    Stephen Curry's bad defense fully exposed! The only Stephen Curry highlights are Chris Paul breaking his ankles and James Harden draining threes in his face.

    His defense was pretty badly exposed in Game 1 too. It just wasn't so bad that everything else couldn't cover. He's short and small, and his quickness isn't much of an advantage on a guy like Harden or Paul.

    Will any media talk about Stephen Curry's base defense, like they did two years ago on Harden's bad defense?

    No - they'll say that statistically, he was a top 5 defender in the playoffs last year - heard Skip and Shannon talk about it this morning. Shannon actually said that was a flawed stat.

    Curry is coming off injury. His defense was suspect before that.

    Lol, media are going with the story that he isn't healthy and cant move well. If Harden was hurt, they would be saying "Well he is playing, so if you are going to play you have to make an effort defensively. You can't be a negative out on the court. Etc"

    I would also appreciate footage of Swaggy P playing defense.

    A warriors fan tried to tweet Haralobos last night arguing it was good D when he shut down Harden twice, and Haralobob’s response was, “sure he’s a lockdown defender, when you allow him to foul 4-5 times each possession.”

    Harden and CP3 are taking turns serving up Curry chicken

    he looks so outmatched trying to guard either one

    Nate Duncan: "I thought Curry played respectable defense and at least he 'tried.'"

    Jesus, how come he's allowed to get away with blatantly hacking/handchecking Harden?
