It was virtually impossible to snub Stephen Curry for this seasons All-Star team. Curry leads Golden State in points scored 23.5 per game, assists 9.2, and steals at 1.9 per contest. Curry has emerged this season as the outright leader of this team, assuming the point guard position that many critics thought he could not perform well enough consistently. Curry was set to prove the world wrong since the first game of the season. He has emerged as a legit Star in the NBA, not only making the All-Star team, but starting at the point.
Last season Curry was the biggest snub left off the All Star team, this season his performance has lifted him to the elite of the league, as he was also named to the Olympic “Dream Team” roster as well. With sharp-shooting accuracy from anywhere on the court, and under-rated ball handling skills, Curry’s skill-set is one of a playmaker. Besides Lebron James and Kevin Durant I cannot think of one player I would rather have the rock with the game on the line than Stephen Curry. Warriors fans have been loyal to their super star, and have not been rewarded an All-Star starter since the likes of Latrell Sprewell in 1995.
Unlike the teams Latrell balled with, Curry is leading a up and coming franchise that looks to contend in the Western Conference, currently 2nd in the Pacific with a 26-17 record. The Sprewell days were a nightmare for Warriors fans, and compared to today’s Warriors, fans will admit its a dream come true.
