Before the three-point revolution began in the NBA, the Golden State Warriors were one of the worst teams in the league, with little to no hope of turning things around.
However, the team was able to bring in some talented young players to help shape the future of the franchise by drafting Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, and Draymond Green.
All three of these players turned out to be legitimate stars in this league, with Curry becoming a superstar and defining an era with his style of play, arguably changing the way the game of basketball played in the modern NBA.
At 35, Curry is playing for his legacy, with four championship rings to his credit, matching LeBron James of the Los Angeles Lakers, and potentially a few more years left in his prime to add to that total.
With Curry on a mission to win as many rings as he can before he calls it a career, the Warriors superstar made some noise with a recent picture from Kevin Allen of him wearing all four of his championship rings via NBA Central.

If Curry ended his playing career tomorrow, the Warriors legend would be a Hall of Famer when officially eligible and would go down as one of the best guards and shooters in league history.
At this point, he’s already convinced many people that he’s the best shooter in NBA history, but he’s still got some more work to do for his legacy to be in the same category as Kobe Bryant, Magic Johnson, and Michael Jordan.NEXT: Stephen Curry Makes Strong Statement On Load Management
