    Stephen Curry best player in 2009 draft class?

    Better than Blake imo.

    No I believe James Harden is.

    Then I'll say it's Stephen Curry, then Blake/Holiday.

    Easily James Harden. Still would take Blake over Curry as well. One good series and a good second half can't put the ankle issues in the past. Especially since he missed games this season and almost was taken out of this game because of his ankle.

    Yes I'd rather have Blake too due to his health, but that doesn't make him a better player.

    Curry is not just on a playoff run/second half. His first 3 seasons are really great.

    I would say Harden, but Curry is proving to be one of the best

    Curry and Harden both came into their own this year. It's a really hard call to make. Curry has been incredible in the post season so far though.

    Harden, although Curry is definitely better than Blake.

    Curry only missed 4 games this season.

    all 3 players are great in their own right. I dont think you can go wrong with Curry, Blake or Harden. Price wise Curry is only making 11 mil a year, his production is ridiculous, and so fun to watch a 6'2 pg take over games.

    I completely agree. And I do think Curry is criminally underpaid for the production he can provide. I also never said Curry was only good in the 2nd half/playoffs. He has been good for 3 years and getting rid of Monta was addition by subtraction - they freed curry.

    However, just the possibility of his ankle acting up would easily make me take the other 2 over him. But I think Blake was overrated to the point that he became underrated. He improved his offense, defense, and passing. He gets so few shots because that team is stacked. As the only go to guy on a team I could see him averaging 27/14 on 50+% shooting.

    And as for Harden, he is durable, big, strong and us unlikely to be easily injured. He is also a great playmaker at the 2 guard position and is an average defender while curry is slightly below average.

    Don't remind me
    The value of elite scoring ability, by Phil Jackson:

    "This is a guy, we recognize his talent, and his skill is the kind of skill and talent that gets you through playoff games where things get sticky, grind-out, and basketball becomes a force game and suddenly you need to have a player who has the capabilities of scoring with someone hanging on them in a situation thatís critical. Heís one of those players, one of the few players who can do that.Ē

    If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.

    Harden before Curry.

    But for real, can we admire Curry's record he set? He is a POINT GUARD, there aren't plays designed for him to get spot up three point jumpers like shooting guards/small forwards. He gets most of his shots off dribble seperation, pick and rolls, and late shock clock jumpers.

    Yes Curry has the ball in his hands more often then Ray, but I believe it was easier for Ray because he didn't have to cross someone up to get his shot.

    Curry may be the greatest shooter to ever play the game.
