Just watched the Duke Carolina game from last year when seth curry went bonkers in the 2nd half. It got me wondering as i saw him play does he have a shot of playing in the NBA? while watching him he seemed to be 1 of those players who can be really good in college but not be much of a factor if he ever gets to the league. He's not sneaky athletic like his brother and doesnt have the same handles. He has a good shot but i dont think id be wrong in saying he seemst to be a streak shooter rather than a pure shooter. and Coach K did a great job hiding him on defense because he cant really guard anyone either. Im a huge duke fan and i love all the guys on my team but i wonder how yall feel about his NBA potential...
Good shooter, BUT struggles to create his own shot, below average size for an NBA SG, poor defensive player, below average athletecism and quickness, his chances in the NBA is very slim..IMO.
Will make it 2nd rounder maybe late 1st wont last long tho.
I hear you on the name Curry. His older brother is a stud. His dad was a stud. Duke will win a lot of games. Seth will score points while Plumlee's defend for him. He could graduate with a championship or two (I think he has one but it was his restricted year when transfered to Duke). People are going to think that all the intangibles are there. So I could see him going in second round.
Spot up shooter who doesn't do much more, a poor mans Steve Kerr at best.
everybody was sayin these exact things about steph curry... but i think seth will actually be like this..
Funny how every single thing we're hearing about Seth's shortcomings are the same things we heard about Steph until he proved otherwise in the NBA. As of right now, I don't see that good fo an NBA player, but who's to say that in 2 years he's not better developed. For some reason, I just don't trust myself going against a Curry accomplishing his goals. I already missed on one Curry lol.
I think he'll end up going in the second round simply because of his name. Taylor Griffin got drafted by the Phoenix Suns too, but who is remembered more (and who has stayed in the league)?
I think Seth will make a team but he won't ever be a huge factor on any team. The only system I think he would work well in would be the Spurs or the Celtics where he could just spot up and come in as a reserve with no pressure.
Spot-up shooter. He's not as quick or as good a ball-handler or passer as Stephen Curry. Stephen Curry could score at a high level, win, and take over games with his shot and quickness more than Seth Curry. Not to mention that Stephen Curry actually played PG in college for a year. Seth will never in life be trusted to run a teams offense that this high a level.
Kids a great shooter, but cant guard anybody in college let alone the NBA.
Both Steph and Seth had exceptional freshman years at smaller schools, but I'm curious how Stephen would have done if he had transfered to a big time program like Duke. I think he would have had a bigger role than Seth has had at Duke but we'll never know.
You read Realgm today JNixon? Curry says he;s going to be playing the PG next year.
i just cant see seth curry in the nba... just dont see it happening
"You read Realgm today JNixon? Curry says he;s going to be playing the PG next year"
Well, we'll see then. He obviously will be given a crack it. Rivers will have the ball in his hands lot more though. Curry will be an Ashton Gibbs-style PG probably, a guy who brings it up the floor and then gives the ball up to a better playmaking wing (Rivers) to get free for shots.
you need to get your own show on NBA tv your knowledge of the game is great.
I agree, it's why I always thought if he made the L it'd be in a Damon Jones/Derrick Fisher role.
There are only so many of those guys in the NBA though, and a good amount of guys in that mold in college that end up in Europe. And there are even better options than him.
Seth doesn't have the court vision/point guard natural skill set that his brother has
I agree, nut how many overachievers are there in the L. Like I said in my first post, I sincerely doubt Seth is an NBA player, but at the same time, there hav been son many players before him that should have never made the L either but managed to keep proving doubters wrong. His brother at one point one of these guys.
Seth Curry isn't an overachiever just because he has family thats been in/is the NBA.
And I'm sure you called Steph Curry as well.
Choosing to attend Duke was a wise choice..It'll teach him how to play off the ball..At Liberty he controlled the pace of the game becuz he constantly had the ball in his hands...Last season he played timid,he's a much better playmaking than he showed last season...They had him as mostly a shooter last season..I think that stymied his game..But Coach K is a great teacher..He's going to be 1 of the most improved players next season..
He has a chance to be a 1st rounder in 2 years,if he works on shooting off the dribble,get stronger and more importantly learn how to play defense the right way...
If Scheyer didn't make it, then I don't know why Seth Curry would. Scheyer probably wasn't as consistent of a shooter, but he was better than Seth Curry in pretty much every other facet.
Yeah exactly, and Scheyer was 6'5 as a PG/SG and didn't make it. Seth Curry is a prospect because he has family in the NBA.
Sometimes guys get lucky by latching on with the right team...
