    Default Analyzing Curry's 2016 playoffs: What happened?

    I've been reading that some are attempting to mention that Curry was "injured" during the 2016 playoffs but the data suggests otherwise.

    Curry was actually playing close to Finals MVP level stats for his first 9 games back until he ran into the defensive anchor that is LeBron Raymone James.



    What does this say to you guys about Curry?

    wow look at that drop off between series, perhaps his injury just so happened to flare up again in the Finals after 30 days since his Portland return. but still that doesn't explain his other underwhelming Finals, unless random injury flared up during those Finals as well. very fascinating

    Maybe something similar happened to Kobe in the finals too

    They say extreme stress can manifest in physical discomfort

    Indeed, good sir. It makes you wonder. Does Curry just always have a magical injury flare up in the Finals over the last 5 years? Some Warriors fans might suggest so, but being pragmatic, high level thinkers, most know better...Curry disappears when his team needs him most. 29/6/7 on 50% to 22/4/4 on 40%. Yikes

    Curry and Kobe both suffer from Final-itis, this is why it took Kobe 8 tries to get his first Finals MVP and it has already taken beta Cuckry five tries. He is working on a sixth attempt so he could be 0 for 6.

    LeBron's ability to SHUT DOWN a 30 point, 50/40/90 Unanimous MVP to the tune of 22/4/4 on 40% is the true icing on the cake. LeBron's defensive efforts that series, leading ALL in steals and rebounds as well, clearly exemplifies goatness to a level we will never see again. LeBron led all in all, while reducing a 30 on 50/40/90 player to 22 on 40%. Astounding.

    Sadly without at least 3 superstars alongside Curry he won't be making another finals appearance. He's retiring on top with a staggering 4 pity FMVP votes, a record even he knows he can't match again

    Curry is one of the greatest scorers ever, and definitely the best shooter ever. I won't say he was injured in that Finals series. I can say he might have been nervous since in 2015 he did not get the Finals MVP and he wanted it so badly that it cost him everything again. I can't believe he dropped off that bady tho. 30 to 22. 50% fg to 40%. LeBron IS that man. Curry is top 10 all time though. Who else has a 30 point 50-40-90 season and Unanimous MVP and 3 rings and 2 MVPs and all the shooting records? His palms just get a little sweaty in the Finals but that's it really.

    Waiting on one Curry fan to admit that LBJ had him shook and locked him up to 22 on 40% shooting that year.

    Well there's two ways of looking at it

    If you want to look at it intelligently, here's a good breakdown of what occurred with Curry

    If you want the braindead version, well, thread speaks for itself there
