Basketball Hall of Famer Dave Bing has a pretty strong opinion: Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry is the best shooter in NBA history. “He is absolutely the best shooter that has played the game,” said Bing, who was named one of the Top 50 NBA players of all time. “Nobody’s close, except his teammate.” Curry’s teammate, of course, is Klay Thompson. But Bing gave Curry the nod over Thompson because of everything else he does.

“Curry, he has the ability to get free. I mean, he’s a great ball handler,” Bing said. “He can play one-on-one and he gets free because he handles the ball so well. Klay Thompson doesn’t handle the ball like that, but he’s probably got equal depth. He’s got the range also, but he can’t get free like Curry. Curry can get free on his own and he makes the rest of his teammates, he makes them better.”
