I see Curry having more trouble defending Bosh then Bosh defending Curry.

Got to go with the experience and height here. Bosh get's nearly every rebound in this scenario, and if there were put backs, well game over.

I think this would be a close one, both are very capable scorers. Bosh is actually a better defender when he switches onto guards though so I'd say he takes it.

Bosh seems like the obvious pick, but when you actually think about it, how the hell is he going to guard Steph? Steph has three huge factors here for a 1 on 1 type game. Speed, ability to finish off balance near the rim, and a deadly three point shot. I honestly think that if Curry got the ball first, he would start the game by draining 2 or 3 straight threes. Then Bosh would have to get up in his face, so Curry would just blow by him for a layup. This would be the pattern for him on offense the entire game.

When Bosh has the ball he would have to dribble down from the three point line and hope that Curry (who's one of the best stealers in the game already) doesn't swoop it from him. If Curry was even average from three, I honestly think he'd take this game with ease. Throw in the fact that Bosh sucks at defense, and this matchup does not bode well for him.

Could easily see Curry winning 21-12 or so if he was hot.

People are heavily underestimating the fact that you get twice as many points for a three pointer as a regular field goal in this little mock setup. Any fast guard who is good at swipes and deadly from three is going to crush any big who doesn't take threes in a 1v1.

Curry might get hot and go on a little run, but once Bosh gets the ball, it's over.

Well Steph has the ability to do this to taller defenders. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kwZEypxDYpo

Or he could miss the first and Bosh could get the rebound. It's not like any player is automatic from 3.
