There’s no easy answer, of course, but the answer seems pretty clear: Curry.
Curry is, simply put, the best player on the planet, and he does it all in a single-game setting.
It’s a stunning accomplishment.
But it’s also an extraordinary story of the most incredible basketball player in the history of the sport.
It was not easy, and there’s plenty of reasons to be skeptical.
There’s a lot that we know about Curry, but we don’t know much about him.
What we do know is that Curry is the rarest and most exciting basketball player of the modern era.
It also has been difficult to figure out why Curry is so dominant.
The most obvious explanation is the sheer size of his body.
He’s 6’11” and 260 pounds, and at times his game is a mismatch.
Curry has never been one to just go down on his opponents and finish them with ease, but that has been the case for him.
He is an extremely mobile and athletic player, capable of bending the rules and playing to his strengths.
He can make the most of his length, and his speed makes him a threat in the paint and on the perimeter.
He has an uncanny knack for finishing.
For the past two years, Curry has averaged nearly 17 points, 9 rebounds, and 4 assists per game, shooting 60 percent on 3-pointers, and scoring nearly 27 points per game.
But Curry is also a tremendous passer, one of the NBA’s best scorers, and a master of all three elements.
He doesn’t play like a point guard, but rather like a small forward.
Curry can pass, drive, and shoot, and the combination of his physicality and his athleticism make him a lethal scorer.
The way he is able to do so has always been a marvel, but it’s only just beginning to become apparent.
Curry’s passing skills have been compared to Steph Curry, and for good reason.
Curry was the only player to average at least 22 points per 100 possessions with Curry as the primary scorer, and those numbers have been well above average for him all season.
In fact, Curry ranks first among all players in the NBA in assists per 100 attempts with Curry in the lineup.
He also leads the league in steals per 100, and assists per turnover ratio.
He averages nearly 13 assists per 48 minutes.
Curry doesn’t just pass; he drives.
Curry shot 45.4 percent on drives at the rim, and 37.8 percent on jumpers.
His 3-point shooting has been a massive improvement this season, as well.
He made 34.2 percent of his 3s this year, up from 34.0 percent a year ago.
Curry, however, also has a reputation for making the wrong decisions.
He hasn’t always done well on those drives, and some of his questionable decisions could be blamed on his inexperience as a passer.
Curry also has become one of basketball’s best players when he’s not in the midst of an epic scoring surge.
When he’s in the game, he’s almost unstoppable.
He shoots a career-best 41.4 3-points per game with Curry on the court, and has made an NBA-best 17.3 per game when he isn’t in the vicinity.
But what makes Curry so special is his ability to adapt to the pace of the game.
He uses his length to create open shots, and then moves quickly and effectively off the ball to create space for himself and teammates.
When Curry does go to the free throw line, he does so with great efficiency.
Curry does so well in transition that he has become a deadly finisher.
His free throws make up over 20 percent of Curry’s field goals made this year and he is one of only six players in NBA history to make an NBA Finals with a 50-plus free throw percentage.
Curry rarely gets into foul trouble, which has made him a valuable rim protector for the Warriors.
His rebounding prowess is unmatched, as he’s second in the league among all scorers in rebounds per game at 2.9 per game and has a steal percentage that is third in the entire league.
Curry plays with an unrivaled level of intensity.
His teammates have to step up when he is on the floor, and they do, which makes Curry such a threat to score when he has a chance.
Curry makes his teammates better when he goes to the line, which is why he leads the NBA with a plus-minus rating of +7.0.
He does not play like one of those flashy point guards, and instead, he is a masterful playmaker who uses his athleticism to create mismatches and make plays that create open looks for his teammates.
He will score you, he will make you pay, and it’s going to happen more often than you think.
Curry and his teammates have made a habit of going to the rim to score, and now that he is in the spotlight
