Rick Barry has a slight edge in scoring average and rebounds. Accuracy and assists? It's not even close.

shooting accuracy

Barry 0.449
Curry 0.473

3-point shooting

Barry 0.330
Curry 0.441

Assists per game

Barry 5.1
Curry 6.9

And I said he's even better this year. Scoring average is up to 34.6 points per game so far, assists down a bit--6.1 (of course that's in part because the whole team is making assists), shooting percentage is up to 0.514, 3 point acccuracy is about the same--0.442. Since Curry's rebounding stats have gone up to 5.2, he's narrowed that gap. If he keeps this up he will be the greatest shooter the game has ever seen.

He is the greatest shooter of the round ball the world has ever seen.. He is just toying with people now.. He had an easy 41 last night in 3 quarters, and he is shooting 53%! This year.... Insane...

Part of one season does not make for career averages.
The NBA initiated the three point shot in Rick Barry's last year where he played part time with a bad knee. He did shoot some in the ABA at the beginning of his career.
Of course Curry has more assists, he's a point guard.
Let's not anoint anyone the greatest ever anything until he has played a few more years at least than Curry.

You have to laugh at this:

Don't be ridiculous. Draymond Green has nearly 7 assists per game. I doubt that Rick Barry actually passed the ball that often.

Rick Barry was a great player, one of the top fifty of all time on this list: http://www.basketball-reference.com/awards/nba_50_greatest.html

He was a great driver early in his career when he was in the ABA, and became a very good shooter. But he was a ball hog and a prima donna. The year that the Warriors were dangerous was actually the year after they won the title. Gus Williams was a tremendous rookie, Jamal Wilkes shot the ball nearly as well as Barry, and Phil Smith was a reliable penetrating guard with a sweet pull up jumper. They were known for ten and twelve point runs and tenacious defense.

OK
Let me rephrase ... He's the best shooter I've ever seen..A talent the NBA has never seen...6 '3" a buck 90, impossible to guard with unlimited range, and passing skills that are hard to fathom... A freak

Last night--37 minutes, 39 points, 10 rebounds, 12 assists. I feel sorry for those who don't watch.

We watched a guy in Chicago do this for 15 years night after night. Lets see if they break the Bulls 72-10 record.

Different players and eras. I am certainly not arguing that Curry has eclipsed Jordan--or for that matter that anyone not named Wilt was the best player of all time. Bill Russell the most winning center, Magic and Michael in a class of their own. Dr. J and Dominique were also legendary, despite not winning titles. But for now....
