Re: Stephen Curry

Curry doesn't look 6'3" to me. I think he's closer to 6'1". Regardless, he's a NBA-level shooter with average athleticism and above average handles. I think there's going to be some teams interested in using their late 1st round pick on Curry. If nothing else, he'll become a shooting specialist. If he develops his PG skills more he'll be a 2nd unit PG. He really should declare, because I don't see his stock rising anymore than this.

The couple of posts after mine has addressed issue. He played point in high school, they moved him to 2 guard at Davidson. You might have not noticed, but Richards the Davidson point guard is pretty good at running an offense

Re: Stephen Curry

Curry's been unbelievable. LeBron seems to be a big fan as well. Maybe he's looking for a Damon Jones replacement... Can't wait to see how he plays tomorrow against Chalmers and Robinson, one of the best defensive backcourts in the nation. It could be a struggle.

well thank you captain obvious, Gmac had big east defenders on his back from UCOnn, pitt, etc and Curry is defended by who?? you cant even name me 2 other teams in that conference much less the players on those teams.

i think it's pretty fair to say if Gmac played at Davidson and it's weak mid major opponents, his 3pt %age would be at least 3% higher, and Curry if guarded by athletic guards in the big east would be 3% lower

35.4+3 = 38.4
42.9 -3 = 39.9

that looks like slightly better to me......look at the regular season when he was actually playing legitimate teams
North Carolina 2-12 from 3pt range
UCLa 3-10 from 3 pt range

his percentage is 42 thanks to lighting up the likes of georgia southern, nc greensboro etc, you put him up against louisville, pitt, uconn, he's not shooting that same %age.

playing pg in high school doesn't really mean anything. playing pg in high school doesn't translate to being able to play pg in the nba.

come on. just because curry is way better than gmac ever was doesn't mean that you have to pretend curry is garbage to make up for it. that still doesn't mean curry will necessarily be anything more than a shooter coming off the bench in the nba, but he at least has that role in his future.

Curry's game reminds me a lot of Salim Stoudamire when he was at Arizona. Primarily a spot up shooter, however he could take you off the dribble and get away with it in college, but won't be as effective in the league.

And he wasn't drafted higher because of his size and inability to run the point effectively. It doesn't really matter if Curry could run a team or not because he isn't going to do that anyway in the NBA. It won't be his job to set up teammates, he will be used as a spot up shooter who might explode in some games like Gibson can.

Re: Stephen Curry

Curry's been great in the tourney, but I don't see him declaring for the draft right now. The one thing he needs to do is try and bulk up his size, cause he would get somewhat abused in the NBA by other PG's.

Re: Stephen Curry

I hate to say it,because it's a rather unpleasant thought.Still the similarities to Trajan Langdon are pretty striking.Langdon was probably a slightly better shooter as a senior,a little bit more physically developed by the time he left Duke.Still he was never able to cut it in the NBA because of his physical limitations.Now over in CSKA Moscow Trajan is a stud.Worst case for Curry is that he ends he killing them over in Europe.His skills are perfectly suited for the FIBA game and teams are far more amenable to setting multiple screens for jumpshooters

Re: Stephen Curry

He needs to stay in school. He isn't ready for the NBA. Body and skill wise.

?? i never said curry is trash, i'm saying if i have to project his NBA career, it will be trash and non existent.......i like curry, but i dont have blinders on......Gmac's got the big east title multiple times, he has an NCAA championship which would not have been won without him, so if you wana go by accomplishments, he's more accomplished than Curry by NCAA standards......

that being said, not being able to play PG well enough in HS to get recruited pretty much means unless some miracle happens, you wont be a good enough to play PG in the NBA........

that being said, i dont think his NBA stock can get any higher, even if his body's not ready, it never will, barring a growth spurt i dont think his draft stock will go higher.....i mean next year, if davidson goes out in the first round, he's an afterthought........since i personally dont think he has much of an nba future, he might as well just declare cause it'll probably be the same end result, a nice career in europe, unless he feels like going the D League route and hoping to make a roster via injuries, and even if he does, it'll probably be a 12th man.
