“I think the beautiful thing about Steph Curry right now is that he is the ultimate perspective when it comes to shooting. Anybody would think for maybe one second that maybe I’m having a pretty good shooting season. And then you just see the statistics that this guy is putting up on a consistent basis. It’s otherworldly. I think the last five games he’s averaging over nine threes made per game…”

Robinson added that Curry has been on another level in recent weeks. In fact, he has even gone past his incredible 2016 unanimous MVP season. While the Golden State Warriors are not as good this year, Robinson believes that Curry deserves to be in the MVP conversation.

“It’s sickening, I think it’s an absolute joke. You look at the numbers, and he has surpassed at this point his unanimous MVP season. Obviously that year they were the best team in the NBA, and this year they’re battling to get a play-in spot. But I don’t care, it’s incredible what he’s done, he needs to be in this MVP conversation. Because when you watch him play basketball, he’s one of the few players – you watch him play, it is very clear that nobody in the NBA can do what he’s doing.”
