I'm going to pull a Coooach here and toot my own analysis horn on Curry. I think I've missed maybe three Warriors games this season. Curry didn't need to have this kind of game to convince me of his dominance. Curry didn't need to have this kind of game to convince me that he was/will be a special point guard. JUST WATCH THE GAMES, NOT THE BOX SCORES!!!
Curry's court awareness has been superb from the begining. He had a lot of turnovers because he was a ROOKIE PG!!! Of course he is going to have a lot of turnovers. The speed of the game alone is going to cause this to happen to a rookie PG, regardless of his talent level.
Curry is very quick, has amazing court awareness and over the top hand-eye coordination. He footwork is veteren like, and he already has the confidence needed to make him a top level player.
I've been saying, in multiple posts and in multiple ways, that us getting the #1 draft pick will be problematic. John Wall would need to pan out as a 2 guard, which I think he can, but he really isn't needed since we already have a sure thing at PG. It isn't worth trading Curry if we win the John Wall lottery. We'd be better off trading the pick.
btw we shouldn't trade for Chris Paul for the same reason. I think Chris Paul is awesome, but Curry IS all we need at PG. I'll give you that he's not as good as Chris Paul yet, but he certainly looks like he'll be as good. Curry's game looks more like Nash's than Paul's but excellent none the less.
btw I've seen a fair amount of anti-Tolliver talk on these forums. Dissing Tolliver because he's a D-Leaguer. Have you actually watched him play? He's a big, tough, athletic player who fights for rebounds and takes good shots. He's also a very good passer both on the perimeter and in the paint. He changes the dynamic of the team completely when he is out there. Right now, I'll say it, he makes a better PF than AR when AR is healthy. He knows where to be on the court and he makes the best of his time. Pairing Tolliver with Turiaf, or Beans, makes for a very good combo, and it has for several games. Tolliver is beefy as well. He looks like he could snap AR in half.
I'm not directing this entire rant at you Migya. I agree with your posts more often than anyone else's on this board. You definetly understand what makes a team good or bad. BUT there is too much judgment made on boxscores here and not enough made on actually watching the players play.
