So is Westbrook and KD's...

Curry has not played with a legitimate great player yet like his aforementioned peers. He's one of the first players who literally makes his teammates better as soon as he's on the court. Because of the ridiculous attention he commands players get open shots and look greater than they are if they were on different teams.

Also this whole Steph is a system player bs narrative needs to be fanned out. Steph was showing glimpses of this play during the Mark Jackson era and in college.

To say stephs a system player is ridiculous because I don't think so and it's not just under mark jackson, he has shown that at Davidson already. The point I'm trying to get across is people will have that discussion because of how great that team is and not necessarily how great each individual players are - ie the mavs have shown that in the 2010 playoffs even tho dirk went bat **** but it was still largely considered a "team" effort. to say he immediately make u better is an overstatement, why didn't he work with monte? Ya he was younger less polished and riddled with injuries but the time they were on together? The team had 2 legitimate MIP players candidate last year on the squad under a new coach and everything clicked. Now they're fueled by all the doubters in the off season and we ll c how far they can take this.

I feel you but wade butler and Beal are just as good right now and have seniority over him. Next year he should be a lock

Nope. Like I said yesterday, they should embrace the tank. Best thing they can hope to get out of this year is a top 10 pick

I agree. Being a "middle of the pack" team isn't going to do anything for them a

Pelicans lack depth.

GS is lucky to have steph period. Dude came in the league a lil one dimensional, fought through the injuries, worked his tail off, got better, and now is becoming great. Not even the best scouts in the world could've predicted this level of play from dude. Dare I say Steph and Lebby are the only dudes in the league that are outplaying their contracts? I'm not a warriors fan but I'm definitely a curry fan. Him and bron are about to break the bank when they re-up. smokin.gif

Kawhi Leonard is out playing his contract if you really want to be technical about it. If he could have been paid more he would have been.

They are already too far out and won't make up these games to get into the postseason.

I hated everything about the Pelicans squad outside of AD going into this season. Eric Gordon is one of my least favorite players in the league. Hate his game. Pellies gonna need to hit in free agency once he's out the door.

Perk out 2-3 months. League won't be the same without him.

I like Ryan Anderson as a stretch 4 and Ajinca is a decent back-up C, but other than that, I agree their roster is pretty bad.

how can people say that after the finals last year? the only knock was lebrons shooting percentage. if you're the clear cut best you should get the mvp and the finals mvp.

laugh.gif at the idea of giving him the MVP trophy.

He chucked up a bunch of shots and cost his team the championship. Funny that you'd rather overlook his field goal percentage when that was his most costly stat. Take any superstar from the last 30 years and give them free reign, and they would put up similar stats. The only person that was robbed of MVP was Steph.

They call him the young wolf. They say he rides into battle on the back of giant direwolf. They say he can turn into a wolf himself when he wants. They say he can't be killed.

Wait are you saying Steph deserved Finals MVP? roll.gif

Theres a reason dude aint get no ONE vote for that. I hate Igoudala but the impact he had on that series was too big to not give him that award

Ppl looking at Stephs stats in the Finals like that told the real story on his play in it lol

The Steph Curry praise in here is OD. Dude nice, he prob the best player in the league at the moment but all this all time great crap has to chill. Dude only been playing at this level for a couple years
post #11391 of 93193
The entire GSW offense was predicated on Curry. Obviously the biggest reason Iguodala got the Finals MVP was for his defense on LeBron. But Iguodala got those wide open threes because of Curry being present on the floor.
post #11392 of 93193
Steph deserved at least finals co-mvp

Iggy did his defensive thing but the reason why he flourished on the offensive end - why ANYONE flourished on that end - was cuz of all the attention Curry was getting.

Some people don't realize the kind of attention Curry commands. Take Steph out of the series and Iggy will hold Lebby down but look like a chump on the offensive end.

I looked at the Warriors remaining schedule and they have a legitimate shot at going 82-0 in the regular season.

Honestly, the people who voted Iggy MVP done created a monster. If Curry had won the MVP he would've been satisfied and had no motivation to get better. Then they snubbed him and awoke the sleeping beast within. God watch over us all.
