Despite entering the NBA in 2009, it wasn't until the 2012-2013 season that Curry saw his first post-season. In 2015, Stephen Curry won his first NBA Championship after opening the season eighth (+2800) in odds to win the title. In the season prior, the Golden State Warriors finished sixth in the West but were eliminated by the LA Clippers in the First Round of the Western Conference Playoffs.

The Golden State Warriors earned their first NBA Championship since 1975. They went through Anthony Davis' New Orleans Pelicans, Marc Gasol's Memphis Grizzlies, James Harden's Houston Rockets, and LeBron James' Cleveland Cavaliers.

Even with Durant, Curry was the Warriors' top scorer throughout the season, averaging 25.3 points per game through 79 matches.

Comparing Stephen Curry's Rings to the winningest players in NBA history

Stephen Curry's four NBA Championship rings him among some of the greatest players in NBA history. His accomplishments stand out as he was the star of the Warriors' success, not a fortunate role player.

While Bill Russell and Sam Jones likely won't be caught anytime soon, Stephen Curry sits among legends like Shaquille O'Neal, Robert Parish, and LeBron James with four NBA Championships.

At 35, Stephen Curry doesn't look like he'll be slowing down soon. His dominance with the Warriors is only matched or exceeded by some of the greatest. Still, at the point guard position, Curry is just one title away from challenging Magic Johnson as the most outstanding point guard ever.

Stephen Curry's NBA Finals appearances compared to NBA legends

Stephen Curry may have gotten off to a slow start in his career, but he made the Golden State Warriors one of the league's most competitive teams since 2015. Curry is one of the league's most consistently successful players, with six NBA Finals appearances in nine seasons and four championships in nine post-season appearances.
