The Golden State Warriors have been blessed with a few all-time great players throughout their history, and with Stephen Curry‘s recent accomplishment, it’s time to take a look back at who should have the claim as the Warriors’ greatest player of all time.
If you didn’t know, Curry needed 19 points against the Denver Nuggets to become the top scorer in franchise history.
The Warriors have had tremendous talent pass through. But, between Stephen Curry and Wilt Chamberlain, who has been the franchise’s best player?
Curry surpassed Chamberlain, who played for Golden State as a rookie during the 1959-1960 season and then through the early 60s. Wilt, who still holds the record for most points in a game throughout the entire league’s history, helped move the franchise from Philadelphia to San Francisco.
It wasn’t just that Curry passed Chamberlain, but he did it in an impressive fashion. Curry, with the Warriors desperately needing a win, dropped 53 points, drilling ten triples for his 18th career game with ten or more threes.
We’ve known that Curry is among the best Warriors of all time for quite a while, but if he at the top, let’s look at what a case for both the two-time MVP and then arguably the most dominant center to ever take the court would be.
