is Steph Curry the best PG in the world right now?
 
Or is he too one-dimensional to take the #1 spot from Rondo/CP3? :confusedshrug:

Re: is Steph Curry the best PG in the world right now?
 
He's definitely not one dimensional. He owned the 2nd half of the season and stepped up even more in the playoffs, but I need to see more to put him over CP.

Curry? One-dimensional? WTF is wrong with you?

Re: is Steph Curry the best PG in the world right now?
 
Yes, I would take Curry over any other PG atm.

Yes, and I'm not even joking.

In the NBA ? Yes.

In the world ? I don't know,3rd most athletic player of all time Spanoulis is probably better.

He is playing better than any PG that is left in the playoffs now

Curry is in the zone. Spurs need to get him out of that zone

Re: is Steph Curry the best PG in the world right now?
 
He has to be. Definitely the best shooter in the NBA. Love watching this kid play.

Best shooter in the league, and might be one of the best pure scorers in the league.

Good Lord the kid is smooth.

goatbrooks hurt right now... so yeah why not curry :cheers:

Re: is Steph Curry the best PG in the world right now?
 
Yes...deadly scorer/shooter/slasher ...great passer...leader by example...best player on his team.... I'd have to say that he is... He's another pg that is living proof that the scoring pg is better than the distributor pg.

inclinerator 05-07-2013 01:04 AM

Re: is Steph Curry the best PG in the world right now?
 
he definitely is, combination of passing and best shooter and isnt too shabby at d

Steph and CP3 are neck n neck for 1st in my opinion

Jailblazers7 05-07-2013 01:06 AM

Re: is Steph Curry the best PG in the world right now?
 
Not going to comment on where I'd rank him but he is just such a natural out on the court. Great feel for the game, amazing shooting touch, smooth/natural body movement, etc. It is really a joy to watch.

How do you stop a PG that can make jumpshots like layups if you give him an inch of space?

crazy

Are you saying the Spurs should play "dirty" ala the Nugs/Faried? :no:

Rubio2Gasol 05-07-2013 01:09 AM

Re: is Steph Curry the best PG in the world right now?
 
One dimensional?

He has more dimensions than Paul. Watch him play - he's much more than a shooter.

Iceberg Slim 05-07-2013 01:13 AM

Re: is Steph Curry the best PG in the world right now?
 
I'm so glad The Warriors got rid of Ellis.

That guy wouldn't let Curry shine. He would walk to the line and shoot the technical free throws instead of curry smh

Euroleague 05-07-2013 01:15 AM

Re: is Steph Curry the best PG in the world right now?
 
He would have to actually really be a point guard. He's not. He's a shooting guard, that people call a point guard.

livingby3's 05-07-2013 01:15 AM

Re: is Steph Curry the best PG in the world right now?
 
Curry certainly have a case, playing like the best PG in the league as of late.
But ISH at it's norm, riding a player ever so quickly.

Zodiac 05-07-2013 01:23 AM

Re: is Steph Curry the best PG in the world right now?
 
So right now the top PGs are Westbrook, Parker, Curry, Irvin, and John Wall

Re: is Steph Curry the best PG in the world right now?
 
Athletic guards westbrook and rose all hurt (thats what happens when you play out of position), Rondo hurt as well, CP3 been hurting for years, Deron is still quite good though but at the moment Curry is top 5 player in NBA.

Le Shaqtus 05-07-2013 10:26 AM

Re: is Steph Curry the best PG in the world right now?
 
Did you see the shot where he dropped the ball and then he picked it up and shot it straight through :eek: Kid was born to shoot.

Best shooter in the world by far, Top 5 or Top 10 all time, legit case for top world shooter all time.
I don't believe many here believed he could raise his game to such heights in the early stages of this season. I, for one, believed it was going to be Irving.

At this stage, however, Curry's been the indisputed top PG in the league, if we value the playoffs only. Nobody's close to him. Overall, he's probably top 5, with CP, Parker, Westbrook and whoever you want fifth overall.

stevieming 05-08-2013 03:56 PM

Re: is Steph Curry the best PG in the world right now?
 
The way he bossed the second half of the season and the playoffs means to me he is the No1 PG in the league right now.

His point explosion, straight up puts away teams....

Poor Denver getting killed in the 3rd quarter!!

Can't believe he wasn't an All Star.

stevieming 05-08-2013 04:01 PM

Re: is Steph Curry the best PG in the world right now?
 
Just to back up my statement a bit more.

Westbrook, although I dislike him, I can't dispute his impact, but he's hurt now.

Rose is out.

TP to me does't have the same ability to distribute the ball.

Kyrie not done anything in the playoffs.

Conley has battled CP3 well but doesn't have the same devastating impact.

CP3 - Really disappointed with CP3, with the stacked squad that he had and a 2 -0 lead. Just plays too slow a pace with his team, it's not like Vinny dictates what happens out there, it's CP3 running the show, and his slow pace didn't help his team mates.

His handles are very underrated.

Re: is Steph Curry the best PG in the world right now?
 
Curry is at a level now were he's back at his college level of dominance, while now facing NBA talent.

DStebb716 05-08-2013 04:20 PM

Re: is Steph Curry the best PG in the world right now?
 
It's either him or CP3.

Shade8780 05-08-2013 04:48 PM

Re: is Steph Curry the best PG in the world right now?
 
You guys have really been hating on CP3 lately. It's between Curry and him though right now. Stephen is my favourite player in the league, so I'll go with him :D :banana: If the Celtics can somehow package Rondo and some other guys for Curry, I'd be forever happy.

With the tendency to overreact to phenomenal performances, I'd be lauded as an NBA quality shooter (I'm not) if some ISH posters saw me on a good day.

Don't get the sarcasm? No, he's not. He's playing the best right now, sure, but give me sustained excellence then we can talk. I don't care about flash-in-the-pan (albeit a long "flash") best... hell, even Jerome James played like a star for a series.

This "flash" started before the playoffs begun... Why does no one watch the Warriors before they get to the playoffs? Unless they are playing OKC, LA, NY, or the Heat.

Re: is Steph Curry the best PG in the world right now?
 
Hes good, just wish he would have passed that last shot to a wide open gsw player behind the arc to potentially win the game instead of taking a wild shot.
