**Disclaimer:** This thread is about KDs legacy in the all-time ranking, not how talented KD is.... --- For most of 2010s, Curry has been accepted as the best PG in the NBA and is the GOAT-shooter by a landslide. He won 2 MVPs and earned 3 Championships as objectively the [best](https://twitter.com/SportInfo247/status/1130468705891180544?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw) [player](https://imgur.com/a/Tgf2uiY) throughout their dynasty era. Not to mention how Curry is massively impactful as 5v5 player to make his teammates around him better. At this point, its safe to say Curry is the 2nd best player behind LeBron. KD is a fantastic pure scorer and nobody can take it away from him. He is awesome as 1v1 player. But he never won a Championship as the best player for OKC and only has only 1 MVP. KD was never a 5v5 player who could elevate his teammates or reached Curry insane peak. KD does have a bit more longevity than Curry, but its not enough. Most people dont rate [Karl Malone](https://old.reddit.com/r/nba/comments/i9gkg5/who_do_you_rate_higher_steph_curry_or_karl_malone/) ahead of [Curry](https://old.reddit.com/r/nba/comments/kid0ly/who_ranks_higher_steph_curry_or_karl_malone/) in all-time ranking despite the formers longevity blows out of the water in comparison. **As the title titles, do you think KD will be borderline top 10 player like Curry before retiring?**
They’re around each other in most people’s rankings
Dude you literally make this exact post every few days
i think theyre both 15-20 which is all so close it doesnt matter
He is still one of the greatest scorers to ever play the game, so he should at least be in that debate
No. What has he proven? That a superstar can win on the best team ever? I sometimes cant help but wonder about the fact that so many players legacy namely Dame and LBJ would look so much better than they already are if KD wasnt such a snake.
Factoring in the fact that KD blew a 3-1 lead and joined a 73-9 team... no
I dont think KD will ever be considered top 10, but I think Curry would be if he got another ring on the Warriors.
KD should already be higher up on all time lists than Steph. He was very obviously the second best player of the 2010s. He was elite for twice the amount of time Curry has been.
Your legacy is created when you’re career is done. Kd will be top 3 without any doubt, And I’m a Thunder fan. He’s got plenty of time to keep killing people in the nba
There is basically no chance KD becomes a top ten player, let along top 3. His championships while still championships are still pretty worthless compared to other players.
There are two things wrong with this question, it says Steph Curry is a Top 10 player All Time, which he isnt and also assumes I dont already have KD higher than Steph on my ranking, which I do. I will say they are on the same tier of greatness.
Kd is better than curry.
Strictly in terms of legacy he probably isnt. Better individual player yes.
If you are a better player then you are. Speaking as a Thunder fan who hates how he left. He’s better
This thread is about Kds legacy in the all-time ranking, not how talented Kd is... Kd will finish higher in the all-time ranking than Steph
KD by age 25 was 3x runner up to LeBron in MVP voting and had won his 1st MVP. Steph by age 25 made his first allstar appearance. Durant is definitely better than Curry all-time for me. Theyve both been elite for the last 7 or so years but theyve
Neither are top 10 all time yet. But I dont see KD ever usurping Curry in legacy talks.
KD’s the better player. Curry’s got the better legacy though - he quite literally changed the way the game is played today. That’s not something a lot of folks can claim.
Harden is better than both them because why not!
