Stephen Curry calls out Michael Jordan for being a ‘hater’ .
While the opinion of arguably the greatest NBA player of all time is certainly noteworthy, most people disagree with Jordan. Curry has already won three championships, made six All-Star teams and been named league MVP twice. He’s also the greatest shooter in basketball history and has revolutionized the way the game is played. He would not have to play another minute to earn a spot in the Hall of Fame.Of course, Jordan has a history of trying to knock great players down a peg.
