Dahntay Jones is in hot water over comments he made about two-time MVP Steph Curry. The former guard for the Cleveland Cavaliers has slammed the Warriors guard, saying he doesn't belong in the top 10 players in the NBA today. This is even after Curry has posted outrageous stat numbers and broken great NBA records over the past three seasons.

Jones, who last played for the Cavaliers but has yet to sign with any team for the upcoming NBA season, was on the Barstool Sports podcast over the weekend.

While there, the former Duke standout revealed his top 10 players in the NBA. Interestingly, he did not include Steph, saying he only made it "outside" his top list, around "11, 12."

"People get mad at me because I don't declare him a top 10 player in the NBA, which is fine," Jones said during the podcast. "I've got him on the outside, like 11, 12."

Jones' comments about the Golden State Warriors stand out have been booed by NBA and GSW fans alike, saying the player is just bitter about losing to the Warriors twice in the last three NBA Finals.
