Dahntay Jones: Steph Curry not a Top 10 player in NBA


Dahntay Jones made a bold statement about Steph Curry over the weekend.

"People get mad at me because I don't declare him a Top 10 player in the NBA," Jones said on Barstool Sports' Mickstape podcast. "I got him on the outside, like 11-12."

Jones is.........


According to the 36-year old, the three best players in the NBA (in order) are:

1) LeBron James
2) Kawhi Leonard
3) Kevin Durant

Even after Durant's performance in the Finals, Jones still thinks Kawhi is better?

"Yes, because that team is going to the Finals with or without him (Durant)," Jones answered.

The other players above Curry on Jones' list (not in order):

John Wall
Paul George
Russell Westbrook
James Harden
Chris Paul
Karl-Anthony Towns
Anthony Davis

Not sure what Curry has to do to crack the Top 10.

Jones had another bold take:

"In my opinion, Draymond is the most important player on that team."

Remember this?
