1. Stephen Curry
Was there any doubt that Stephen Curry would sit at the top of this list?
Curry has nothing left to prove. A two-time MVP and three-time champion, Steph has revolutionized the game of basketball. His marksmanship has placed him in the record books and his legacy will live forever.
Although his peak statistic season occurred in 2016, Curry has not slowed down. Putting up his best NBA Finals performance to date, Steph averaged 30.5 points per game versus the Toronto Raptors. Scoring a postseason career-high 47 points in Game 3 of the Finals, Curry proved he could deliver at the highest level.
Entering the 2019-20 NBA season, Curry has his back to the wall. The departure of Kevin Durant and a massive injury to Klay Thompson leaves Curry with no other option but to dominate. If he doesn’t have an MVP level season, the Golden State Warriors will fall out of championship contention.
Assuming that he is going to continue playing at an elite level, prepare to see something special from Curry. This season is his revenge tour and we should expect nothing but the best from Curry.
