Re: Stephen Curry

He should absolutely jump this year; there's about zero chance his stock gets any hotter than it is now. I'll believe the 6'3 talk when he actually measures it.

Re: Stephen Curry

I heard Pat Forde claim that he's already said he's staying for his junior year so that he can play the point next year.I have no idea if that's true or now.Haven't seen it written anywhere.

Long term that's a great move for him if he can learn the point and become a legit prospect to handle and distribute in the NBA.Short term he's not going to go much higher than he would right now unless there's a much thinner talent pool next year.

Also have the rights to Petteri Koponen, but who knows how good/bad he really is.
Are they really going to let JJ walk and not re-sign him?

The move could hurt him though. What if his numbers see a big decrease and he is a worse player at the PG spot? Thats a double edged sword.

I think scouts have already seen his handle he dribbles it dangerously high. It can't hurt him because I think he will have a successful NBA career. Better to wait and stick in the NBA than jump in early and fall out. The only people who can get "hurt" by staying in school are cases like Julius Hodge where people think they can do things they can't as an underclassman. Right now everyone knows if you pick Curry you're just getting a shooter. 2 more years developing skills would be very good for him, and with his dad I'm sure money isn't a big issue.

I have high hopes with this kid he is very scrawny that may get fixed a little as he just had a growth spurt when he stops growing he will fill out. If he can improve his handle he will be a very good prospect

Re: Stephen Curry

i understand why most of you have such low expectations for him. 1st off, he's small, but he is still a young kid, dont see any reason why he can't grow to be 6'4 maybe even 6'5. he's not just a shooter either, he scores from anywhere. yeah, its more then likely he will be a bench player like House or Stoudomire, but one players noone compares him to is Iverson. why not? he may not be as tough, but he can stay on the outside more cause he can shoot better.

Re: Stephen Curry

I actually compared him to Monta Ellis in another thread, without the leaping ability that is

In size, yes, but he's kind of an inverse of Monta in terms of offensive production. Ellis is mainly a slasher, while Curry won't be anywhere near the basket in the NBA. Ellis still doesn't shoot wellfrom 3, either, while Curry is excellent.

Re: Stephen Curry

Ellis shoots extremely well from midrange. I dont think Curry will have that problem either. Curry also has decent ball handling skills, its whether he can take the hits that Monta deals with that will answer the slashing question

Re: Stephen Curry

now curry has to come out this year right? he doesn't need the money(i wouldn't think anyway), but his stock isn't going to get any higher.

i still think he's just a backup good shooter on the nba level though. for him to ever get big minutes on an nba team, he either needs to have the skills to play pg(which i don't think he does) or play with a lebron/kobe/tmac/wade/roy type wing that is going to be the primary ball handler once the ball crosses half court so he can utilize his off ball game and shooting ability.

Re: Stephen Curry

I think people tend to look at his outside shooting too much because he takes so many shots from there. granted i only seen him these past 2 games, but he can easily take people off the dribble, he is very quick, and he can finish inside around bigs. there was 1 play in particular in yesterdays game, 2nd half, he was left open under the basket, got the ball, but waited for a defender to get closer jumped into him and made the lay=up plus 1. that made me think of AI.

Well, apparently Lebron really likes him.
