AM I THE ONLY ONE WHO THINKS Stephen Curry IS OVERRATED?
After the Orland Magic humiliated themselves by picking a "Pure Shooter" in JJ Redick, i think it will be an utter mistake to take a 6'1 combo gaurd in Stephen Curry in the top 15 picks in the draft. I really dont see the potential, and his size is a true concern. If you look at his shoulders and body you can tell he wont be able to put on much weight, and if he does't he will loose his mobility just like big man Greg Monroe did.
what do you guys think?
I would not say that he is overrated. But overhyped yes! I feel that Stephen Curry provides a consistent deep threat for any team that drafts him. If a team drafts Curry and expects him to be their franchise savior they have another thing coming. Best case scenario I see Curry as a second scoring option in the NBA and there is nothing wrong with that. Even on some NBA teams he might even be a third scoring option. He does not provide that elite passing ability that we have seen in past and present top point guard prospects like Ricky Rubio, Derrick Rose and even John Wall. He has a shoot first mentality and does not provide too much else on the stat sheet. He will be a good pro but he must work on his overall point guard abilities. Passing, leadership and defense. On defense he is a big liabilty! I don't see him being able to guard any of the elite point men in the league. Deron Williams, Chris Paul, Derrick Rose and Rajon Rondo. He is not overrated, the man is overhyped...
stephen curry is not going to need to play defense, if he did it would be a situation like allen iverson on defense. where he would guard the teams worst offensive player. ai does not guard deron, paul, rose, or rondo, and curry would not either. in addition you guys are failing to mention the fact that he has pro pedigree. his dad was a baller and genetics mean something. the kid forgot how to miss a long time ago. he might get d'd up in the nba, it happened to him recently against kramer of purdue, but he is an exceptional defensive player. curry will score in the nba, don't worry about it.
Whoever drafts him has to understand that he cannot replicate anything close to what he is doing at Davidson. He can't play the point (the only reason he is accumulating all these assists is because he is drawing double-team after double-team), can't defend, and will only be able to do one thing at an NBA-caliber level--shoot. There are plenty of examples of outstanding college shooters who don't do a thing in the pros--there is no reason to think that Curry can succeed at the level to warrant such a high pick. He struggles against lanky and athletic defenders, and he's going to see plenty of that at the next level. Best case scenario, Curry is a solid sixth-man.
You both are right Stephen Curry will not jave to guard a teams huge threat and NBA teams do understand that. I really like the comment about the pedigree that he has. Yes the man did forget to miss before he knew what it was. I do see him in a situation similar to Allen Iverson. He is not asked to guard as much and he will have someone behind him just in case he gets beat off the dribble. I also believe that he will develop the (point guard to shooting guard exchange skill) ability that so many NBA players, like Lebron James, have learned. How many times have you seen a player like James or Iverson steal a pass and head down court for the easy duece? It happens all the time. Hey Lebron comes to enough of Stephen Curry's games I don't think that he will have any problems adding this to his already deadly offensive arsenal....
he can shoot off the dribble
and he can shoot with a lil contact
hes nuffin like reddick
in the team that drafts him
well make him a ole players
or put him in asystemn
were he can really cause
pacers if the pacers draft him they a play small ball
but it would free up granger
tj ford could penatrate more
cuzz it had to b sombody on curry
at all times
he can really light it up
i dont think its hype
he brung a taem nobody looked at
to national attention
and on the next level he will good
idk about great but i know he will start eventually
I completely agree that Curry is overrated. Sure, he scores 30 a game, but the guy takes an extraordinary amount of shots and shoots a very low percentage. He is very, very unefficient. I believe the guy went 5-26 in his last game. I'm kind of sick of all the undeserved publicity he gets. I'm especially bitter since this weekend the Davidson/Purdue blowout was the CBS nationally televised game over Gonzaga vs. my UConn Huskies.
how are we even arguing this? did all of you not watch his last game? against bigger more athletic players,he stands no chance! How can anyone even put Lebron james or allen iverson in the same sentence as Stephen curry. though iverson is a liability on defense, his ability to score at will is something special, and stephen curry does not have the killer instinct to drive to the hoop that iverson has. i'm not even going to discuss lebron because its just disprespectful to put lebron james and stephen curry in the same sentence. i'm not even going to talk about that because those 2 were light years ahead of him at 21. As for his pedigree, i don't think its as big of a deal as you guys are making it out to be. or shall we discuss the greatest player to ever lives son, Jeffrey Jordan? The man is a 6'1 2-guard. if he is a lottery pick i will puke!
Jordan Hill from Arizona has no offensive game what so ever. He's 6'10 with no low post moves, an inconsistent mid-range jumper, he's gets out of control when he dribbles, and he's clumsly catching the ball, yet this guy is being mentioned as a top 10 pick for the 2009 NBA Draft, I don't get it. Why would a team waste a high pick on someone that is just gonna be a role player and not a star or a featured player? All Jordan Hill is gonna be is a energy player in the league, like Ronny Turiaf.
I don't even think Curry's best attribute is his perimeter shooting. He uses angles and screens extremely well and just knows how to play the game. He's shown he can play both the 1 and the 2 on the college level.
Curry does more with less. He does not have elite point guard skills but he has enough to play the position in the nba over player like beno udrih..lol He is a good passer with arguably one of the best strokes ever.. he takes and make big shots time after time.
And on Jordan Hill yeah he is very overrated to say the least..
He definitely needs to be in the right situation to succeed. Preferably a bigger guard to handle the ball like Brandon Roy so he can play off it more. He won't be a saviour but he could definitely be a solid piece for any team. But I don't think he's worth a top 5 pick.
i in no way think curry is overrated. he is definately one of the best guards in the country. people look at his shooting percentages and say oh he in unefficent and only looks for himself. LOOK AT HIS TEAM!!!!! he plays for davidson and is asked to win games single handedly almost every night. if he didnt put up all those shots theres no way they are beating these BCS teams. so yeah he takes alot of shots but he has to. i dont think he is a pure point because he has never had to play one throughout his career. when he got to davidson he was lucky enough to have jason richards who was one of the best points in the country so steph could just come off screens and put it up. now he is bringing it down passing it off getting it right back and everybody else just stands and watches.
i dont think he will be as great a pro as everybody thinks though. he will be solid but not great. he is the next eddie house or steve blake in my eyes
I am against everyone on the jordan hill issue. today when you look for a player, you look for potential. Jordan hill shows more potential in the power forward position than any other power faward who will probably opt out this year, EXCEPT FOR BLAKE GRIFFIN. when you watch him play you can see him developing into a pretty good player. unlike tyrus thomas, jordan hill has a pretty decent jump shot, inconsistent yes, but he has the tools to develop a great mid range game like amare. also, he is very athletic, perfect size for a pf, and has improved a lot each year! This is what you look for in a player. i think he will end up as a top 10 pick, if tyrus can be a top 5, why cant jordan hill?
Stephen Curry is just a another JJ Redick I woudn't take him even if i didn't have a point guard on my team.
Teammates Malik Hairston and Maarty Luenen unexpectedly heard their names called but Taylor didn’t.

Siirler Hikayeler Fikralar Programlar Guzel Sozler Resimler freetemplates Taylor was arguably Oregon’s best player last season, but his 6-foot-4 frame makes him a undersized at the next level. Nonetheless, his scoring ability, length and athleticism give him a chance to make in in the league.
some of the people were wayyyyyyyyyyyy off
look at the other one about favors...its even more fyunny how some of ya'll thought i was crazy and were off with some of the predictions
Another JJ Reddick, who someone wouldnt even take if they didnt have a point guard. 14.4 ppg 4.7 apg 1.8 spg .45% fg 42%3pt 87% ft. LOL
