You're the one arguing that Curry is transcendent. I just showed you what transcendent looks like. You want to argue Curry is the 20th-30th best player of all time and is just elite, then your argument will be a lot more reasonable.
If you want to keep going down the list of best all time players I bet I get pretty far before I find a player with a worse resume in their first five years than Stephen Curry, and that's a FACT.
no special pleading, I'm letting you how ridiculous it is to base your argument an all-star game appearances, and that despite not getting an all-star nod, he was still beasting and deserved one of the national media at the time was paying attention. it's pretty straight forward.
and Curry is transcendent, that's pretty indisputable by any bar of measure, only unanimous MVP ever, only 1 of 9 players ever to win multiple MVPs and multiple rings, the GOAT shooter, will go down as a top 15-20 player of all time...that doesn't mean he's as good as LeBron and Jordan.
i'll ask you a 3rd time...which season specifically should have done more? that's 3 times you've failed to answer...if you don't answer in your next post I'm going to assume you have nothing.
That's literally the definition of special pleading. You've been doing it this whole time.
It's outcome based. It doesn't matter what excuse you want to drone on about. He didn't have good enough team success to win multiple playoff rounds and he didn't have good enough individual success to garner awards in those years.
You're the kind of guy who after Curry retires you'll never knock him for a lack of counting stats because, 'he was injured so many years.'
you said he only made 1 all-star appearance, I'm telling you it's irrelevant given he was obviously an all-star caliber player earlier than he got recognition for it...if your entire argument is based of baseless media driven awards have it, but no one is gonna take it seriously.
and thanks again for not answering the question, it's pretty obvious now that you had nothing to begin with (other than, lol, all star appearances).
