Re: Stephen Curry

jason richards did an excellent job as a playmaker last year so they didn't need curry

but anytime he was put it that position he did a good job and i saw him make some very nice passes

i think he'll make the transition to PG fine
or at least combo guard as opposed to just really small SG
anyway i don't see how he isn't a lottery pick
and if he continues to shoot and score like he did and runs the PG as well as he has. I wouldnt put being a top 5 pick past him.

Don't forget his D also, while he isn't a shut down guy he has great timing for steals that turn the momentum of the game (in a ginobili sort of way)

Re: Stephen Curry

Yup, shoots just like his brother too. In defender's grills and all.

Re: Stephen Curry

See guys like Curry, Morrow and Korver prove that if you can at least handle a little bit, you can make the NBA as an elite shooter. The problem with Redick is that he is a horrific ballhandler and needs to run off screens to get his shot. He's not good enough to design an offense around.

Re: Stephen Curry

You guys hear this latest with this kid. He's been tearing up the ncaa so far this year, so Loyola decided to double him, EVERY SINGLE PLAY OF THE GAME. Davidson won by 30, Curry went 0-3 with 0 points. THe opposistion coach kept doubling even after the game was out of reach, just to keep curry from scoring. he sounded all proud of that strategy after the game too. what a loser. Its amazing the kind of effect this guy has.

"We had to play against an NBA player tonight," Patsos explained. "Anybody else ever hold him scoreless? I'm a history major. They're going to remember that we held him scoreless or we lost by 30?"

Some will remember the catcalls Patsos received from the fans when he stuck with the defense well after the game was decided. Davidson coach Bob McKillop was so annoyed he kept Curry in the game until the final minute.

"It seemed to me they were willing to risk the game at the expense of locking Steph up," McKillop said. "When you put two people on somebody and you do it for 30 minutes and at the end of the game, you have to wonder what the reasons for that are."

Curry, the darling of last season's NCAA tournament, had scored a career-high 44 points in a loss at Oklahoma this month. He followed that up with games of 30 and 39 points.

"If Oklahoma can't stop him, how is Loyola College going to stop him?" Patsos asked.
It might be a good strategy to a certain degree, judging from the comments it sure sounds like the only goal was to keep him scoreless at all costs.

Very embarrassing for the former Maryland assistant.

Should a coach really be making a statement as stupid as this.

That was so stupid. I'd be pissed if I was one of his players.

Re: Stephen Curry



Somehow I knew as soon as i heard they had held him scoreless that that's why he did it - to get on Sportcenter. Congrats - your team just got beat by a bunch of scrubs.

Re: Stephen Curry

I think its safe to say he is proving that not only can he play point in the league, but can be a pretty good one at that. Currently averaging 31.3ppg, 6.4apg, he had 10 assists today. His ball handling is also improved.
