Stephen Curry was initially compared to Steve Nash early in his NBA career, but he has created his own style of play with his handle and perimeter shooting.
Nash was hired by the Golden State Warriors this offseason as a player development consultant.
“I wouldn’t compare him to Michael Jordan–I wouldn’t compare anybody to Michael,” Nash said. “But I would say Steph is turning into a historical category of his own, in a way.
"He’s in the prime of his career and will be for a few years and the way he’s improving and the level he’s playing at is… I think he’s unlike anyone else. His ability to make shots and still handle the play-making duties is historic.
"I think you’d be hard pressed to find a player more skilled than him in the history of the game."
Nash was asked if Curry is even better this season.
"Just gets better and better. Game gets sharper. And I still think he’s going to understand things more clearly as well. His skill level improves, which is kind of alarming,
"He’s maybe as skilled a player as we’ve ever had in this game."
