It’s Stephen Curry’s Game Now
Stephen Curry’s has once again been named MVP of the NBA for the second straight season. This is amazing how Curry keeps on dominating the NBA. It seems like every game Curry plays he scores 30 to 40 points. Defenses don’t like to play against Curry, because of his abilities to divide the defenses and, get to any spot on the basketball court and score.
If you have somehow missed watching the Golden State Warriors this season, you might have a quaint notion of how basketball is played. It may be hard to believe, for instance, that 3-point shots are difficult, or that the players should generally avoid hoisting jumpers 35 feet from the basket. None of these things are true anymore, thanks to one player and his name is Stephen Curry. Stephen Curry is a butterfly with a jump shot that is changing how the game is being played.
“In recent days, Curry has broken the league record for 3-pointers in a season, which he did for the first time three seasons ago and the Warriors (53-5). Curry has made 288 3-pointers this season, eclipsing the 286 he made last season” (nytimes.com).
“Basketball has had other captivating stars like Magic Johnson, Michael Jordan, and LeBron James, who all streaked to lasting fame. But the Curry phenomenon is different because of his size. Curry is a sinewy 6 feet 3 inches, 190 pounds, and because of the way in which he dominates games by scoring far from the basket, somehow stretching the court beyond it’s conceivable limits” (nytimes.com).
It seems like Curry will go down as one of the greatest shooters, and greatest players in NBA history. I expect Curry to keep on keeping on. If the scouts don’t figure out how to stop Curry on the court, Curry will set and break records.
