This Week's Question: How Good will Stephen Curry Do in the NBA?


Recent "college" scoring stars.. the one's that actually made their names in the NCAA like Adam Morrison and JJ Redick have all disappointed in the pros. Even after averaging 25.9 ppg last year and leading his team to some big-time Tournament wins, Curry had more pro doubters than supporters.


His rap sheet goes like this: He's too short (listed at 6-3 but that's exaggerated). He's too skinny and frail (180 pounds). He's not fast enough to make up for his lack of size. He's not a point guard. If you're that small, you can only make it as a point guard, not a shooting guard. He won't be able to defend NBA 2-guards or point guards. His 3 pt % is good for college (about 42% for his career), but he'd need to be lights out from NBA range to cut it in the pros.


With all that said, as Curry has taken his game to another level this season, carrying the Wildcats on his back with a 31.3 ppg, 6.4 apg, and 3.0 spg, it seems like consensus is growing that Curry can cut it at the highest level.


The real question of course, is what to do you think? Post your comments below!
