There is no doubt that Steph Curry is one of the best players in the NBA. His skills on the court have led the Golden State Warriors to four championships in the last eight years. But what makes Steph so great? Many people argue that it is his impeccable shooting ability and the incredible space he creates for his teammates. However, one Western Conference executive believes that Steph's greatness goes beyond basketball.

Selfless superstar

ESPN recently polled numerous coaches, scouts, and executives about who the best player in the NBA is right now. While Milwaukee Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo received the most votes with 11, Steph still received plenty of support with three. One Western Conference executive explained why he believes Steph is the best player in the league:

"They just won the title. It's a results-driven league, and he's provided the results," a Western Conference executive said of the "Baby-Faced Assassin." "Not only is he an elite generational talent, but he's the kind of guy you want in your locker room. He is the culture."

While Draymond Green may get all the attention for his fiery personality, it is Curry who sets the tone for the Warriors. His unselfishness on and off the court has made him a beloved teammate and allowed Golden State to build one of the most successful dynasties in the history of the NBA.

As former NBA Finals MVP Chauncey Billups once said, "Steph is an NBA superstar without an ego. He is the reason why they're so great. It is because he empowers everybody to just be who they are and it's all fueled by Steph Curry."

Having Steph equals a lot of victories

An Eastern Conference scout had a more succinct explanation as to why Steph ranks up there amongst the league's giants:

"He wins," said the NBA scout.

Steph's track record concretely backs this up. In addition to his four championships, he is a two-time NBA MVP and recently added a Finals MVP to his trophy case. He has also racked up a 548-281 win-loss record over the span of his 13-year career. And before we forget, Curry is also the all-time leader in three-pointers made with 3,117 and counting.

There is no denying that Steph Curry is one of the best players in the NBA. His incredible shooting ability, unselfishness, and winning track record have made him a superstar both on and off the court. It is clear that he has had a profound impact on the Warriors organization and the league as a whole. 

Thanks to Steph, the Warriors are one of the most successful dynasties in NBA history. There is no doubt that he will continue to be a force to be reckoned with for years to come.
