The GOAT debate in the NBA has taken a backseat to another heated debate recently, with everyone talking about which player is the best point guard in league history.
Over the past three decades or so, this is not been much of a debate, with the answer almost always being Los Angeles Lakers legend Magic Johnson, who has an incredibly impressive resume which few have been able to compare to.
With superstar Stephen Curry of the Golden State Warriors recently winning his fourth NBA title, the debate has started to get a bit interesting, especially after the two-time NBA MVP said that he thinks he’s the best point guard to ever play the game.
Over the last month or so, a lot of people have started to chime in on the debate over who’s the best point guard in league history, with ESPN’s Kendrick Perkins being the latest, as he believes Curry is currently sitting atop the list, via NBA on ESPN.

Although Isiah Thomas, John Stockton, and Russell Westbrook had great careers in the league, it is a two-man race for the distinction of the best point guard the NBA has ever seen.
The resumes for Curry and Johnson speak for themselves, as they have both been incredibly successful and worthy of being in this debate.
It seems as though it comes down to legacy, with the debate really being able to see which of these two legends has had more of an impact on the game, as they arguably both changed how the game is played once their careers started to take off.NEXT: Giannis Antetokounmpo Details His Serious Offseason Workouts
