I think it’s safe to say at this point Steph Curry is America’s favorite player. Unless you’re a die hard fan of the OKC Thunder and Steph continually gives you night terrors, it is very, very hard to dislike him. We’re watching one of the best players of all time and I’m not even sure people realize it. He now holds the record for most games in a row with a 3, and most 3’s in a season, with tons of games to go. Oh, and he’s sat out 16 4th quarters this season. 16. Imagine if Golden State didn’t have 30 point leads every games.
This is a good way to put it- he’s legitimately breaking basketball.
No wonder the people who develop the video games are stumped…they don’t know how to program Steph.
Forbes - “To be completely honest, we are still looking for ways to better translate his game into NBA 2K,” says Wang. “He’s a ‘rule breaker’ when it comes to jump shooting … he becomes a problem in the video game world where we’ve been trying to train our gamers [to know] that certain types of shots should be rewarded versus others.”
The unrealness just doesn’t end….
538 - Curry has hit 45 percent with a defender between 2 and 4 feet away, 44 percent with a defender between 4 and 6 feet away, and 47 percent with the closest defender more than 6 feet away. Yes, that’s right, Curry shoots threes about as well with a defender 2 to 4 feet away (classified as “tight” by NBA.com) as an average NBA shooter does with the nearest defender 12 feet away.
and must-watch TV every night. And hopefully the reason LeBron never wins a title in Cleveland. Wouldn’t that be perfect?
