Allen Iverson has been taking Steph Curry’s name for a long time now. After picking up Steph Curry in his ‘top five’ list during last year’s NBA All-Star weekend, Iverson has repeatedly said that Steph Curry would be his point guard if he ever assembles an all-time starting five. Curry was deeply touched with Allen Iverson’s statement and saved his comment on his phone to keep inspiring himself.
In the latest episode of All The Smoke, Steph Curry sat down with Stephen Jackson and Matt Barnes to discuss his NBA status. The superstar broke his hand a few days ago and has been out of the sport for a while now. However, the six-time NBA All-star took out some time to deliver his opinion on Allen Iverson’s comment. When he was reminded about Iverson’s all-time starting five, Steph Curry said, “You know what's funny -- I have that saved on my phone."
The Warriors superstar further said that getting into Allen Iverson’s top 5 list is a big thing for him. He said, “I ain't never had a big head. That dude who I picked up a lot of game and inspiration from -- he's now looking at my game. Some OGs, they don't want to relinquish the praise. The same way we respect the OGs, we want it both ways. So when you do hear that, that means something." Take a look at Steph Curry’s exclusive interview for All the Smoke.
