I've seen a lot of "Steph Curry is the greatest shooter ever" threads and tweets lately. Usually those are the types of discussions you have AFTER a guy has played 10+ years, not after ~200 games.

I doubt Curry will even be able to play big minutes 10 years from now. He's a PG and that position will take a toll on his body since he'll be trying to run the team. His age will make him a liability and as a result he won't be playing as much which will lower his 3pt attempts.

This. I'm not even sure he'll reach 15 years playing... but he's an elite shooter nonetheless.

I'm a Ray Guy (heh heh, that one never gets old), but there is one player in my lifetime who I think I'd take over him and who everyone always forgets, since his career was tragically cut short as he was hitting his prime. If Drazen Petrovic got an open look, and the ball did not go in, I was stunned.

Ray always hurt his percentages in his prime - the Seattle years especially - by taking ridiculously high degree of difficulty threes all the time. He'd fade over double teams, shoot when curling off a screen without squaring, pull up from 28 feet on a secondary break, etc. Although Curry does the same sort of things, too.

By what measure?

Curry's the second leading shooter in percentage and volume this season. He's only 4 behind Ryan Anderson and the most accurate of the volume shooter guys. Bonner has a higher percentage but shoots about a fifth of what Curry does.

Korver has a lower percentage on a third less makes. Curry also blows him away on career percentages.

I agree.

Strangely enough I don't like or appreciate Curry's game at all... :oops:

I could watch him shoot it all day, in fact i think he has the nicest looking stroke ever besides jesus shuttlesworth. So what do you guys think? Barring injuries can this guy make it into that conversation? I think he could pass reggie millers makes but depending on how much longer ray ray plays that record might be hard to beat.



In 15 years from now you feel.....? :o :D
Let 5 years pass and then we can have some "data" to talk.

You all seem to forget the incredible Steve. Steve Kerr. OK ok he wasn't a starter and his weapon was mainly the 3s, but we are talking about ability to shoot so his unbelievable 3 years of having more than 50% at the 3 point area with a very very good amount of shots attempted and the overall 45.4%(!!!!), is something that shouldn't go unnoticed. He was the most consistent shooter i have seen, although not with a big repertoire. :D But it doesn't matter, personal ability to create own shoots etc, is irrelevant in this conversation as we are talking about the best shooter.
And Kerr with 5 rings(kinda irrelevant), with clutch championship winning shots and 45.4% at the 3pt line in the end, is a very good case.

Kerr, as good as he was, had a few years with the shortened 3 point line. If you take those years away, then Curry's current career average exceeds his. Curry also takes many more per game than Kerr did. If you qualify and normalize the stats, Curry's on pace to be the greatest long range bomber. Even more impressive is that most of his shots are unassisted.

And unlike many 3 point specialist Curry shoots a significant percentage of his bombs off the dribble. :o

He's not just a catch and shoot guy like Korver/Novak/Bonner.

How come? The kid just exudes talent from every pore. He's a natural with one of if not the most polished, complete games in the league. It's like watching poetry.

Speaking of 3pt shooting, does anyone think the 12 3s in a game record will be broken? Is Curry the most likely to break it?

Is it just me, or did Steph's father - Dell Curry - not get mentioned at all in this thread as being one of the best shooters of all time.
