Stephen Curry Robbed of Spot in 2012-13 NBA All-Star Game

This is the problem with letting the fans determine who gets to play in the NBA All-Star Game.

Despite having the best season of his three year NBA career (averaging nearly 21 PPG and 7 APG), and leading the Golden State Warriors to a 26-15 record, Stephen Curry was snubbed of a spot in the All-Star Game.

Actually, Curry was more than just snubbed. He was blatantly robbed of a roster spot that he is more than deserving of. Who is in the game in place of Curry, you ask?

Tony Parker is averaging 20 PPG and 7 APG, Tim Duncan is putting up 17.5 PPG and 9.8 RPG, and Zach Randolph is putting up 16 PPG and 11 RPG. Even though it seems as though there aren’t enough spots for the game’s best players, it is a downright travesty that Curry will not be suiting up for the Western Conference.

David Lee, Curry’s teammate on Golden State, became the first Warrior in over sixteen years to be selected as an All-Star. Although Lee is deserving of the spot, Curry is the main reason that Warriors went from bottom of the league to one of the top teams in the Western Conference.

Curry has scored 25+ points in thirteen individual games this year, and has dished out less than 5+ assists just eight times. Furthermore, Curry has not only elevated his own game, but he has elevated Golden State basketball as a whole.

Last season, through 41 games, the Warriors were 18-23. This season, the Warriors are at 26-15. That, more than anything else, should prove that Curry should be an All-Star.

Stephen Curry Puts On A Clinic Against Spurs

NBA fans and media alike were incredibly excited for the first meeting of the San Antonio Spurs and Golden State Warriors this season, and many expected an uber-competitive game to take place on Monday night. Well, the game was enthralling, but not very competitive. Stephen Curry put on a clinic, and was dribbling circles around the Spurs throughout. Here's some evidence. If that floater wasn't epic enough, in the second-half Curry added this drive in which he pulled the magic out on Jonathon Simmons.
