Michael Jordan says Stephen Curry not a Hall of Famer

Michael Jordan doesn't think Stephen Curry is a Hall of Famer.

While speaking to Craig Melvin on "Today," Jordan was asked if he would amend the list of players he said would be unbeatable in a pickup game back in 2013. Jordan said he wouldn't, sticking with Hakeem Olajuwon, Magic Johnson, Scottie Pippen and James Worthy on the list.

"So, Steph Curry shouldn't be offended when he watches this," Melvin asked.

"I hope not. He's still a great player. Not a Hall of Famer yet though," Jordan said. "He's not."

Curry has career averages of 23.5 points, 6.6 assists and 4.5 rebounds per game and is a two-time MVP and three-time NBA champion. He has shot 47.7% from the field, 43.6% from beyond the arc and 90.5% from the free-throw line.

Jordan finished his 15-year NBA career with six championships, six Finals MVP awards, five league MVPs and 14 All-Star appearances.

Curry and the Warriors tip-off the 2019 season on Thursday against the Clippers at 10:30 p.m. ET.
