While talking with Colin Cowherd on his radio show last year (week), Larry Bird commented on former Warrior’s coach Mark Jackson’s comments about how Steph Curry has “hurt” the game of basketball.
“I think he loves Steph Curry,” Bird said. “But if you walk in any gym, if there are kids in there, they’re all shooting 3-pointers. That’s the way it was when I walked in gyms years ago. I don’t see anything wrong with it.
“I just think Steph Curry is probably right now our best player and what a champion. He (Jackson) said ‘what a champion.’ That team out there is a real champion. Because if you win a championship and then come out and go 28-1, that’s pretty special.”
