Steph Curry selects Ray Allen over Reggie Miller for hypothetical 3-pointer
MANILA, Philippines – While in Manila for his Under Armour Road Tour, reigning NBA MVP and Golden State Warriors superstar Steph Curry was made to answer a difficult question.
After being placed in a hypothetical situation where he was teammates with two NBA legends in Ray Allen and Reggie Miller, Curry was asked whom he would pass the ball to for a 3-point attempt if he was covered by a triple team.
“If there were 3 guys on you and you could not take the 3, who would you pass it to?” the 26-year-old NBA champion was asked, to which he first responded:
“I can’t shoot it?”
“Reggie Miller was my favorite player growing up,” Curry said, “but Ray is the all-time leading 3-point [maker] in the NBA, so I’ll go with him.”
Curry did note that you can’t go wrong with either one.
“You can’t really make a bad decision right. I feel like either I shoot it or I pass it to either one of them, we’re going to win the game. That’s my best answer for that one,” he said.
Allen has made 2,973 3-pointers in his career, per basketball-reference.com, which is most in NBA history. Miller is second with 2,560. Curry is already at number 50 in that list with 1,191 made shots from downtown.
As Curry’s career continues to progress, he’s expected to overtake both Allen and Miller. – Rappler.com
