NBA news: Steph Curry and Trae Young comparison to Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant made

That is the opinion of former star Paul Pierce.

Curry top scored on Monday night, pouring in 30 points on 10-of-17 shooting in the Warriors’ 128-111 victory over the Atlanta Hawks.

The two-time MVP stole the show with Young also impressing, raining in 20 points.

While Young and Curry are similar with their shooting styles outside the paint, Pierce doesn’t think Young will ever be as good as Curry.

“His style of play is similar – he shoots 30 footers,” Pierce said on The Jump.

“He knows he bases his game on Steph’s.

“We watched him at college and it’s easy to make that comparison.

“Is he going to be Steph Curry? Of course he’s not.

“Throughout the history of the league there has always been comparison.

“We compare Kobe to Michael Jordan.

“There’s always going to be comparisons with styles.”

Curry, meanwhile, believes Young has to carve out his own career path rather than look to emulate him.

He said: “Honestly it’s getting old to be honest. Again, he’s his own player.

“But at the end of the day that’s not what is going to carry you through the league. It’s what you do with the opportunity you have in front of you.

“I’ve been blessed to have a lot of success and experiences in the league.

“Obviously I expect Trae to carve out his own lane and be himself.

“He doesn’t have to be anybody else but himself.”
