Timberwolves forward Kevin Garnett is among the dwindling group of active players that were around during Michael Jordan’s heyday.
Jordan’s dominance is a subject Garnett knows well. The fifth-overall pick of the 1995 draft witnessed it first-hand.
And now in his 21st NBA season, Garnett said he’s witnessing another streak of dominance.
Following last night’s loss to the Warriors, Garnett compared Steph Curry to the Bulls legend.
“Like Michael Jordan was a whole other thing, this guy is his own thing,” Garnett said, via ESPN. “It’s beautiful for basketball.”
Curry scored 46 in a 129-116 win, and leads the league with 31.9 points per game.
Wait, what?? Curry bobbles it on the release, and still gets it to go! Beyond locked in on TNT #NBARapidReplay https://t.co/sAZNXA2oHO — NBA (@NBA) November 13, 2015
He has the Warriors off to a 10-0 start, making them the first defending champions to start 10-0 since the 1996-97 Bulls.
Even more astonishingly, Curry is on pace to make 401 3-pointers this season. The current single-season record is 286, set by Curry last year.
The Bulls will get their first look at the defending champs when they face Curry and company in Oakland on Nov. 20.
