The player of the NBA, Ray Allen express why not it should to be compared with Stephen Curry of the Golden State Warriors.

NBA Hall of Famer Ray Allen is sure that he and Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry are not the same.

As Stephen Curry moves closer to dethroning Ray Allen on the most 3-point shots in league history, comparisons between the two aforementioned have become unavoidable. In fact, Allen himself was recently questioned to reveal his thoughts on the matter.

According to the NBA legend, his game was completely different from Curry when it came to scoring. Allen reckoned he was more like Klay Thompson, Splash’s brother from the Warriors than Curry.

“In my comparison with Klay [Thompson], Klay moves without the ball. You can change the defense. When it opens, the whole world opens, similar to how I played “, evaluated Allen through” The Dan Patrick Show “. “I think Steph is in a lane of her own that I don’t think she has [una comparación]”.

Instead, Allen compared Curry’s style of play to that of Portland Trail Blazers star Damian Lillard.

“It can be said that he [Curry] and Damian Lillard, with his ability to shoot from deep and be able to handle the ball and get into the paint, “added the two-time NBA champion. “But Steph gets to painting more than Lillard.”

“I would compare Klay more to me and Reggie [Miller] because we are moving without the ball, we are a little on the weak side a lot, and we throw to [Richard] Hamilton even though Rip was not a great volume 3-point shooter, ”he continued. “But being able to move the defense and get out of pin-downs and screens and shoot in transition without touching the ball is a real talent.”

If Curry manages to knock down more than nine triples against the Philadelphia 76ers, he will eventually outpace Allen and set a new NBA record.
