Default Steve Kerr: "A player from ANY ERA would be unable to guard Steph Curry"

This includes MJ, Scottie, Glove, NAME IT. Steve Kerr played with many great defensive players so he knows what he's talking about.

CURRY FAM STAYS WINNING

Quote:
"A player from any era would be unable to guard Steph Curry. It doesn't matter who you're talking about. No one could guard Steph Curry," Kerr said. "He's too quick, too skilled, too good. You can make all sorts of other arguments. In the '90s, there were all type of dominant big men. There aren't many these days, that's true. The game was different then. ... There's more ball movement, there's more liked-sized players on the court. So things change, but I just can't see how anybody would think that Steph would have been guardable 30 years ago, 20 years ago, whatever."

So Curry would be too quick for Payton, Moncrief or Jordan?

Glove could do it, and prime Kobe and Jordan could do it for sure.

How come Kawhi can't guard Curry? Too slow footed?

Tony Allen could even with their illegal screens

Hes far more athletic, has a higher IQ, far better footwork/footspeed, tenacity, strength, will get up on u, chase around 3pt line, can recover insanely to contest a shot or back into paint etc.

Kawhi doesn't have elite speed or lateral movement, his greatest strength is jumping ability and his IQ. Jordan on the other hand had incredible lateral speed and reaction time.

Of course Kerr is going to have his current players back. Numb nut stans caught up in the moment. Curry wouldn't be this difficult to defend on a team not built perfectly to maximize his abilities and minimize his faults.

I agree. Hell, I've seen Rose do a decent job on him multiple times. Prime Hinrich could probably frustrate him pretty well too. I've seen him do it many times to prime Kobe and Wade.

I mean if Delladova could for a couple games in the Finals, why couldn't anyone else?

Even Starks or Dumars. But definitely Glove, MJ, Pippen, prime Kobe, Robertson, Tony Allen has done it. Players small enough, quick footed and long enough to disrupt him. Most SFs are just too slow footed.

You are correct sir. Laterally he's way too slow. Glove, Mike, Scottie, Robertson, Dumars, Starks and even Stockton were way faster in that regard. Which is more a necessity in negating dribble penetration.

Curry's additional strength this season. So he can shed some defenders with his upper body. Which also improved his range even more. His even better ball handling. Along with Klay's improvement and jump shooting ability. Green's improvement and the pick / roll game, along with the Warriors offensive spacing make Curry individually THIS season in particular ... coupled with the current rule set, impossible to guard.

People misunderstand Kerr. He's talking about Curry as an offensive force. You could double him (like the Cavs did). That gravity he creates from 20 to 27 feet is only similar to the gravity a prime Shaq drew in the lane. There is no one that could stop him because his shot release is far too quick. Y'all crazy if u think Curry couldn't average 37+ if he was a chucker. He is averaging 30 while being the ultimate team player.
