Stephen Curry is the best shooter of all-time.
He's also 32. Eventually, someone will surpass the Warriors superstar as the NBA's best current shooter.
The context tells a more-complete story, Shaq and co-host John Kincade pressing Young into a meaningless statement:
Young doesn't lack confidence when asked even neutral questions. By the time Shaq and Kincade applied their pressure, Young's response became meaningless. Young clearly didn't want to say something so bold.
For good reason.
Young shot 36.1 percent on 9.5 3-pointers per game this season, both career highs.
Curry hasn't take so few 3-pointers per game in five seasons. Aside from his five-game season this year, Curry has never shot below 41.1 percent from beyond hte arc.
Eleven years younger than Curry, Young will probably surpass Curry as a shooter at some point. That could be when Curry enters the twilight of his career with Young in his prime. It might not be until Curry retires. But it'll probably happen.
It also probably won't happen soon, as even Young seems to know.
