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.

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.

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.

Curry is at a level now were he's back at his college level of dominance, while now facing NBA talent.

It's either him or CP3.

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 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.

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.

He's a hybrid 1/2. That's why him and Jack are on the floor together a lot. If he was any bigger he'd be a natural 2. That being said he is the best shooter in the league and in my top 3 favorite to watch.
