0 Stephen Curry-Superstar

By Shaee Flatt

Stephen Curry isn’t generally someone considered as an NBA “superstar," but after watching him play in Golden State’s series against Denver, he is to me. 

I only consider 7-9 players in the NBA superstars, but Curry is one of them. He does it all. He defends, he assists, he scores, and most importantly, he leads. 

Every single time Golden State needed to make a run against Denver, Curry stepped up. In game 4, he erupted for 22 points in the third quarter alone. In game 6, he once again sparked a huge third quarter for the Warriors by hitting four threes in the quarter. 

Plain and simple, Stephen Curry knows how to get the job done. He’s without a doubt, the best shooter in the world, and his all-around game is getting better and better. He can get to the rim when he needs to, but as long as that jump shot is falling, he won’t need to very often. As long as he gets a little bit of help around him, mainly from Center Andrew Bogut, Curry and the Warriors have a shot at upsetting the San Antonio Spurs in the second round.  

No matter the outcome of that series, when choosing players to build a franchise around, there aren’t too many I would put in front of Stephen Curry right now.
