NBA Champion, reigning NBA MVP, and current phenom Stephen Curry was asked in an interview recently if he thinks he’s the best basketball player in the world right now. He said yes.

From TIME:

Are you the best player in the world right now?

 

In my mind, yes. That’s how I have confidence out there that I can play at a high level every night. I don’t get into debates, arguing with people about why I am versus somebody else. I feel like anybody who’s at the level I’m trying to be at, if you don’t think that when you’re on the floor, then you’re doing yourself a disservice.

Steph also talked about being the face of the NBA, a role he is happy to embrace.

Your teammate Draymond Green calls you “the face of the NBA.” Do you agree?

 

I embrace that. I don’t know if that’s a black and white answer. You’ve got to be a winner, and have all the right trajectory as a player and as a team to back that up. Whatever comes out of that is cool. The way I try to represent my family and coaches, I think all are characteristics the league aspires to portray. That’s just who I am. It’s not changing anything about me to fulfill that role.
