    looks like realCURRYgm is at it again. They are now claiming that James Harden would suffer the most under FIBA of any current nba superstar

    if anybody has an account on realgm please you have my permission to post this info there( but beware the mods their are very strict on percieved curry slander)

    Here are the receipts, curry was apart of 2 gold medal team under coach k. the 2010 team in turkey and the 2014 team in spain. In both tournaments, Steph Curry didnt even make a smidge or imprint in anyone of the 18 games. Why did curry opt to not play on the 2016 team usa team and this years olympics. The below stats will go into detail why you and many others have been lied too

    James Harden was the best player on that 2014 team and he was named the captain of team usa by coach k for a reason

    league leaders from the 2014 team usa roster in which both curry and harden were on. Harden lapped curry is stats and impact, in fact one could make the case that without harden that tournament they lose to serbia

    Harden on the 2014 gold medal team finished with the 4th most points in the entire tournament while playing the least amount of minutes of anyone in the top 15

    Harden led team usa( once again) a roster that featured mr. effiecency himself stephen curry in TRUE SHOOTING PERCENTAGE at 67%. Curry was nowhere close

    Harden finished 2nd in the entire tournament in total free-throws made and keep in mind hardens minutes werent even in the top 15 among that FIBA tournament

    Harden actually was a much better defender in FIBA than he was in the NBA at the time, having an incredible 3.9 steals per 36 minutes in that FIBA tournament 2nd only to ricky rubio who had whopping 6.8

    Harden also averaged a staggering 26 ppg per 36 minutes in FIBA as well
    ----------

    As for wardell curry.. he shot 40% for the field for the tournament, he was only good for technical foul shots and catch and shoot 3's. Curry was the only member of team usa to finish in the top 10 in fouls committed tho with 44 lol. Fact of the matter is, it is Curry not harden who would get exposed in FIBA

    Actually if the NBA had FIBA rules Harden might actually be even more dominant

    I used to have an account there before ClutchFans. My handle was Sharpie. I can't get back on anymore. I did a couple All-Time Drafts, first ones they did, I think. Argued about Bill Russell. I was reading a bit recently. They are very sensitive nowadays. Not going back.

    Yes, because Curry is such a gritty player who thrives on contact and lack of space.

    How about: no.

    Why do we still hear so much about Curry in 2021.

    And why are we making threads honoring random anonymous internet people's opinions?
