^ Jordan was 6'6" in his rookie year.
The difference was his weight - 195lbs instead of the 216lbs he'd eventually be.
If Iverson was 6'6" he'd be similar to rookie Jordan.
I'm not sure what any of this has to do with the most entertaining duo.
Whether Curry on his own is entertaining or not is also kind of irrelevant, because Curry is not a duo.

Jordan was LISTED at 6'6" in the NBA, but he was actually closer to 6'4.x" which is what he was listed at in college and measured at during the '92 Olympics. Kobe was also listed at 6'6" but actually a little under 6'5". 99% of the time, the NBA will list players at their height in shoes which typically adds 1-2 inches.

You can't say what Iverson would be if he were 6'6". That's nonsense. No one knows. It's like trying to describe MJ or Kobe if they were 6'11" power forwards instead of 6'4-6'5 guards.

Anyway, my point was that Steph paired with just about any top 10 player will win the duo award for me. I was just getting into why I think Steph is so entertaining. He lacks a lot of the physical tools and makes up for it with with brains, timing, deception, skill...much like Bird who was also very entertaining.

^ You said "Young MJ was a 6'4-6'5 guard, but his game...."
He was always 6'6" in the NBA.
I'm not sure why you'd bring Olympic heights into this.
We all know the Olympics doesn't measure with shoes on, but that is not relevant in a conversation about Jordan's NBA career.
I never referred to his college or Olympic career.
The only Young Jordan I referred to was 1984-85 when he was 195lbs and moved more like Iverson.
Anyway, I'm not going to waste time on this tangent, when this thread is about entertaining duos.
And saying that Curry can be paired with just about any top 10 player, is irrelevant nonsense.
If you are talking about Curry as a DUO, it means you are pairing him with another Warrior specifically which I assume to mean Green, Thompson or Durant.
