On March 14, Stephen Curry turned 30 years old. It’s a special birthday for No. 30 on the Golden State Warriors, so we are celebrating it by ranking his 30 greatest moments.
Stephen Curry is an all-time great, with two MVPs, two titles, a myriad of records and counting. At the rate he’s going, he’ll end up a top-15 player of all time. In fact, the Golden State Warriors point guard could retire tomorrow with enough accolades to warrant top-30 placement.
But 30 is not enough for Curry, in all-time standing nor age to call it quits. It is also not enough in terms of spots on a list ranking the greatest moments of his career. The man who wears No. 30 in honor of his father, Dell, has mixed his dad’s pure shooting stroke with a level of skill, creativity, athleticism and I.Q. that add up to make a basketball player unlike any the world has ever seen. Oh, and I almost forgot to mention what distance he can pull up from.
Coming up with this list was painstaking. It was also emotional, nostalgic and extremely satisfying, as someone who has watched Curry grow game by game, year by year, from a skinny 6’2″ rookie with undeniable talent but underdeveloped tools into a sturdy 6’3″ veteran who has honed his craft beyond what was ever expected, even by his biggest supporters.
So, here it is. The top 30 moments of No. 30’s career, as of March 14, 2018, his 30th birthday.
