Which team would give Steph Curry the best chance to succeed in the NBA?
Right now it looks like anyone can put up big numbers for the Thunder. He would get tons of playing time there.
I know the question is WHERE WOULD HE PLAY BEST, but aren't the Thunder planning on drafting Blake Griffin?? The Thunder will have it made for the future if Westbrook learns how to pass.
Westbrook, Durant, Griffin
Roy, Aldridge, Oden
Ellis, Holiday, Biedrins
No question he should be drafted by the Warriors. Fits right in! THINK ABOUT IT. Curry is a below average defender. Warriors are a below average defending team. Curry is a shooter and an offensive powerhouse. Don Nelson's gameplan is 100% Offense 0% Defense.
what do roy, aldridge, oden, ellis, and biedrins have to do with the thunder?
Any offensive team like New York and Golden State, Also like Orlando especially if they get rid of Reddick think he could slip some time at point and play a little 2 for about 5 minutes a game. Shooting is so valuable in the league so wherever he goes he will be ok. Phoenix needs some shooting as well playing with Nash would be good for him. I just think he needs to play with some pretty decent talent. I don't think you can look at him to be a savior. Love to see him in Memphis just for selfish reasons.
5 minutes a game? thats pathetic.. im telling you guys curry is going to be a BEEEEAST in the nba.. just watch..
i can see him doing good in the atlanta hawks system.. have him playing back up minutes or what not to bibby until he retires, and he jumps into action.
I see him being successful, what I meant by five minutes was the time he spends at the two playing along side Jameer Nelson. It would be kind of hard to play those giys together for much longer than that.He would get the rest of his minutes splitting time with Nelson. The way you're saying he should play with Bibby is the same way he should play with Orlando except play some off the ball.Atlanta would be a good fit because they have the guy he plays a lot alike getting long in the tooth and could mentor him. In fact that is a real good fit for him because him and Acie Law could play together on the second unit some.
Chicago is probably gonna lose BGorden this year and they need to add a scorer...Curry will flourish playing alongside a bigger, althletic point like Rose so he can defend 1's and play more off the ball, sorta like AI and Snow in Philly when they went to the finals and had there most success, I can see the Bulls missing the playoffs and taking him 10-15
A team with a run and gun fast break team. Phoenix, GSW, New York, Cleveland, but they have enough shooters, I think with Terry getting old, Dallas would be a nice fit, he reminds me a lot of Jet Terry anyway. Toronto would be a decent fit. He could really go to a lot of teams.
Where he can play off the ball while defending point guards. Both Atlanta and Portland look like good fits but Portland has Jerryd Bayless so I think it would be Atlanta.
I honestly don't see Curry fitting well into the warriors rotation only because there is barely enough shots to go around as it is and he needs to take at least 15 shots to have an effective scoring night. I would say he could play with the Knicks, but I think the scoring load would be too much for him to handle there. I think he would fit in perfectly with the Cleveland Cav's due to the fact that Lebron is always driving and dishing and he could spot up all over the court kind of the same concept as Boobie Gibson expect Curry is better. Furthermore, he would be the 3rd maybe even 4th option behind Lebron, Z, and Mo Williams and wouldn't have too much pressure on him to score. It can be compared to Ray Allen in Boston he just spots up on the 3 line and drains shots.
Cavs entire roster is shooters besides James.
Zydrunas is a shooting big man, D-west, mo will, wally, gibson, so I mean they have plenty of shooters, I think they need another defensive perimeter player like eric snow was, someone like patrick mills or jermey Pargo.
I really liken his impact in the NBA to Daniel Gibson, so going to the Cavs or Blazers where he can come in in late game situations, play the two guard alongside a point forward (LeBron, Brandon Roy) on offense, and guard the opponent's point guard on defense. I know Bayless may be the guy that fills this role in Portland eventually, but Roy could just as easily play the 3 on defense and have Curry and Bayless defend the opposing 1 and 2. That's an attack that would be crazy difficult to stop in the clutch. So I guess what I'm trying to say is that any team with a point forward would be the ideal fit for Dell's kid.
I think he would do fine with the Knicks. Curry won't have to come into the NBA and shoot as much as he is in college, where he's basically carrying his whole team. Curry would be a nice fit to the SSOL system in NYC, because Chris Duhon's numbers have gone way up this past year. I think he wouldn't be a good fit for Chicago if they lose Ben Gordon. Curry needs to play PG in the NBA. He's not athletic or strong enough to guard 2-guards night in and night out. He would be playing behind Derrick Rose for the next few years. He shouldn't go the Magic, just look at J.J. Reddick.
This wont happen but he would be great for the spurs, hes a very fundamental basketball player in terms of his skills as are the rest of the spurs, and they do not have a solid back up point guard and the point guard that they do have is not a shooter. With parker tearing up opposing defenders off the dribble and curry doing it from behind the line and through screens, the spurs would be much tougher to guard everywhere. With emergence of Roger Mason and Matt Bonner as legitiment deep threats, and bruce bowen being automatic from the corner and manu shooting well, defenses are having to expand on the spurs giving way to their bread and butter, Duncan. You add a shooter as the back up point would be impossible to guard. Curry at point, Manu 2, Mason 3, Bonner 4, and Duncan 5 would be too much. With Pop' running the pracrices you can put your money on the Spurs running impeccable offense, and part of a good offense is setting good screens which is where curry can really hurt you. Parker, Curry, Manu, Thomas, and Duncan could be devastating offensively, Curry's frailty would be nullified by the screens he would be getting from duncan and thomas (or bonner or oberto), not to mention as the 3rd best guard in that line up he wouldnt be getting the other teams best defender either.
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.
fit in pretty well with the warriors
Horrible situation in GS.. He's just going to pick up bad defensive and offensive habits.
ood players dont just pick up bad habits because of there surroundings. they still work hard to get better. i think thats what hes gonna do as well..
the comparison of Curry with Mike Bibby is spot on....
