Stephen Curry gets “salty” that some people don’t consider him, the #2 league leader in assists, a point guard.
“I get salty,” Curry said. “That’s the position I’ve envisioned myself playing since my junior year in college. I knew I was going to be able to make an impact in the NBA — whether they think I do it in the stereotypical way or whatever. In any situation, when anybody sees you in a different way than you see yourself, it’s frustrating.”
As frustrating as it may be for him, it’s can’t be as frustrating as trying to defend him. As LeBron said, he’s one of the greatest shooters ever. As many team doctors can tell you, he’s one of the best at breaking ankles. And as his teammates can tell you, he’s one of the best passers in the game and sometimes makes great passes when he doesn’t even mean to.
Just ask Bogut who told his hand all about it.
If Steph keeps up his production, he will become the first player since Tiny Archibald to finish in the top 5 five in scoring and assists. Now Nate somehow finished the 72-73 season leading the league in points and assists with averages of 34 points and 11.4 assists a game but I don’t think any Warriors fans are going to complain about Curry’s skills and production of 23 points and 9.6 assists a game.
“I still feel like I can get better,” said Curry, who said his best feeling as a basketball player is completing a long alley-oop because it requires a nearly perfect pass. “I haven’t mastered anything.”
He could have fooled me about the mastering thing but I wonder how he feels about a sweet behind the back pass.
