The 5-time NBA champion with the Los Angeles Lakers, Derek Fisher thinks that Stephen Curry belongs in the same category as Kobe Bryant, Tim Duncan, and Shaquille O'Neal.

Former Los Angeles Lakers point guard Fisher puts the Golden State Warriors superstar Curry next to these three all-time greats.

"Steph Curry has separated himself as one of the few guys in the history of our game, that when you look back, wherever he was or whenever he played, his teams were really successful," Fisher told Inside the Warriors.

"I put him [Stephen Curry] in that category with Tim Duncan, Kobe [Bryant], and Shaq [Shaquille O'Neal]. Wherever he is, success is going to follow," added Fisher

Curry has already tied O'Neal with four NBA titles and lacks one more to tie Bryant and Duncan, who both have five.

Curry is already 34, but avoided getting injured for the past two seasons and has not slowed down, and is likely to still have multiple chances at another NBA title.

The previous NBA Final's MVP, Curry, averaged 25.5 points, 6.3 assists, and 5.2 rebounds per game last season.
