Sports Unbiased Staff G.F.R. Analysis
Keith Rivas – Many might think that it’s crazy not to put Steph Curry at number one after winning the league MVP and the Larry O’Brien trophy last season, but he’s not the top point guard — sorry. Considering all of the offensive and defensive help that Curry got in the playoffs there’s no telling how a solely-Curry run team would fare against the Western Conference. Heck, or even just against the New Orleans Pelicans. As his game continues to develop, I’m sure he’ll reach the top spot across the board, but until then we will have to wait to see what he’s got cooking for us next.
Ben Buchanan – MVP, Champion, what else can you say? Steph was absolutely cooking all of last season. He’s arguably the best shooter EVER! Curry put up an insane 23.8 PPG on only 32 minutes per game; if he had been playing the whole game that number would be marginally higher. Curry shot 44 percent from three last year, and hit 3.6 threes a game. He led the champion Golden State Warriors throughout the regular season and the playoffs. Curry is an overall nightmare for defenders to go up against, and that is why he get’s the #1 spot.
Steve Turner – Stephen Curry is the best point guard in the NBA right now. The MVP of the league did something miraculous this season and a lot of people won’t forget about it anytime soon. The Warriors won a championship with him running the point and he pretty much was the leader the whole time. He’s established himself as one of the best shooters ever and has such a creative way of delivering the ball to this fellow teammates. Hard to argue that Steph Curry isn’t the best point guard in the NBA.
Sauping R. Arguello – Curry is a prime example that hard work does pay off. He is not the fastest, strongest, most athletic player but he is one of the most skilled at his craft. Curry is by far, the best shooter of his class with unlimited range and a quick textbook-form release. His dribble and passing skills are often overlooked because of how great a shooter he is but now that he is the reigning MVP and champion, those days may be over. I only expect Curry to keep improving and adding more facets to his arsenal.
