Sorry, I was gonna reply to your post, but when I read that...I really have nothing else to say to you.
I'll just explain my post a little better.
Curry is a C+ player. Curry is always disinterested on the defensive end, is a timid defensive rebounder, and turns the ball over too often. He has potential to be a B player because he has 10+ years in the NBA.
Dwight and Curry have the same problems offensively. Dwight is very one dementional, all he can do at this point is over power his man and dunk. He has potential offensively, but Dwight is a superior rebounder, defender, much more atheletic and explosiveness. He's also stronger and younger than Curry. Choosing Curry over Dwight Howard is comical. Ask how many Magic fans they would trade Dwight for Curry, and see how many laughs you would get in your face.
Tim Duncan = A+
Yao Ming = A
Amare Stoudimire = B+(close to an A, I'll consider it since he made the all NBA first team)
Dwight = B+
Boozer = B+
Al J = B
Curry = C+
Averaging 19.5 doesn't make you the best or one of the best centers in the NBA automatically. Curry averaged 19.5 as the primary option on offense.
Al Jefferson has proven he's as good, if not better than Curry. Jefferson averaged 16 ppg and 11 rebs and 1.5 blks on 2 turnovers a game. I MUCH rather have that from Curry than 19.5 ppg 6 rebs, not one block and almost 4 turnovers a game. Its frustrating and sad at the same time to know that it has to take almost 4 turnovers a game for Curry to score only 19 points per game. What will it take for 24 ppg? 6 or 7? How many touches does Curry need to reach that level? The saddest part is CURRY doesn't get alot of assist out of those touches. Prove me if I'm wrong, but I'm pretty sure Curry is last in the NBA in assist per 40 minutes. He has to be, or have one of the worst assist to turnover ratios in the NBA. Accually...I'm wrong, Curry is 411 in the NBA in assist to turnover ratio. .23 is as bad as it gets. Curry isn't the only good post scorer in the NBA, lets stop being foolish here. Guys like Al Jefferson, Howard, Carlos Boozer, Yao Ming, Tim Duncan, Amare Stoudmire are some of the premier big men in the NBA that have superior value compared to Curry.
Isiah has fooled many, many today believe Curry is capable of being a franchise player, Isiah has even convinced people that Curry is untradable. Its okay, thats Isiah's job. You will feel like fools in 2-3 years and look back at what you HAD believe, similar to the people who supported the Francis deal...the Crawford deal...not trading Frye for Artest...supporting Isiah's extention. These are the same people who turn out to look foolish on their blind assumptions.
Curry right now isn't an all star player. My frustration with Curry is his failure to PROGRESS on other aspects of his game. We know Curry strengths when he came here, if he's going to lead this franchise, we need him to be more WELL ROUNDED, because his weaknesses unfortunately weight out his strengths.
Good post man. I thought Curry should be atleast a B or B- minus, but you proved ur point. So i agree. Still, one of the most talked about goals for the Knicks offseason is to have Eddy develop a jump shot.
Curry with a jump shot would make us 3x more deadly on the floor. If they can teach him to shoot, then we can start talkin all-star games
