But his teammate, Andre Iguodala, believes he's the second-best point guard ever.
"I think he's the second-best ever," he said, per Marcus Thompson II of The Athletic. "I always thought that about him. I knew, but other people didn't know."
Iguodala didn't name which point guard he felt was the best ever.
There's certainly a case to be made for Curry. He's a two-time MVP, three-time NBA champion, six-time All-Star and two-time first-team All-NBA selection, and he will soon play in his fifth consecutive NBA Finals. He's the greatest shooter in NBA history and has five of the top-10 seasons in three-pointers, including the record (402 in 2015-16).
Curry and the Warriors also changed the game, ushering in the three-point revolution and pace-and-space philosophy.

Magic Johnson is the front-runner when it comes to the debate about the best point guards in history. All he did was win five titles and three MVPs and get voted into 12 All-Star Games. Few point guards in any era can match his size, versatility or playmaking ability.
Oscar Robertson was pretty amazing, too, averaging a triple-double in the 1961-62 season. He was a 12-time All-Star and won both a title and MVP Award.
Other players deserving shoutouts include John Stockton and Isiah Thomas. But there's little doubt Curry is in the top five, and there's a case to be made he belongs in one of the top two spots.
Of course, deciding who deserves to be considered among the best of the best in NBA history is a fun argument—and one people really love having:
Curry added to his legend Monday night, scoring 37 points (7-of-16 from three) while adding 13 rebounds and 11 assists. A triple-double to help sweep the Portland Trail Blazers and advance to the NBA Finals, with Kevin Durant out injured, was quite the performance.
For those who doubt Curry, it was a reminder of just how great he is.
"People just need something to talk about," Quinn Cook said, per Thompson. "The fact that you question a two-time MVP, a three-time champion, a generational talent, it's mind-boggling. He just stays humble. He's a superstar, a megastar, and he doesn't let anything faze him. Great teammate. Great leader."
Second-best point guard of all time, though? One of the best players in history, period?
Let the debate continue.
