Stephen Curry is one of the greatest basketball players of all time. As such, it goes without saying that he is especially difficult to pin down when you are defending him.
Many have tried – and most have failed.
He is just too potent of a scorer.
During a recent interview, Steph revealed the one player who he feels ultimately guards him the toughest.
“Honestly, my brother, because he knows my game so well, and there’s always that kind of vibe of him disarming me when I’m out there cause I feel like I’m so proud to see my brother out there on the court,” he said.
“I kinda get lost in that moment. But outside of Seth, I’d probably say Tony Allen or Avery Bradley.”
This isn’t the first time Steph has gotten brutally honest regarding his brother. He understands and sees Seth constantly attempting to compare himself to his more-heralded sibling, and the Warriors star recognizes it for what it is.

Big picture, the topic of who gives Steph the most trouble defensively has been one that has been broached several times this season. Draymond Green had a pretty strong take on the subject earlier this year.
At the end of the day, a lot of players – including Seth – can slow Steph down sometimes, but it’s never for long. He’s too unstoppable to be kept down for an extended period of time by any one defender.
