Warriors’ Steph Curry Explains Why Comparisons to Iowa’s Caitlin Clark Are Unfair

Iowa‘s Caitlin Clark has often drawn comparisons to Golden State Warriors superstar Stephen Curry, both for her ability to score points in bunches, and for her seemingly limitless range from beyond the arc

It’s not difficult to see the parallels between the two stars. 

But Curry said he believes such comparisons are unfair to Clark and underestimate her diverse skill set during an interview with with CBS Mornings on Tuesday. 

Curry told Jericka Duncan of CBS News that the comparison overshadows the Iowa star’s “overall floor game.” 

“I think it almost robs her of, like, the rest of her game, because she’s such a good floor, you know, she has her overall, you know, floor game, she’s racking up, you know, close to triple-doubles every night. And, like, her shooting ability is, you know, it’s her superpower, but the rest of her game is as polished as that, and so this is must-see TV,” Curry said.

Curry has a point, as Clark, who is the nation’s leading scorer at 31.9 points per game, ranks second all-time among women’s Division I players in career triple doubles, with 17. 

Kudos to the Warriors star for giving Clark, who is likely to be the first pick in the 2024 WNBA draft, some well-deserved kudos.
