When Stephen Curry came into the National Basketball Association, there were certain things that Curry was known for with the top thing being his three-point shooting ability. Curry will put that on display Saturday night during NBA All-Star weekend and if there is one thing that seems fairly certain to me, that is Curry winning this competition. Curry has been shown practicing for the competition and there is no pure shooter like Curry in this competition.
Curry is averaging 21 points a game this season for the Golden State Warriors including making 44.7% of his three-point attempts. That is the one major skill that Curry has in being able to hit consistently from beyond the arc. Golden State has had to ride Curry this whole season and while the team lost five straight games heading into the All-Star break, the Warriors are 30-22 for the season. That is due to what Curry can do both scoring and assisting his teammates.
Saturday night will be all about Curry though and I don’t see any reason why this can’t be a runaway performance from him. I honestly think Curry has the ability to challenge some of the records in the three-point contest as well. Curry is not Craig Hodges by any stretch because Hodges was just a three-point specialist while Curry has a more complete game but Curry can shoot just as well as Hodges from deep. The three-point contest is the lone event that I really care about during All-Star weekend besides the game so I look forward to seeing what Curry can do.
