Steph Curry of the Golden State Warriors was selected to Second Team All-NBA behind Chris Paul and James Harden at the guard spots. I believe Curry could have unseated either Harden or Paul, and I will give five reasons why he should have been on the first team.
I believe this video speaks for itself.
Chris Paul was voted to the All-NBA First Team despite missing 20 games. Even though Paul had a great season, I feel that him missing that amount of games should have propelled Curry to the point-guard spot on the All-NBA First Team list.
Everyone knows that Steph Curry can put the ball in the hole, but the evolution of his game is having point guards in the NBA chase him to point guard supremacy.
All-NBA First team votes have a lot to do with the individual's impact on the team as a whole. Curry is known as a scorer and playmaker, but he has also stepped up in the leadership department. When looking at the top players in the NBA, they are also some of the top leaders as well. It is essential to provide leadership as a star player because it makes the other players follow suit.
Stephen Curry averaged 24.0 PPG, 8.5 APG and 1.6 SPG this NBA season. In this day and age when point guards like to shoot first and pass second, Curry finds the balance to score and create for his teammates. Curry was also a shade away from a 50-40-90 season, which is rare today. When looking at the other guards who were before him, his numbers are arguably better than both.
