      Dom2k a lot of truth in this but Steph never had a problem going to the warriors he was actually told he probably wouldn’t even be a first round pick in that years draft Steph is and always will be a humble person due to his struggles yes he has a killer instinct but all the greats do and everyone of them are humble just haven’t seen someone show both sides on the court like Steph does Kobe mj always showed there killer side on the court and off the court off the camera they showed a completely different side

    The Warriors tried to trade the 7th pick to the Suns for Amar'e Stoudemire? And who was the executive of the Suns at that time - well, it was none other than one Steve Kerr, who went on to coach Curry and the Warriors to 3 championships in 4 years. Fate has some weird sense of humour sometimes.

    Speaking of the Warriors, they technically didn't need a PG either - they've already had Monta Ellis at that position and he shunned the idea of him and Steph playing on court at the same time. Since that statement he was traded later to the Bucks for Andrew Bogut, then had average seasons in Dallas and Indiana, before the Pacers waived him in 2017.

    BTW Steph's agent refused his client to do workouts for anyone but the Knicks. Which to some degree explains Memphis, Sacramento and Minnesota's decision. But the T-Wolves could've just drafted DeMar DeRozan instead of Johnny Flynn, but IMO the curve that take players drafted before a bona-fide star is (a reccuring trope in the NBA that you're remembered as the guy drafted before X) would've most likely impacted DeRozan as well. Just look at the careers of some - Sam Bowie (drafted before Michael Jordan), Greg Oden (drafted before Kevin Durant) and Shabazz Muhammad
    (drafted before Giannis Antetokounmpo) - turned out to be.

    Had golden state just not picked Curry. the Knicks would have had him. Unfortunately though the warriors had the #6 pick and the Knicks had the #7 pick, golden state picked before New York. Just bad luck for the Knicks.
    Still though even after curry was already taken, they still had a chance to draft derozan and didn’t do it. The Knicks are fucking dumb.

    Nobody saw curry or harden being this good.
    Especially harden.. nobody knew harden was gonna dominate the way he did.
    Curry played for Davidson a shit school that got little recognition.

    Remember back in 09 the debate for rookie of the year was between tyrek evans and Brandon Jennings.
    Fast forward to years later neither one of those guys are relevant and it’s curry and harden being talked about.

    I want you....yes you reading this to close your eyes to your left is the black American to the right is the Chinese.
    Hold that thought....
    Black Americans have wide chests, big arms, overall big mother fuckers.
    On the right we have a tiny little Chinese that weighs 50 pounds but single handedly can shut down the streets.
    Where am I going with this.....
    Black Americans are big with small brain whereas the Chinese are tiny with big brain.
    Get it?....

    Curry would've been a great fit at OKC. Unlike Harden, he can play both on and off the ball. He could've been the main ball handler while Westbrook was on the bench and could've functioned as a spot up shooter with Russ on the court. The three of them together actually work unlike the Durant-Westbrook-Harden trio. It's not just about gathering the best available players. Successful front offices pick someone as the centerpiece and then fill the roster with players that complement the former's playstyle. With Kobe as the centerpiece of the '07 Lakers, they needed a star big man. That's why they traded for Pau. Imagine if they had somehow gotten Lebron instead. We'd have the two best players in the league on the same team but there's wouldn't be enough of the ball to go around. And other teams would definitely exploit that.

    To be fair the only team that struck out was the Kings. Curry's camp refused all work outs to teams other then the Kings and Knicks, His shooting was obvious but had a lot of question marks in most other departments. Also the fact Davidson didn't get a tourny bid in 09 tremendously hurt Curry's draft stock. Also if your old enough to have watched the 08 Olympics gold medal game live, you'd understand why Rubio was taken before Curry even though he refused to workout with Minnesota also.

    it's all about the right team drafting you and Golden State was the right team, just like it was for Klay Thompson & Draymond Green

    This narrative is so stupid at that point teams were making their best choices. For example if you knew the numbers to your local lottery u would choose it. No one knows how things would of played out. All your information was accumulated over time.
