Andre Iguodala had high praise for Stephen Curry after the Warriors’ 120-117 victory over the 76ers on Saturday.
Curry is arguably the best shooter of all time, and Iguodala went on to call him “the second-best point guard ever.”

“It’s interesting because I think he’s still underrated,” Iguodala said. “I still think he doesn’t really get the respect he deserves, and guys think that, you know, he uses a lot of screens. Guys think that you can draw mismatches with him defensively, but he’s a real problem.
“He won’t ever get it (respect). It is what it is sometimes. But when you sit down and have serious conversations, that’s when you know, he’s the second-best point guard ever.”
When Iguodala was asked who could top Curry, he responded “Magic,” in reference to former Lakers star Magic Johnson, who is currently the president of basketball operations for Los Angeles.
