Metta World Peace predicted Stephen Curry’s greatness

2 min read

Metta World Peace saw something in Stephen Curry that had yet to be realized by the rest of us.

The NBA player formerly known as Ron Artest posted about Curry in 2013, claiming the Warriors star was on track to win an MVP award and be a top-10 player in the league. World Peace drudged up those tweets Tuesday to show how strongly Twitter users responded — questioning his sanity and asking if he was drunk.

That was indeed a bold statement in 2013, before Curry exploded over the last few seasons. His 19.2 points per game and 46.5 percent shooting were low by his now-lofty standards. Curry hadn’t been named to an All-Star team — something he’s done every season since — and he had not won two MVP awards.

So while the Twitter users were a bit harsh about World Peace’s prediction, he can take serious credit for calling Curry’s rise.
