Manu set up Curry on curl screens and drive/kick threes. They fit together. Manu is also a much better overall player than Klay. With Curry/Paul its close but Manu/Klay its clear Manu is better.

Klay is only better at staying healthy than Manu but not actually playing basketball. Curry doesn't get injured in big moments like Paul, so the health part of things cancel out anyway.

Curry and Manu, much more verastile offensive duo. It's important to note that the second duo has clear edge on defense and health, but it's not enough to overcome actual difference in levels. Ginobili in his prime was clearly better player than Thompson.

Yeah i’m with others, it’s Steph/Manu by a good bit. Are you sure that you didn’t make this thread clyde knowing it was titled in Curry’s favor? :wink:

Voted for the first duo due to Curry's superior offensive impact.
Not sure about all the Manu hype tho, I'd put him on the same tier with Klay as far as peak goes.
