For the last few days, the NBA world has been talking about Steph Curry’s place in the history of the league.
Curry himself recently said that he is the best point guard of all time and many people agreed with him.
His personal trainer, Brandon Payne, spoke to Sportskeeda about Curry and his abilities.
He said that he is “possibly the most skilled basketball player that has ever played.”
According to Payne:
“He has the combination with his skill level, his decision-making ability and his level of conditioning. As his career has gone on, he has had increasing level of strength. You have a player that is great at all of those things.”

Payne is completely correct when he says that Curry is a stunning combination of skill, decision-making, and conditioning.
Obviously, few people have the shooting skills that Curry has.
There is a reason that he’s called one of the greatest shooters of all time and has earned the most three-pointers in NBA history.
Meanwhile, he is a talented floor general too.
He has the ability to find his teammates from just about anywhere on the floor and also makes smart, split-second decisions when it comes to passing and making plays.
Of course, his conditioning is impressive too.
At 35 years old, Curry is still moving with ease and speed and has only experienced a handful of injuries throughout his career.
Payne added that Curry has gained strength over the years and there is truth to that too.
When he first entered the league in 2009, some analysts said he was too weak, too skinny, and too small.
While he is still slight compared to some NBA superstars, Curry has definitely gotten stronger and more physically competitive over the years too.
Payne is a basketball expert who has worked closely with Curry for years so he has the knowledge and the authority to call him one of the best ever.NEXT: Stephen Curry Breaks Down Chris Paul's Potential Impact On The Warriors
