It’s tough for anyone to wrap their head around the seemingly impossible suddenly becoming the opposite. Don’t believe us? Just ask Oscar Robertson about the never-before-seen dominance of Steph Curry.

The Hall of Fame guard appeared on ESPN Radio’s “Mike & Mike” Thursday morning, and offered a simple explanation behind the consistently mind-boggling performance of basketball’s brightest star. Here’s Robertson, helpfully transcribed by Sports Illustrated.

“[Curry] has shot well because of what’s going on in basketball today. In basketball today, it’s almost like if you can dunk or make a three-point shot, you’re the greatest thing since sliced bread…there have been some great shooters in the past…but here again, when I played…if you shot outside and hit it, the next time I’m going to be up on top of you. I’m going to pressure you with three-quarters, half-court defense. But now they don’t do that. These coaches do not understand the game of basketball, as far as I’m concerned.”
