Stephen Curry had a tremendous year with the Golden State Warriors. Leading his team to the second round in the playoffs, Curry set a NBA record for most three pointers in a season with 272. Curry and the Warriors got eliminated by the Western Conference champions, the San Antonio Spurs.
Curry has improved over the years to become a better point guard. His points per game and his assists have made a jump from being drafted. Dell Curry, Stephen Curry’s dad, was a great 3 point shooter but wasn’t a better shooter than his son. Curry can light it up from anywhere on the court and is dangerous for any NBA defense. Curry deserve to be the number 5 spot because of his leadership at a young age to lead his team the the playoffs and competed every game they played.
