    Mark Jackson, who coached Curry, thought Harden should have been MVP over Curry, and has lamented his style of plays exploding in popularity.

  • Jeff Wagner

    Could say that Harden in process of revolution of game with drawing fouls; free throws are big when it comes to true shooting percentage, and getting opponents in foul trouble.

    Amazing took the NBA so freaking long to use analytics to show the value of the three point shot. Barkley dismissed the Warriors for their long distance shooting. Curry may have never reached his potential if he played for a team that restrained his slot selection (see report saying that out of control and relies too much on outside shot).

  • Jeff Wagner
    Jeff Wagner 5 hours ago

    Curry does not shoot a jump shot; he gets that accuracy from using a set shot. That allows him to fire from distance by using his legs, rising as he lets go of the ball, not shooting while elevated. That also makes his release quicker. And he makes space to avoid getting the shot blocked. It also allows him to use the same shooting form from half court and beyond, something no jump shooter could emulate.

    Well the Kings passed on Curry because Evans more physically impressive in workouts (and to be fair he was rookie of the year). Also, passed on Klay Thompson forJimmy Ferdete (sp?);and Joe Klein over Mullen. Warriors owe a lot to the Kings. And just last year Kings passed on Donjic, and still believe Bagley better pick because better fit....that is why have not made playoffs in over a decade.if you are a team so poor cannot make the playoff s, you draft the best player, not the best fit.

    Don’t need a video to tell you that no one really knows how good a player will be when they get drafted. No one and I mean no one saw Curry being as good as he ended up being. If you claim that you did, you’re a liar.

    That's not true...the thunder were running ppl out the gym with harden coming off the bench...he was killing the 2nd unit....what killed that team was ownership...they didn't give that team enough time....nor did they want to pay Harden....Harden wanted a max contract and the thunder didn't want to pay because they didnt think he was worth it coming of the bench and on top of that they had Serge to deal with with. Hence the trade to Houston which gave him the chance to open his game into the player he is now....

    hardens main move: double triple step back travel, shoots three kicking forward then gets the call if not will not stop barking at the ref, then drive locks in the defenders arm then gets the foul and if not barking on the refs again, and what does his team mates do? watch him all night doing this, so most of them cant be involve on the offensw hes lazy to go back on defence cause they are not involve in the game, thats why people hates him

    Blake Griffin really should be considered for MVP this year. At minimum deserves to be an All-NBA player.

    Also, I think anyone that has an injury end someone's career should not be labeled a bust, not fair to them.

    I can't believe you guys missed the most important part of this story of the draft. The Phoenix Suns had a trade worked out for Amare Stoudemire and the draft rights to Stephen Curry. Stephen was the replacement for Steve Nash. Then...they screwed the suns out of the deal. The suns drafted someone else based on the handshake deal they had with GS. Phx drafted Earl Clark instead. www.charlotteobserver.com/sports/nba/charlotte-hornets/article157558864.html

As Michael Jordan would say, players are paid on potential now, they are not payed on what they have accomplished in the pros, because we all know college and the pros are much different for basketball/football/whatever.

    As a long time blazers fan, this is nothing. We passed on Kevin Durant and took Greg oden who never did a thing but get hurt, show his wee wee, and drink alcohol. Booooooo. And we can go one further...we passed up Michael freakin Jordan !!! for a lil known player-mr Sam bowie. Not only the lesser talent but to make it even worse if that’s possible, he had some type of brittle bone syndrome too. Broke his leg multiple times just running up and down the court. 😐☹️😐☹️ Poor man. People talk about the clippers curse! Ha! I laugh in the face of their so called “curse.” If you have a strong stomach I dare you to look into the history with the blazers. Now that’s a mans curse we’ve had right there yo. 😂😐☹️ were bout to finally shake it off this season though so that’s pretty sweet time to be a blazer fan compared to the multiple train wreck bad lucks seasons we’ve had from franchise start and our 76-77 championship we’ve had a 42 year long bad luck streak we are THRILLED to be getting rid of. Lol. Maybe Paul Allen went to heaven and put in a special request for his blazers. Would be fitting for a man who was dedicated to his blazers and Seahawks a majority of his life rip Paul Allen 🙏🏻❤️
