Steph Curry is in the middle of his seventh season in the NBA. He will turn 28 years old on March 14.
Is it too soon to consider him one of the top point guards ever? Apparently not.
On Tuesday, ESPN's panel of NBA writers put together a list of who they consider the Top 10 point guards of all-time.
Curry checked in at No. 4.
"He's gonna remembered in his own unique way. There's never been anybody like Stephen Curry," Warriors TV analyst Jim Barnett told KNBR 680 on Tuesday. "There's never been anyone off the dribble, off the bounce, creating his shot the way he does with the quick release and with the accuracy that he has, the consistency that he has.
"There's never been anybody like him ... he's not gonna be remembered as a player that dominates physically, but he just gets the job done."
Magic Johnson, who won five titles (and three Finals MVPs) and three regular season MVPs, was No. 1 on the list.
Oscar Robertson, who averaged a triple-double in the 1961-62 season (30.8 points, 12.5 rebounds, 11.4 assists) was No. 2.
John Stockton, the NBA's all-time career leaders in assists (15,806) and steals (3,265) came in at No. 3.
"I'll give you a little definitive answer: He's (Curry) gonna be remembered as a better player than John Stockton. There's no question about it," Barnett declared. "... He's going to be remembered as one of the greats of all-time. There's no question about it. And knowing him, he's going to add something to his game and be better next year."
Stockton's best season statistically was the 1989-90 campaign: 17.2 points, 14.5 assists, 2.7 steals, 51.4 percent shooting, 41.6 percent from deep. He made 47 3-pointers that year.
Curry's enjoying the best season of his career right now: 29.5 points, 6.5 assists, 2.1 steals, 50.6 percent shooting, 44.5 percent from deep. He's made 166 3-pointers in 36 games.
Stockton never finished in the Top 5 of MVP voting.
Curry won last year's MVP in a landslide, and is the favorite to capture the award again this year.
Rounding out the Top 10 were Isiah Thomas (No. 5), followed by Chris Paul, Steve Nash, Jason Kidd, Walt Frazier and Bob Cousy.
