    OK so I changed my vote to Lillard. If he can learn to get others involved and not be too dependent on the rock being in his hands, he'd be most improved between the 3.

    Curry, I think, will be plateauing (this word is very difficult to spell) for a long time and sustain this level until 34.

    LMAO wow one game is all it takes to determine that Steph Curry is a product of the system and WB is being put down by racism :rolleyes:

    Season Stats:

    Steph Curry TS%: 0.678
    WB TS%: 0.558

    They're more than 10% apart when it comes to efficiency, you need to look at the overall season instead of 1 freaking game where WB played great and Curry played bad. If you don't believe stats then just think about last year, OKC lost more games than they won whenever WB scored over 40 pts, what does that tell you? Dude's a black hole and keeps shooting even if he isn't making shots. In fact WB led a team that was markedly better than what Durant had the year before and couldn't even reach the 8th seed, he's the very definition of all sizzle no steak people love watching his highlight reel plays but don't remember all the misses he has or the boneheaded decisions he makes on the court. He's iverson 2.0 his job is to entertain people not win games.

    When someone gets this low, there is nothing he says worth my time.

    Silly clowns like you have been saying this since Bev blew up WB's knee and looks what's happened since.

    Continue being clueless. You just can't help yourself.

    WB is still 27. If you think he's still gonna be this athletic in his 30s considering how physical he plays every game, I'd say you're crazy.

    OT: Curry destroyed Lillard last night. WB lost to Rubio. Curry is simply on another level.

    Lilliard will make most progress since he's young. Curry is indeed on another level, best player in the league, so he cannot get much better than this imo. Maybe even higher shooting percentages and a bit better defense, but not much else. Can you imagine him extending his range :D

    I can't see Curry NOT bombing half court shots when he turns 40. He's gonna be #1 threat for another decade and some change

    Basically. Is the OP Oscar Robertson or Clyde Frazier?
    Comical to compare Curry to Amare and Joe Johnson

    OT: Lillard destroyed Curry when they played in Portland a few weeks back. Put Curry on NY - they would not make the playoffs.

    ^^ LOL@ Curry is beneficiary of the GS system. Curry is the engine of the GS system, GS SYSTEM BENEFITS FROM CURRY AT THE POINT.

    Wow, it's happening.

    Lillard and Irving have solidified themselves in a league of their own.

    Stephie just needs more help!

    What has happened since? Westbrick's only continued to shoot at 43.5% FG for his career and you tell me that's gonna fly when he's old and can't dunk the basketball every play anymore? Dude's only in his 20's wait till he gets old then we'll see who's the ignorant one. :rolleyes:

    I don't even know why you're provoking me like this, I wasn't talking to you in the first place.

    Lillard: I'm as good as any point guard in this league

    "I think I'm as good as any point guard in this league," Lillard says above. "It's that simple. There's nothing that any point guard can do in this league that I can't."





    Stephen Jackson's Top 5 Point Guards

    1. Stephen Curry
    2. Russell Westbrook
    3. Kyrie Irving
    4. Damian Lillard
    5. James Harden
