Basketball fans finally got to hear Steph Curry‘s thoughts on being excluded from Michael Jordan‘s dream pick-up basketball team. The ordeal started when Jordan was asked on NBC’s Today if he would be keeping his past “dream” roster that he made up in 2013; a team that consisted of Magic Johnson, Scottie Pippen, Hakeem Olajuwon, and James Worthy.

When asked if any of the current NBA stars would make the list today, Jordan responded with the same names, saying that although Steph Curry is a “great player,” he is “not a Hall of Famer yet.” In an upcoming interview with Sole Collector, Curry responded with “I know I have more to prove to myself. When you hear a guy [Michael Jordan] like that who’s the greatest of all time, it’s kind of funny. Since we’ve been on this stage, we’ve heard a lot of retired guys chiming in on this generation of basketball player and evaluating talent and saying their generation was better and all that. It’s a great conversation for the fans to get in on. I know I’m in good shape for that, but I still have a lot to prove to myself.”

Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr also chimed in on the situation with words justifying his past teammate’s words. “I think Michael has his own version of the Hall of Fame. It’s in his own head — so whatever that is, that’s what it is.”

While it would seem like Jordan was taking a dig at Curry, many are pointing out that MJ would have been fined based on the league’s anti-tempering rule where those directly involved with the organization (owners/coaches) cannot comment on the current state of the NBA. This rule was recently exercised when Doc Rivers compared Kawhi Leonard to His Airness; the comment landed the Clippers with a $50,000 USD fine.
