Curry fans get humiliated on ISH the same way Curry does on the big stage

Just not fair

Curry's not better than Bran. He's not better than Kobe, either. His 'intangible pull' is cool and it's good to take that into account, but his ability to carry a team isn't the same as those others. It's easy to be organic within a system that has other options. It's like... Duncan on SA.

We'll see this year, maybe I'm wrong. I'm sure Curry will put up big numbers, but to me he's too inconsistent. Not in terms of shot making but in terms of carrying teams. Kobe played on some really, really ass teams.

As for KD, I mean, would he have come to GSW had he thought Curry was a threat to take his FMVPs? I dunno. So it goes both ways.

Those Warriors teams would beat any team in history over those 4 years. It didn't matter what help was there.

LOL @ calling Bosh elite.

He made All-NBA second team once in Toronto and lead the Raps to 3 playoff game wins in 7 seasons.

He took a team with Klay Thompson, Harrison Barnes, and Draymond Green and turned it into one of the greatest offenses of all time

Let that sink in for a moment

LeBron tried. He shipped out a dozen players by the trading deadline every year.

If Curry wanted to be an empty negative impact statpadder he would be 3/9 but instead he wants to get his team involved in a 5v5 team game instead of playing selfish 1v9 basketball for himself.

SHOCKER

Harrison Barnes is trash, you're right, but Klay and Dray are legit. They were going to be legit all-star level players.

I'm just saying: he's never played on a team that was just ass awful on offense outside of him. This year early will be the closest (or the finals when everyone was injured and nobody would shoot a jumper), but they still have a pretty decent talent in Russell. If he comes out and just wrecks shit until Klay gets back, then does work in the playoffs, maybe he is... better than Kobe, I mean. He's just not better than Bran. Sucks but historically, there's just no way to regard him more highly. I prefer Curry as a player to Bron, tho.
