Steph Curry is Ben Gordon

Steph Curry is Ben Gordon, they both have tremendous jumpers in which they score a good chunk of their points. Both are undersized 2 guards. Curry is better decision maker on top that to ( sorry i cant see curry being PG in the league ) They are very similar

No, you are looking too much

No, you are looking too much into their great jump shooting skills.

Curry cannot be as good as Gordon cuz Gordon is clearly more athletic, a lot more stronger, and won a championship with the Huskies. Keep in mind that Ben was a #3 pick and top scorer for the Bulls in past 3 years

Curry is best: Jason Terry/ worst: Eddie house

I think Curry will be a

I think Curry will be a point in this league because of his IQ and determination. Also i saw several plays in a few games where he showed an uncanny ability to make plays in tight situations. He actually has the ability to read and make plays. He just did not do it much until this past year. Ben Gordon is a full time shooting guard and he is bigger and stronger than Curry. They may be around the same height at this time but supposely Curry is still growing and may max out at 6'3" or 6'4". I like both player but I believe that the Bulls in not the perfect situation for Gordon if he wants to get paid. They have enough perimeter players that it would be stupid for them to play him over 8 million a year. When Deng comes back either Gordon or Salmons would have to come off the bench. The both are quality players who can score and Salmons has a cheaper deal that runs for a few more years so why resign Gordon when this draft is packed with excellent perimeter players.

I think they are different style players

They both have good shooting skills, but Gordon is a better athelete. He can absorb a lot more contact than Steph and has a better vertical. They can shoot their u no whats off, but I don't know if he has the finishing skills of Gordon. Gordon is a good finisher, as well as a great shooter. I think Curry is a legit point guard in the NBA too I agree. He is a more skilled passer than Gordon.

Curry will be no where near

Curry will be no where near as good as Gordon. Gordon is explosive, better athlete, much stronger, much faster ,overall just better then Curry will ever be... I also think Curry will be like a better Eddie House type player, Jannero Pargo too. Good scorers off the bench.

Curry is a better, and

Curry is a better, and definitely more willing, passer. You could say their shooting skills are about neck and neck. I consider myself to be a Ben Gordon hater but even I can admit that Gordon is better than Curry in everything but passing and maybe shooting. Gordon is more explosive, more athletic and much, much stronger.

I agree with Al-Farouq Aminu

Eric does have the most similar game to Ben.

2 me

The Jannero Pargo comparison is on point. I dont know about you but I wouldnt draft Jannero Pargo in the lottery lol...Stephen Curry isnt the defender that Pargo is though but they have the same traits and tendencies

I thing people will be

I thing people will be surprise about the athletic ability and basketball skills of Curry. Player that tend to be underrated tend to do better in the draft. I see Curry as a more efficient Arenas with better point guard skills. For those who don't believe me and think they Arenas is super athletic. Why do you think a great college scorer goes that late in the second round huh. Arenas has average athleticism but can shoot the lights and is very crafty and i see Curry being like that.
