Stephen Curry of the Golden State Warriors and Chris Paul of the Phoenix Suns are two of the best players alive.
Curry has four championship rings and is the best three-point shooter in league history.
While Paul hasn’t won the Finals, he is still considered one of the greatest point guards ever and consistently leads his team and the league in assists.
Chris Paul currently has a higher Hall of Fame probability than Steph Curry 😳

Both of these guys are historic players but one has a slightly better chance of making the Hall of Fame.
As pointed out by Real NBA Quotez on Twitter, Paul currently has a 100% chance of making the NBA Hall of Fame, according to Basketball Reference.
Meanwhile, Curry is just behind him with 99.9%.
Fans of the Warriors are livid by this statistic and feel that Curry should have a 100% chance of making the Hall.
The truth is that he should.
The other truth is that Curry will most definitely be in the Hall of Fame but the debate will always rage about who is better: him or Paul?
Some people point to all of the hardware that Curry has won over the years and say that proves he’s a better player than Paul.
He is definitely a more decorated NBA star but one could argue that Paul is better in other ways.
For example, analysis of all his teams shows that Paul lifts up the other guys he plays with and regularly makes his crew prepared for the playoffs.
At the end of the day, most people will compare the two based on how many Finals they have won and Curry is head-and-shoulders above Paul in that respect.
It’s very unlikely that Paul will catch up with Curry’s number of rings, especially since he is nearing retirement.
But both of these guys will have a place in the Hall of Fame waiting for them.NEXT: Should The Warriors Have Made A Push For Kevin Durant?
