NBA Comparison: Chris Lofton

Strengths: Like his brother Stephen and father Dell, Seth is a lights-out shooter. In his senior year, Curry shot a scorching 44% from deep on 6.2 3-point attempts per game, easily making him one of the most prolific shooters at the college level ... Improved his shot off the dribble and ability to move without the ball a great deal while at Duke ... Shows a great mid range game and improved his field goal percentage tremendously from his junior to senior year, 42% and 46.5% respectively ... A crafty player that has many jab step, pump fake, and hesitation moves in his arsenal to get open and score ... Shows a winning attitude and intangibles to overcome the odds, and possibly make it as an undersized NBA prospect ... Being related to the best shooter in the league never hurt anyone. Being a Curry should help push him over the top if teams are torn between Curry and another player in the 2nd round ...

Weaknesses: At 6'1 and only 180 pounds without length; Curry does not have the size or athleticism necessary for the NBA SG position ... What will really hurt Curry at the next level is his lack of point guard skills/instincts ... At his size, it's essential that Curry be able to handle the PG position, at least in spot duty. Which to this point he has been unable to show ... His lack of strength and athleticism will make him a liability on defense guarding 1s and particularly 2s ... He does not have great foot speed or quickness. Before Quinn Cook’s emergence at Duke this year, Curry was forced to play point during the 2011-2012 season. It was a good learning experience, but it also exposed Curry's deficiencies ... Despite dominating the ball, Curry only averaged 2.4 assists per game with a 1.1-1 assist to turnover ratio ... Curry will also not be able to get to the line as much as he did in his college career without adding a lot of strength. His lack of size, strength and athleticism limits his ability to finish at the rim ...

Notes: Seth is missing the size, speed and PG attributes that have made Stephen such an effective NBA player, and makes his ability to carve out a role in the league debatable ...
