What is the ceiling for this guy? The numbers he put up in January are just amazing. 19.1 points, 5.1 assists, and 4.4 boards while shooting .480 FG % , with .486 3PT % on 74 attempts, and shooting 89.2 FT %j, with 2 steals a game. When I saw him in college I didn't think he looked athletic enough to be really good in the pros but when I watch him in the pros now I'm just amazed he doesn't look physically inferior at all and he looks very quick.
You can expect those number forever except the 2 steals a game and the boards. The steals wouldn't be that high if the tempo wasn't so high and the boards would go down a bit for the same reason. I didn't think he would be that good either but once again i was wrong.
Oh yeah David Thorpe from ESPN wrote something that blew me away about him. He said Curry will probably hit more threes than any player this decade.
I think with Curry it all depends on his situation. I can see him averaging 20-25ppg if he needs to, however if he isn't required to score he will be a 17-18ppg guy with 8-10 assists. His passing ability and court vision is amazing, so i feel he has the ability to do what is required of him for his team to win.
I'm not sure if he could average those assists but he is a good passer. I think for his career he will average around 6 apg and maybe have 1 or 2 years were he averages around 8 apg.
Yeah, 17 and 6 over his career is very plausible and solid for Curry.
I'll throw in a season or two where he averages 20+ as well
he can average 10 apg cause in college all he was doing is scoring... and everybody think that he is just scorer.... give him 2-3 years a bet he can be 20 - 8 - 4 - 2 player
I disagree with the fact that he won't be able to avg 2stl a game. He plays the passing lanes very well and has good instincts much like Iverson. I'm not comparing the two, just sayin'.
