Steph Curry’s impact on the NBA will not soon be forgotten.
His ability to shoot from deep, along with his clutch gene in the playoffs, has propelled Curry and the Golden State Warriors to great success.
Curry entered the league in 2009 and was able to play against Kobe Bryant for several years.
A recent Bleacher Report tweet captured a quote from Curry detailing how Bryant knew he would be a star.
Kobe “recognized the killer instinct behind the smile,” Curry said.
Kobe knew Steph had that Mamba Mentality 🐍

Bleacher Report also shared a video of Curry, which shows him hitting a deep three-pointer over Bryant.
Boy, was Bryant right.
Curry’s career thus far has been filled with four championship rings, two league MVP awards, and he is a nine-time All-Star.
He has also been selected to the NBA’s first-team on four occasions, leading the league in scoring on two separate occasions.
Curry’s impact on the sport has been nothing short of spectacular.
The three-point shot has never been a more vital part of the game, which is a big thanks to Curry.
Shooting from anywhere on the court isn’t just Curry’s calling card anymore, as more and more players have picked up this shot.
Will Curry be a first-ballot Hall of Famer when he retires from the league?
With him on the court, the Warriors seem to have a chance to contend for the title.
The Warriors have made a few additions during the offseason, with the most significant being Chris Paul.
With any luck, the team will put everything together, giving Curry his fifth title.NEXT: Stephen Curry Picks Which NBA Legend He'd Give One Of His Rings
