Comparing two sports is always difficult but right now Steph Curry is blitzing the NBA to such an extent that there is only one man to liken with the Golden State Warriors star.
Ultimately, Curry has run out of current players in the NBA to match up with, and all that is left is Barcelona superstar Leo Messi.
On Saturday night, Curry went off the charts in NBA terms, by winning the match for Golden State against Oklahoma City in the final seconds of overtime with a three-pointer that was just ridiculous.
The victory meant Golden State have already made the play-offs with six weeks to spare and Curry shattered a number of records in an enthralling encounter versus Oklahoma.
As a result, there have been plenty of comparisons between Messi and Curry. With both sportsmen perceived to be humble individuals, who are simply too good for those around them.
