Everyone knows who Stephen Curry is. Everyone knows Stephen Curry’s game. Stephen Curry is widely recognized as the NBA’s best three-point shooter.(Rocky Widner/NBAE/Getty Images) Does his game have room to grow? The 25-year-old point guard out of Davidson is already widely considered the best shooter in the current NBA, if not in NBA history. It’s not only the way he shoots while standing still, what makes Curry truly remarkable is the way he can run off screens, catch and shoot, or dribble into his shot and yet no matter how he creates his shot, the result seems to always be the same: bottoms. His three-point shooting is truly incredible. He shot an astounding 44.6% from beyond the arc while making a record-setting 272 threes a season ago. Curry is also one of the best free throw shooters in the league. For his career, Curry shoots 90.1% from the charity stripe and shot 90.0% from that spot last season. In about 38 minutes per game, Curry averaged 4.0 rebounds and 6.9 assists. Although his rebounds aren’t off the charts, he rebounds the ball very well for a point guard, and with his assists hovering around seven per game, there doesn’t seem to be a ton of improvement to be had in this category. Curry averaged almost two steals per game last season, and although not an eye-popping stat, for a guy his size with his athleticism, that number is not bad by any means. It’s not that Curry is a perfect player. The closest their is to a perfect player in today’s league is LeBron James, and Curry is no James. However, Curry is not 6 foot 8, 240. He’s only 6 foot 3, 185. You can’t teach growth or athleticism, and although Curry is not unathletic, he doesn’t possess the explosive athleticism that guys like Derrick Rose and Russell Westbrook have, making it easier for these guys to improve their games because their athleticism is so outstanding and allows them to make huge plays. For Curry, he’s already the best shooter in the league, he’s a very good passer, a good rebounder for his position, and he is about as disruptive on defense as he can be for a guy with his athleticism. Maybe Curry isn’t going to decline anytime in the next three or so years as long as he stays healthy, but maybe it is unrealistic to expect the young guard to improve his game very drastically over the same period of time.
