Too small, too skinny, too young.
One year ago, many observers thought that it would be difficult for the young guard to become a solid professional in the NBA.
Obviously, they were wrong. During his rookie campaign with the Warriors, Curry averaged 17.5 points, 4.5 rebounds, 5.9 assists and 1.9 steals per game.
He has played extremely well during the last four months of the season when he averaged 21.1 points, 6.8 assists and 4.9 rebounds per game.
He was the runner-up for the 2010 NBA Rookie of the Year award, just behind Sacramento’s new star Tyreke Evans.
Although he lacks experience in playing at the international level, Dell Curry’s son should have a major impact from the bench.
His three-point shooting percentage (43.7 percent) is precious and like his new team-mates Kevin Durant or Danny Granger, Curry could probably be an outstanding zone-buster.
His ball handling and his passing are already exceptional too.
“In adding Stephen we have brought into the national team fold one of the game’s most exciting and promising newcomers,” Jerry Colangelo said.
