    Curry and Duncan briefly compared as the rock of their respective teams.

    Offense. Sure.

    Leadership. Maybe.

    Off the Court Stability: Maybe

    Defense....

    Longevity: Unlikely

    Success: 3 < 5

    Not a great comparison. Curry is more like the Wade of the Warriors. Won one before the super team, super team left, let's see what the team can do with him now

    Duncan - 3 FMVPs (should be 4-5)
    Curry - 0 FMVPs (should be 1)

    The comparison I always make is that they both caused offensive "gravity" - Duncan by sucking in the defense so they collapsed around him, and Curry by pulling the defense out to spread the floor. So their gravity is equal in magnitude but opposite in direction.

    Equal and opposite forces - just imagine if they had played together! Can anyone imagine a more hypothetically dominant duo?

    Was watching Durant-less Warriors game earlier. Any time the Warriors got down by 6 or more, they had to rely on Curry and Thompson chucking. That worked well enough in an apparently weak era. And then they got the needed supplemental help of Durant. But Curry in and of himself as a rock? No, not at all.

    Especially with Tim’s passing ability. Excellent observations.

    No real comparison in my mind. Curry is like a turbocharged Steve Nash or Dwyane Wade with insane shooting. The defense was anchored by Green and they won xtra championships because Durant is a schmuck. Let's see Curry anchor a team for twenty years.

    This is a notion birthed from spurgy NBA commentary Channels on youtube. Lol ESPN for getting your IDEAS from YouTubers.

    It is good and bad with these guys on the Tubes....


    One Spurg tried to say that Alvin Robertson was screwed by the SPURS when he was mistakingly jammed up on those child trafficking charges

    OBLIVIOUS to ALvins propensity to STALK and BEAT his x girlfriends to an inch of their lives despite restraining orders or that he went to PRISON for it( and I believed tried to escape lol) DECADES before the got jammed up with the child thing.

    Lets see...

    Curry needed the NBA to allow moving screens on every play so he could have open shots and the NBA would not allow a defender to breathe within 3 feet of Curry -

    Duncan was pretty much hacked on every play and the NBA allowed any scrub to get the benefit of the calls against Duncan even though Timmy was already proven and a champion - yet still any scrub would somehow get more calls when matched against Duncan.




    No comparison.

    Their 3 percentages are roughly the same. And Nash was actually better at his peak (47 3FG to 45.5 3FG). The more I look at it, the more I think Nash is frankly the better player. Curry could never create for teammates like Nash did.

    no doubt....but without Durbeta making the weakest decision in sports history, that question would never be asked

    This. While he’ll never be Timmy, this season will be a great litmus test for his “greatness”. I’ll be a believer if he can do some magic this season. Although his lack of defensive prowess is glaring

    He got his passive aggressive jab in. He's content. Don't expect any basketball talk.
