    Who would you take right now: Curry or Lillard?

    Bill Simmons and Raja Bell recently discussed whether Lillard has a legitimate argument for being more valuable than Curry right now and moving forward.
    Career-wise, Curry is hands-down better than Lillard. But let's say this summer, you have the choice of taking one or the other. Who are you taking and why?

    EDIT: For arguments sake, let's say the team around them is of equal talent to the other's. We all know the Warriors have been way more talented than the Blazers.

    If Curry is 100% then it is still him.

    Interesting. It would seem like Curry's shooting would be a massive boon to a lesser-talented team. Do you think Lillard's a better leader? Is it because he gets to the hoop and the foul line better than Curry?

    Looks like we're all in agreement so far.
    I think part of Simmons' argument was that Lillard, despite not winning anything, seems to already have the competitive, me-against-them mentality of greats like Kobe and Jordan. Lillard also legitimately gets to the rim and the foul line better than Curry. Their career stats aren't too far off from each other, except for the shooting.
    But I think Curry's transcendent shooting ó he's an A+ while Lillard, despite his big shots, is more of an B+ or an A- ó is too valuable. You can plug him into any team, or plug any player into his team. It all works because of the unrivaled space he creates. It'll be interesting to see him age. But Redick makes me think Curry can keep his peak going well into his mid-30s and be a lethal threat from deep until he's at least 40.
    Curry's also significantly better on defense.

    -If I'm the Lakers, I take Bledsoe,

    -If I'm GSW, I take Curry,
    -If I'm Portland I take Dame
    -If I'm Bucks, I take Hill,
    -If I'm Raptors, I take Lowry,
    -If I'm Cs, I take Kemba,
    -If I'm Rockets, I sell CP3 and then get screwed by him... Is that good enough?

    If you don't want to actually talk about the question just don't post here.

    What is off the subject? You already have removed my post saying that "basketball is only 5 players and who is better is relevant to how he fits with the others in a TEAM" and yet, while there is nothing than common sense and knowledge in my posts, you keep challenging them...

    What is your problem? I don't get it!

    i think he could deal with double teams better and is a better defender....curry on a meh team would get doubled all the time and we have seen what happens when he is doubled where is lillard is the better ball player and can do more with less... if curry has shooting options id take him all day though... its similar to what i said a few years back when people thought curry was better than bron when he was winning the mvps.
