    My friend and I have this argument every day. You're on the right side of it though.

    I also agree with the OP. I mentioned how great he was playing a couple of times in the NBA thread and it just went ignored

    It doesn't take much to get the 8th seed in East

    I love his game, he's been the best PG in the East this year.

    Unfortunately he gets no love because he's on the Sixers.

    Eh...I've been a huge Steph fan since Davidson and Jrue balls for my favorite squad so I'm not really being biased when I say I agree

    My only problem with Jrue is he's still so careless with the ball. Watch the end of the Spurs game from earlier this and it was :x

    But, give Jrue an inside presence (Bynum) and he puts up elite PG numbers every night. Look at his squad right now and look at his stats. Boy is putting in work.

    i think that should only count if he's voted in.

    i mean in terms of exposure and perception , you can be considered the fourth best player

    in the league and still be underrated , heck... i even believe you can be the MVP and be underrated

    to an extent.

    I've watched both guys a decent amount. Jrue is already putting up elite PG numbers.. dude is averaging 19-9.0 with a terrible roster (seriously, the only players worth anything are Thaddeus Young and Evan Turner). He literally has the team on his back.

    Curry is averaging 20-6.5 with much better players around him. He has a worse FG% too.

    I would def take Holiday over Curry at this point, esp considering that Holiday is only 22 and Steph is turning 25 in 2 months. Curry should've been an All-Star though.

    Just wondering, if you put Jrue on the Warriors, do they have a better record? Worse record? Or about the same?

    Coaches vote > fans vote

    Fans don't know any better..

    Jrue isn't underrated, he just plays for a bad team

    It's tough to say. Jrue is better than Steph at distributing the ball and getting guys easy looks. But on the same token, GSW would miss Curry's outstanding shooting.

    I think GSW specifically works well for Curry because they have a pure PG in Jack who can come off the bench and drop dimes, allowing Steph to light it up. But if I was starting a new hypothetical team, I would probably take Holiday as my PG over Curry.

    Stephen Curry's shot alone would put him ahead of Jrue in my book.

    That release is :pimp:
