After the Milwaukee Bucks handed the Golden State Warriors their first loss of the season on Saturday, Bucks head coach Jason Kidd paid Warriors point guard Steph Curry the ultimate compliment.
Jason Kidd on Steph Curry: "He's this generation's Jordan. We all wanted to be like Mike, and children today will grow up seeing Steph." — Rusty Simmons (@Rusty_SFChron) December 12, 2015
Kidd entered the league in 1994, at the peak of Jordan's career during the second Chicago Bulls' three-peat. Around the world, Michael Jordan is considered not only the best player on the Bulls, but the best basketball player of all time.
Before Saturday's 108-95 loss in Milwaukee, the Warriors with reigning MVP Curry were guarding a 24-0 record for the season thus far. They move to 24-1 and play the Phoenix Suns next on Wednesday.
