Lakers Would Be The Best Fit For Stephen Curry

The Lakers would be the best fit for Stephen Curry. He can easily play the same role as former Phil Jackson players, Steve Kerr, John Paxson, Craig Hodges, B.J. Armstrong, and now Derek Fisher, which is to let the wing players ala Michael Jordan, Scottie Pippen, Toni Kukoc, Ron Harper, Kobe Bryant, and Lamar Odom, do most of the ball handling, while the point guard spots up for a open three pointer. The triangle offense, is one of the only offenses in the league that doesn't require a true point guard, which suits Stephen Curry well. It just requires for the point guard to consistently knock down open shots, and Stephen Curry can definitely do that.

Nuggets

He would be a good fit on the Lakers but I think the team he could push over the top is the Denver Nuggets. They have been looking for a shooting guard like him for years.

not necessarily now the ppl

not necessarily

now the ppl u mentioned were point gaurds

not tweeners juss point guards plus they could shoot well

good point gaurds

now i dont look at curry as a point gaurd

hes skinny and cant do nuffin wit the elite nba point gaurds like rondo,parker,paul ford,iverson,brooks speed wise

and nuffin wit the stronger gaurds

and if the lakers could they would get rid of fisher

but the wont cuzz he knows the triangle offense better then any point gaurd in the nba

fisher can excute plays,and maker them up as he goes and he has experience i think he was drafted by the lakers

plus he stayed in collge 4 years

the triangle offense do consist of shooting point gaurds

but also all around Pointgaurds with experince

not tweeners

cuzz if that was the case

farmar the more offensive and fast point gaurd would start over fisher

now a run and gun offense would suit him

or utah

were they can use him like they use korver get open and shoot

spot up and shoot

bassically jusss to out shoot opponents

and i look at curry as a shooting gaurd

Good Fit With Lakers?

I think that if the Lakers drafted Stephen Curry, he would ride the bench all the way untill Mark Masden becomes an All-Star(never will happen). The Lakers just got Adam Morrison and they do not need another shooting guard. Even though people says he is supposedly turning into a point guard, he will never become a great point guard because he lacks vision on the court. Even though he averages 6 assists per game, watch one of Davidson's games, and the only assists he gets is when there is someone wide open in the paint. As far as Stephen Curry goes, I think that at best he could become like an Eddie House(very unlikely) but I think he is to small and to predictable to be a star NBA player.

Denver

A starting five of Billups, Curry, Melo, KMart, and Nene is competing for a title... with JR Smith, Kleiza, and the Birdman coming off the bench.

Way better than Eddie House

Curry will be better than Eddie House i think, who can literally do nothing but tie his shoes and shoot threes, albiet he shoots them very well. I don't know bout the Lakers, I could see where the train of thought would come from. The only thing about curry's game is it is extremely unstructured, He might be one of the whackiest offensive players ive ever seen in college. Part of that probably has to do with the hillarious measures he has to go to score now he is so closely guarded. I think he has alot more point guard potential than people think. He hasn't EVER had a reliable second scoring threat at Davidson, I think if all that attention was off of him and on other people, he has very good potential to be able to either beat or get his shot off against one guy guarding him. An average or bad defensive NBA point guard would have fits with this guy, the only way to stop him getting his shot off is length. Im not saying he is a natural point, but does anybody here doubt he can be one of those guys who can go off for 40 on any given night (not saying everynight or even often, but &$#%#&@! a Linus Klieza did it)? I don't think he will dominate but I think he can be a good starter, or spark off the bench. Plus, fans would love the guy, he could help a team's ticket sales. Bottom line, when you actually watch him, you can tell that the kid can play at a level only 2 or 3 other guys can play at right now in this draft, Id take him mid teens.

denver,utah,knicks,golden

denver,utah,knicks,golden state,new jersey, magic will all b good spots for him to go

and san antino but i doubt they will get him

but dont b surprised if a rebuilding team grabs him

because of his talent

and build a team where he will b 1 of the top scoring threat strarting or off the bench anybody that drops

40 points gamse often in collge wil make a seamless transition in the nba
h emight not do it with ease but he will drop big numbers in his career
everybody talks about hes small yup he is

but he small in collge to its juss as hard

with team focusing there whole defense on stopping him

in the nba he will get less attention

so it will b a lil easier

once his body catches up wit his talent

Jason Terry?

Anyone think he could play a Terry type role for dallas play the 2 with a big physical guard defending other twos and play spot pg duty. I think Curry will be a great 2nd scoring option

I think comparing Curry and

I think comparing Curry and Terry at the same age would be a good comparison. Terry was quicker, Curry more skilled I think, and both amazing shooters. It's a shame most of Terry's career was wasted in Atlanta playing with nobody and getting no recognition.

I Disagree

Curry is a stud an will be more than just a role playing shooter. Curry is putting up amazing numbers against the best teams in tha nation outside of his conference schedule with basically a JV team surrounding him. And its not like tha game plan is a secret because everyone in tha arena knows whos gonna shoot the ball. So imagine Curry with nba talent surrounding him where there isnt so much pressure to score,score,score. I think the Jason Terry comparison is dead on. Curry is a scoring guard who can also be a playmaker using his scoring ability 2 find open teammates. I see him as an above average role player but not quite an all-star in the Jason Terry or Mo Williams mold. He's an good comb guard on the nba level.

the nuggets had a player like him, and they just got better

not sayin he is an athlete like iverson, but he is similar in that he is an undersized 1/2 hybrid who needs to shoot alot and have the ball alot, and has a really unpredictable offense. They got a traditional point guard and are much better for it. Not saying that means Curry can't make it, I think he will be every bit as good as terry, that is a great comparison, i think maybe a little better. Im just sayin Denver hasn't needed a sg like him for years, that makes no sense
