Coming out of Davidson, many questioned if Stephen Curry could translate his mid-major success into the NBA. It seems as if such a question has been answered and substantially squashed as Curry has emerged as an All-Star guard in the league and his ceiling only continues to grow.
So does his confidence as the Golden State Warriors guard was asked who was the better offensive player between he and LeBron James this past week. His answer? Well, it wasn’t LeBron.
Needless to say, Stephen Curry is seemingly ready to take the next step into super-stardom and plans to take the Golden State Warriors with him.
In fact, he says he’s trying to establish himself as the best point guard in the NBA.
“I’m trying to establish myself as the best point guard in the league,” Curry said on The Morning Show. “That quest for a championship is something that I value highly. As an organization, Golden State hasn’t experienced that since the ’70s. Right now, I feel like we’re contending for that and have a solid window to try to get that done. So that’s my mission. Personal (accolades) will (only be) a part of that mission.”
While he’ll never likely be the best ‘traditional’ point guard in the league (currently that honor goes to Chris Paul), the NBA is seemingly moving away from such and becoming more of a combo guard league. That’s where Stephen Curry excels, so it’s no stretch to think that the veteran could emerge as the premier ‘point guard’ in the NBA if things continue to go his way.
