Revisiting Stephen Curry & The Warriors in the 2009 Summer League

Remember when Steph Curry was the 5th guard picked in the 2009 NBA Draft? When the Timberwolves had the 5th and 6th pick and drafted two point guards not named Curry, who led the nation in scoring as a junior?

A month after that day, Curry made his summer league debut for the Warriors. Other guys on the team included Jermareo Davidson, Anthony Morrow, Anthony Randolph and Jamal Sampson. After 5 games, Curry finished with averages of 17.4 points, 4.6 rebounds, 4.2 assists and 2.4 steals. Impressive, but believe it or not, the top 2 scorers in the Summer League that summer were teammates Anthony Randolph and Anthony Morrow, who averaged 27 and 25 points per game.

As for those other guards picked ahead of Curry, Rubio didn’t play in the league, Jonny Flynn was 3rd in assists (7.4) and Tyreke Evans averaged just as many assists as Curry, while putting up 2 more points.
