ESPN's Perkins praised the renowned All-Star.

He continued:

“He has opened doors for guys like Trae Young to come into the NBA."

He concluded:

"Do you realize, Max [Kellerman], that when you go to an AAU tournament..." Perkins went on to add Curry's impact to the youth, "you're watching guys pull up from three because they feel like they're Steph Curry?”

It's safe to assume that Curry's legacy in the NBA is secure. With his fourth championship win back in June, he has proven to everyone that he doesn't need another All-Star to win titles. In fact, it's the other way around. There are certain players that need Curry to win the chip.

As a two-time season MVP, Finals MVP, first Western Conference MVP winner and four-time champion, Stephen Curry seems to have no problem adding more trophies to his collection. Even with all the hardware he's collected, he's remained humble and supportive of the people around him, especially his teammates.

Golden State's Golden Boy has solidified his career as the best shooter to ever play. Additionally, his relationship with his teammates, the coaching staff and the front office hasn't gone unnoticed. He has been able to stay grounded even at the height of his success. The eight-time All-Star has become a beloved superstar because of this.

When forward Andre Iguodala won the 2015 Finals MVP, we all saw how Curry reacted to it. Unlike most stars, the 6'2 sharpshooter showed his enthusiasm when NBA Commissioner Adam Silver handed the MVP trophy to Iggy. That's what separates him from other All-Time greats. Not to name names anyone, but if it had been a different star, there could've been a rift between them.
