Warriors belong to Stephen CurryPosted by Inside Hoops
Rusty Simmons of the San Francisco Chronicle reports:
The Warriors are Stephen Curry’s team, and general manager Larry Riley will consider who best fits with the point guard when choosing a draft pick Thursday.
“It’s obvious and true that Curry is a guy who is going to have the ball in his hands a lot, and we’re going to play right through him a great deal,” Riley said. “He’s the point guard of this team, and Monta (Ellis) plays the two, and that’s the direction we’re going.
“You don’t build your team around a two-guard. You build around a point guard.”
Curry had a historic rookie season, averaging 17.5 points, 4.5 rebounds, 5.9 assists and 1.9 steals per game. He is the only rookie in NBA history to shoot at least 45 percent from the field, 40 percent from three-point range and 85 percent from the free-throw line.
