Even though nobody is talking about it so much, but Stephen Curry is having another MVP type season. The two time NBA MVP is having another great year so far for the Warriors averaging 28 points, 5 assists and 5 rebounds while at the same shooting a very high percentage from the field.
People are so accustomed to him doing great things on a nightly basis that there isn’t much hype around it now it was a couple of years ago. His teammates recognized the same thing and Andre Iguodala who has been Steph’s teammates for several years now noticed the same thing.
“It’s interesting because I think he’s still underrated. He doesn’t really get the respect he deserves. Guys think, ‘he uses a lot of screens’ and think they can draw mismatches with him defensively. He’s a real problem.” Calls him 2nd best PG ever.
[Slater] Andre Iguodala on Steph stepping up late: “It’s interesting because I think he’s still underrated. He doesn’t really get the respect he deserves. Guys think, ‘he uses a lot of screens’ and think they can draw mismatches with him defensively. He’s a real problem.” Calls him 2nd best PG ever. from r/nba
Draymond Green also referred to Steph’s impact on basketball which is bigger than anyone ever thought it would, especially now when you have kids in middle schools or high schools trying to imitate his every move.
“(Curry’s) impact on the game on the whole (is underrated). He can not score a bucket and wreck an entire defense. Just his impact on the defense as a whole, this organization, and, most importantly, his impact on the game of basketball. Have you been to a high school game or a middle school game? When Mark Jackson said a few years ago ‘Steph is ruining the game of basketball,’ we
wasall pissed off, like, ‘What? What is he talking about?’ I went to some high school games (recently) and said: ‘I see what he’s talking about.’ He’s not talking about Steph, per se, ruining basketball, but he’s making a lot of other people think they can do what he does and it ain’t the case. So organization: good, game: good, team: good, but the game of basketball is where he really makes his hay”
