Luka surpassing Steph. No disrespect to Steph, but he has zero chance of passing Jordan. Luka has an entire career left so it's a possibility that he passes Steph. For that reason, the answer is clear to me.

Luka is only at the start of his career but so far he's on a potential GOAT trajectory. It's way too soon to say how his career will play out after only 2 seasons but it's a definite possibility he'll be greater than Curry.

Steph catching MJ is near impossible at this point.

Of course Doncic surpassing Steph is likelier. Still, it is not some foregone conclusion. Curry has what some would argue as a top 15-20 peak. And the heights he reached especially on offense again is something Doncic may never reach.

MJ? You went too far. I would say it's likelier than Luka surpasses Steph than Steph surpasses Magic or Bird. I can see Steph passing Kobe.

Usually don't say this but yeah 0% chance Steph is surpassing MJ let alone coming close to him. Better odds that Luka surpasses Curry but I don't know how probable that is.

Luka passing Steph might not even be a hyperbole, he has the talent to be an all-time great, even top 10 potential. But that's still way to early to tell because of his age and how his career is going to play out.

There's zero chance Steph surpasses MJ. Or as close to zero as you can get.

I'd say roughly 40% chance that Luka surpasses Steph one day. Less than 1% chance that Steph surpasses MJ.

Steph's 32. He's well past his peak, coming off an injury and he's what, maybe a borderline top 10 player at best? It would take an unprecedented miracle for him to surpass Jordan. Much better chance that Luka surpasses Jordan than Steph. Like maybe 2% Luka passes Jordan and .001% Steph passes Jordan.

This is a new low even for the OP with his Steph bias.

Curry has an argument for a top 5 peak, but I would never say never to Doncic after seeing his second season at age 21.

It is more probable than you think. Luka in his 2nd season is almost as good as Curry in his 6th and still has a bunch of stuff he can improve on with his game.

Wow, i know you’re a Curry fan but he’s simply not in Jordan’s class the chances of him passing Jordan is going to be 0 on pretty much anyone’s list.

Curry was not good enough to have a max contract after his 3rd season...

Seriously, Doncic has a better chance to pass Jordan than Curry does.
