Phil Jackson Tweets Stephen Curry Reminds Him of Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf

by February 28, 2016

Stephen Curry‘s heroics last night elicited praise from around the League. This morning, Knicks president and NBA coaching legend Phil Jackson tweeted his thoughts on Curry:

Uh, what? All due respect to Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf (born Chris Jackson) who was in his own right an outstanding college player at LSU and enjoyed a respectable NBA career, but his moments as a star at the highest level were brief. Abdul-Rauf was a dead-eye shooter who led the League in free throw shooting a few seasons and had one or two memorable performances as a member of the Denver Nuggets (30 and 20 against Phoenix, 51 points vs. Utah).

But let’s be serious: he ain’t Steph Curry.
