Every NBA fan has their top 5 or top 10 players of all-time. It really gets interesting, however, when past or present players reveal their list.
On Monday, Stephen Curry shared his top 5 players of all-time at an event to promote his new Facebook Watch series, "Stephen vs. The Game."
"I would say Jordan, Wilt, LeBron, Shaq and Magic," the two-time MVP said.

The only current player on Curry's list is LeBron James, who has shared a healthy rivalry with Curry and the Golden State Warriors over the past four seasons.
LeBron and Steph have faced off in each of the last four NBA Finals with Curry's team winning three of those four (2015,17,18). LeBron's lone title during that span was the only time in NBA history that a team came back from a 3-1 deficit in the NBA Finals.
Meanwhile, the other four players (Wilt Chamberlain, Michael Jordan, Shaquille O'Neal and Magic Johnson) are all multiple-time NBA Champions and Hall of Famers.
That's not all from the night. Curry had a funny response when asked about the toughest defender he has ever faced:

Obviously, he meant that jokingly.
Barring his selection for the All-Rookie First Team selection in 2010, Curry has received all of his individual (MVPs, All-Star & All-NBA) and team accolades (championships) after Steve Kerr took over as head coach of the Warriors in 2014.
