Corey Maggette told NBC Sports, “He took a page out of Ray Allen’s playbook, he took a page out of Reggie Miller’s playbook and then he established his own playbook, and that’s where I feel like he’s not just the greatest shooter. This guy can be considered among the top-five greatest players of all time because of the way he’s changed the game. You have to be a trend-setter in the league. Steph Curry is a trend-setter.”

Curry is undoubtedly the greatest shooter in the league, Maggette believes that Stephen Curry should be considered among the greatest players and not just shooters.

Maggette further added, “He’s not just a 3-point shooter. The thing about it that separates Steph Curry from everyone else is that not only does he shoot the ball, but he shoots the ball when there’s a defender in his face.
