On the surface,  could not be any different from Michael Jordan. Curry is a shooter, Jordan was a slasher. Curry made a name for himself in the Bay Area, Jordan made his in the Windy City. Curry is generous with his time and happy to see other players succeed; Jordan was notoriously cutthroat and driven to be the best.
