    Not sure if serious. He definitely deserved the award this year. Sure cases can be made for some other players too, but if you look at it objectively, no way they should win the award over Curry. GS had a historic season; he is the No1 option on that historic team, he broke the record for 3pters made, shot a good % from the field

    Also, every MVP player gets destroyed at times, during the season and definitely during the playoffs.

    If you wanna make a case, that Curry shouldn't have won the MVP last year - go ahead and yeah I agree, that one was pretty much gifted to him. This year however, he clearly deserved the award.

    I dislike the GSW and I don't particularly like Curry but you gotta appreciate the season he had.

    Those are fashion sunglasses. Obviously for looking good for the ladies watching him practice.

    Probably to block any sight below and force Curry to look up (not at ball). My daughter used to train with different glasses intended to keep her eyes up. She also has done a similar drill (dribbling basketball while tossing a tennis ball). Also dribbling different size basketballs. She is a way better point guard than I ever was... skills training is way better now than when I played.

    She also used to train with gloves intended to force you to use just your fingertips. In eight years playing she has only been called for palming once... and that was a weak a$$ call by a bad ref. Meanwhile you see lots of kids mimic players like Curry and carrying the ball while dribbling. Even had an argument with a ref who said the opposing team's player wasn't gaining an advantage by carrying the ball on cuts. :rolleyes: I asked him if a player simply avoided dribbling altogether on drives would that be "gaining an advantage"? He would have T'd me if I asked that during the game. :grin:

    Along those lines & "the NBA game is changing" line, the MVP award now goes to the BEST player not the Most Valuable Player. Where would GS finish without Curry? Worse case, they'd be #3 in the NBA. They're stacked!

    That being said, Curry's a great player. #2 or 3 imho. Just not the most valuable to his team.

    They'd be a playoff team. 3rd place sounds really high. They wouldn't be a serious contender. With him, they're the favorites.

    Curry is also a very well rounded offensive player. It's unfair to say he's just a great outside shooter.

    Very true, he could average 20 plus without shooting any 3s in a game.

    I agree with your 2nd point, but slightly disagree with your 1st. Curry isn't the only good shooter they have. GS would still free up their other shooters with their moving/pushing screens for open shots they hit at 40%. OK! :( I'll drop them to 4th. :grin:

    I agree! I can't stand that guy! Luckily for us his brother Stephen makes it exciting.

    Michael Jordan ruined the NBA long before Curry started playing organized basketball.

    I agree. He ruined the NBA for fans of caveman style, Iso ball, 90-79 type games.

    I live in the Bay Area and have watched almost every single Warriors game this season. That being said, I think people on this board vastly overrate the Warriors without Curry, probably bc of how many times they beat the Rockets without him. Don't forget, they got blown out by the Mavs without him the night before they beat the Mavs on NYE.

    Assuming every other team is FULLY healthy, I'd rank the following ahead of a Curry-less Warriors:

    Spurs, Thunder, Clippers, Grizzlies, Mavs, Cavs, Heat... and possibly the Blazers and Celtics as well.

    I'd also consider the Bulls since a healthy Butler & Noah make a big difference.
