Jordan -- widely regarded as the greatest basketball player ever -- made the comments Monday during an appearance on Today. Curry -- arguably the best shooter of all time -- is entering his 11th season with the Golden State Warriors. The six-time All-Star, two-time NBA MVP and three-time NBA Finals champion already sits at No. 3 all-time in made career 3-pointers.
"So Steph Curry shouldn't be offended when he watches this?" Today's Craig Melvin asked.
"I hope not. [Curry] is still a great player," Jordan said. "Not a Hall of Famer yet though. He's not."
Jordan, 56, also spoke about being a first-time grandfather, philanthropy, his tequila line and more. The six-time NBA Finals champion and five-time NBA MVP was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2009. Jordan averaged 30.1 points, 6.2 rebounds, 5.3 assists and 2.3 steals per game during his NBA tenure. Curry has averaged 23.5 points, 6.6 assists, 4.5 rebounds and 1.7 steals per game during his career.
Curry has a 99.98 percent Hall of Fame probability, according to Basketball Reference. LeBron James, Kevin Durant and Chris Paul are the only active players with a better chance to get into the Hall of Fame.
