Re: Stephen Curry

Priest is wrong about his height. ESPN lists him at 6'3 and yeah I agree with you on that bball2223

Re: Stephen Curry

Curry isn't just a shooter.He's a good scorer and he's going to be able to play a Steve Kerr type role in the NBA.I really don't know if he's going to be able to be a point guard in the NBA.Richards is such a great distributor that you never get a look at Curry playing the point.In fact I really think Richards is going to be a very effective backup point in the NBA also.

Richards needs to learn how to finish before he ever sees an NBA court. Davidson would have won by around 20 had he made all the bunnies he missed. He really can handle and pass it though.

Re: Stephen Curry

I have seen him listed at 6'3"....maybe he grew a bit from his freshman year.

Re: Stephen Curry

Lol I should just post my back and forth between me and rocketeer on here. Thats how highly I think of his game. Should be a steal for whoever gets him. A dynamic scorer

Re: Stephen Curry

He's not 6'3, but man is he a fun player to watch and a great college player. He's not going to be a starter in the NBA, but he has to stick around with the way he can shoot the ball.

Re: Stephen Curry

I think he could start next to a dynamic shooting guard. I think Portland would be a good situation for him.

Re: Stephen Curry

I wouldn't mind the Pistons picking him up in the future to come off the bench and provide energy minutes, or possibly be a RIP Hamilton type player.

How many ****ing point guards does Portland need? Don't they already have five with the draft rights to about eight more?

Re: Stephen Curry

Curry isn't a point guard.Richards is the point guard and he's a really good college point.Curry may be able to play the point,but noone has seen enough of him with the ball to evaluate him.

He's going to have problems in the NBA if he can't learn to play the point or unless he can end up somewhere with a combo guard/point who can guard the opposing two.I'm on the fence with him.He obviously has plenty of talent and he's going to be able to play in the NBA,but it's a huge question as to whether or not he can be more than a sixth man.

The comparison for him is probably Ben Gordon,only we don't know if he has the handles to be a better point guard.If he can play the point that's huge for him.If he can't then he's going to have big time matchup problems in the NBA.Now if he went to Cleveland that'd be an entirely different story.If you have Lebron to do the creating and let him spot up he can play the point 36 minutes a night.If he goes somewhere where he'd have to be the creator then what's he going to give you outside of shooting.He's got to put on muscle and learn to contribute in other ways IMO.

Jack's out after this year. Sergio may be gone too. Blake will probably be around for another year or two at least. They're looking for someone who fits well next to Roy. Someone who can guard PGs, but play like an SG on offense. None of the players above can do both of those overwhelmingly well, so that's what they're looking for at this point. Also have the rights to Petteri Koponen, but who knows how good/bad he really is.

To un-hijack the thread...I think Curry could be a serviceable backup in the league. His downfall I think is that he's not an athletic freak like a lot of guys in the NBA. He's still finding ways to get it done in college, but it'll be a lot harder in the pros. See Morrison, Adam. I think Salim Stoudamire/JJ Reddick role at least for him in the NBA.

Re: Stephen Curry

He needs to get in the weight room. Like what happened to Redick, no one is setting 5-6 screens a possession for a backup point guard to get a decent look. They don't do it for Damon Jones, they won't do it for Curry.
