    both former MVP's, both multiple time all-stars, both olympians.. probably the best little guys of the last 25 years to bring flash and excitement to the NBA

    so who are you taking, "the answer" or "chef curry"

    Curry. Although I think Harden is the MVP, there is no denying Curry is the best shooter off the dribble in the history of the NBA.

    Iverson's game really has no place in today's NBA. Inefficient volume shooters are a thing of the past. No new superstars will be of that mold anymore. The league has gotten too smart.

    Iverson in his prime by a long shot.

    Curry is damn good, but I'll still take Iverson in his prime. Granted Curry in his prime could surpass him. Iverson played with some scrubs. Imagine him on this GS team.

    I despise the media obsession with Curry, but it's really not close. He's far better than Iverson.

    did you give him that nickname?

    He's known as Baby Assassin. Always been. Always will be.

    I don't think they are very alike at all

    Iverson was pretty much a mini Kobe, volume shooter that hard carries his teaam

    Curry is like a really efficient offensive player that is extremely team oriented because he only takes what the defense gives him.

    I don't know how much of an impact Curry would have if he is made the main focal point of the offense like Harden

    currys %'s would go down if his usage went up. iverson also played on teams where had to do more for them to win. and was also more athletic. and he didnt have to practice to do it.

    Curry, not taking anything away from Iverson.

    But if I wanna win a championship I would rather build my team around Curry.

    Iversons teams were built like that becuase he'd run other shooters out of town and needed defenders to cover him.

    He ran Stackhouse out of town, it's not really Philly not putting a team around him, it's them putting the team he wanted around him.

    Also definitely curry. I'll take an efficient team pg over a volume shooter any day. Not hard to find people willing to shoot in the nba.

    This laughable, Iverson would destroy Curry.

    He detroyed Kobe, prime Vince Carter, prime Sam Cassell, prime Ray Allen, and prime Glen 'Big Dog' Robinson at the same time.

    Oh yeah, made Jordan look foolish as well, curry is good but this is the new soft NBA, Iverson would've run rough shod over this weak league.
