year was probably 06-07 when he got to the finals practically by himself. I think his heat years was his prime though, and he's definitely not as good now as he was then.

    0

    he had some support in the Big Z, but i more or less agreee with you.

    gotta take into consideration curry is a much better shooter than magic. thats probably why he's only better by 1 overall.

    -1

    gotta take into account there have never been a playmaker that can even be compared to Magic

    john stockton?
    isiah thomas?

    1

    Shooting matters much more when it comes to overall, and there are way more shooting stats than playmaking stats. Not to mention Stockton is statistically the better passer.

    magic was amazing but in terms of skill wise curry is top 5 as a overall player magic was better so yeah it depends how you look at it

    1, Steph is actually strong, stronger than Magic ever was, he can deadlift 400 pounds. And second, 2 years ago Steph was averaging 24 and 8 and starting in the All-Star Game

    -2

    I hope you're just commenting this desperately trying to get upvotes, since there are clearly TWO other magic cards rated much higher than Curry.

    this will be a somewhat cheesy budget card when it comes out. the stats are good enough to hit a jumper if open. he's a 6'9 PG with a 90 post control and 96 post hook to bully the smaller PG's, great playmaking of course, great finishing, great defense, and an alright vertical and Boxout, so he will get some rebounds over bigs.
