Steph Curry has had an incredible season and could be set to top it all of with a ring as his side takes on the Cleveland Cavaliers in the NBA Finals.

Curry has been forcing his way into contention as one of the best players in the entire NBA thanks to his lethal, record breaking, scoring ability.

Because of the Golden State Warriors stars incredible season, talk has escalated about the three point specialist potentially being the best scorer in NBA history.

Is Curry the Best?

The 2014 MVP Kevin Durant has been one of those calling Curry the greatest pure shooter of all all time, but there is one Indiana Pacers player who really doesn't agree with that.

GiveMeSport spoke exclusively with Damjan Rudez, the Pacers' small forward who has enjoyed a very good start to his career in North America, and the Croatian hit the brakes on the Curry hype train.

"I would say that he is headed that way, but I cannot say that he is the best shooter in NBA History," Rudez told us last week.

"He’s broken a lot of records, and he still has a lot of career in front of him but I think that you can only judge that once his career his done," the Croat went on to add.

Rudez wasn't criticising the point guard in any way, and his assertion that we should all wait before bowing down at the altar of Curry is a smart one, especially in the reactionary world of modern day sports.

The Rightful MVP

The 28-year old went on to praise his counterpart later in the conversation, saying that he truly believed that Curry was by far and away the worthy winner of the MVP ahead of the likes of James Harden and Anthony Davis.

"Yes, definitely. I feel the MVP should go to the best player on the best team and it was very simple," Rudez said. Even though Harden had a great season, it went to the right man."

Rudez spoke to us from Gran Canaria, where he was part of the NBA's Basketball Without Borders initiative, serving as NBA ambassadors to European youth in what was the 15th year of Basketball Without Borders.

Some of the league's premier players attended the BWB camp when they were kids, including Joel Embiid, Marc Gasol, Marco Belinelli and Nikola Mirotic.
