The Golden State Warriors’ superstar Stephen Curry is the absolute leader in ESPN’s Real Plus-Minus (RPM), which is “measured in net point differential per 100 offensive and defensive possessions,” according to a report by NBC Sports Bay Area.

The RPM also includes teammates’ numbers, opponents, and other pertinent factors.

“Outside of the 2019-20 season in which Curry was limited to five games by injuries and the coronavirus suspension of the season, he has led the NBA in RPM in every season since 2012-13.”

This season, Curry averaged a 7.08 RPM, increasing his figure from the previous campaign, which was obviously marred by his wrist injury. He bested LeBron James, who had a 6.73 for second place, Rudy Gobert, Paul George, and Giannis Antetokounmpo. Also finishing in the top 10 were Nikola Jokic, Joel Embiid, James Harden, Damian Lillard, and a bit surprisingly, Lonzo Ball.
