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 …
