Baylor was great throughout his career but his athleticism was off the charts before his knee injury when he was explosive going to the hoop. Elgin was one of the best improv players of all-time and had more moves than U-Haul.

there are people who said that "curry isnt a 2nd pg of all time bc all he can do is shoot" lmao lemme explain when people compared curry to kyrie they always say kyrie has better handles yup kyrie has better handle than curry but not by far coz curry has a better handles too we all know that, they said if you're a pg you need a passing skills (magic johnson) curry has a passing skills too if you wactched curry's youll see his passing skills no look pass etc. (like magic but magic did it better, bc thats magic's skills) curry can rebound too just like magic johnson, curry can block, curry can steals also, curry can finish inside on the paint too. the difference is CURRY IS A GREATER SHOOTER THAN THEM magic (passing skills) curry (shooting skills)

We can give props to Steph all day but who really deserves props is one of the ALL-Time SF's in History. Elgin Baylor. I watched games and highlights of this man even though I'm only 20 years old. This man was one of the most tenacious and pure hearted players of his time. He was Michael Jordan before Michael, Kobe before Kobe and LeBron before Lebron.

Too bad Elgin didn’t play on a championship team. However, he did retire the year the Lakers won in 72.

What idiot don't respect Elgin Baylor(the first "Big E")? You don't have to tell me to respect EB. By us "old timers"...he is much respected.

As a legend its good he respects Steph, but as a legend he's also supposed to get his proper respect. B Scott tried to make it plain at the beginning of the segment (watch other clip) and Brian followed suit. White girl(Rachel Nichols?) pissed me TF off repeatedly calling him Elgin. He is MR BAYLOR to you, give a f*** how starstruck you are bytch put sum Respeck on tht man's name. Period. #LakerGang #MrBaylor #RespectYourElders #BowDown #GetItRightWhitePpl

Tim Duncan was the Big Fundamentals and Curry is the Little Fundamentals!!


jeyton . 8 months ago

Athletic players hate Steph because he is an average man, who has not seen even a picture of a PED, destroying them with talent and high IQ. Also he represents the new type of leader. The unselfish servant leader. A leader that makes everybody else better. Even companies finally are realising that this is the type of leadership they need for long term success.

People tend to hit on Curry because of his size. Well I he's greatest to be able to dominate and impact the game at his size.

Did Rachel just say at the end: "Please respect this man"? He is a legend and everyone respects him. I think her brain wires were trying to say something and that came out

He spent 3 secs (out of courtesy) talking about LeBJ... and the next 60 secs talking about Curry.

Baylor and West carried those early 60s Lakers teams both would go off with 40 point games, West is the All Time leader in playoff 40 point games and Baylor 61 in the finals

Its odd that a fat, unathletic and looks like he doesnt know how to play any sport became a basketball analyst, disputing the opinions and personal experiences of basketball guys like NBA players and coaches in their segments.

She tried so hard to fake a laugh when he said.. ... Stephen Curry . Notice that when he first said... LEBRON. She said....there you go I . But when he said...Curry she felt like.... Grrrrr . Cause it's not news that she hate the warriors. all her videos are praising LEBRON and her mood changes when she talks about golden state. SMFH

Elgin Baylor had a 61 point 22 rebound game in the NBA Finals. Top 10 all time. Perhaps, the most underrated superstar of all time

Of course they have to be champions to make their mark. Or maybe if you all want, let's just remove the scores and just make sure everybody is enjoying themselves. After the game ends everybody gets a little trophy.

The only old head who’s not low key bitter that Curry has changed the game they used to play lol just recognizes that he’s different and great at being his different self. No team is practicing their dunks to be like other teams but other teams def practicing their threes year after year BECAUSE of Steph and having to play against him. If you can’t give props for that you’re just a hater

Abel Magno

Abel Magno . 10 months ago

I like both players Lebron and Steph... i see Steph in skills similar or equally gifted as lebron minus the physical gifts... if curry had the same body type and hight as lebron i think steph would be Lebron 2.0...
