Stephen Curry has been hot all season long so far. The former two time MVP has led the Golden State Warriors to one of the best records in the league. Moreover, he even made history while doing so. However, it seems he even has the eyes of the reigning MVP, Nikola Jokic, on him. Recently, the Joker said Curry is the most impressive player in his eyes.

The Warriors are making a resounding statement this year. Just like Curry warned everyone, they are coming after every team and have done a near-perfect job so far. The main reason for their success is Steph playing at an MVP caliber. The three point king has come out with a purpose this season, and he is attracting many more fans.

Joker reveals Stephen Curry as his most impressive player

Curry’s style of play attracts a lot of eyes towards him. His shooting prowess separates him from any player in the league. Some of the shots that seem impossible to make turn out to be his bread and butter. That’s the reason even Jokic is in awe of the superstar. The Joker had some huge praise for Steph.

Jokic said: “If you don’t like watching him play, you probably don’t like watching basketball as a sport altogether. He plays in such a lucid way I sometimes catch myself thinking, ‘Look at what this guy is doing’, but my god his shots just keep falling. He pulls up from such distances I feel like my shots wouldn’t even reach from that far away.”

The Joker is right on the money with his take. Curry has shown off his range on more than one occasion and Jokic is an absolute fan. However, when it comes to competition, the Jokic is not far behind Curry. The Joker is not letting that MVP crown slip away that easily as he continues to dominate the game.

While Curry is on a better team, Jokic is putting up the better numbers. Curry is averaging 27.7 points, 5 rebounds and 6 assists on 43% shooting. On the other hand, Jokic is putting up 25 points, 13.9 rebounds, 7 assists while shooting 56% from the field. It is a neck and neck competition so far with the MVP race heating up with each game.
