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

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.
