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.

5. James Harden's Lack of Defense

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.

President Obama's Got Jokes About Warriors, 1995-96 Bulls

The Golden State Warriors recently visited the White House to be acknowledged for their 2014-15 NBA championship. As you may know, President Obama is a huge fan of basketball, and especially his beloved Chicago Bulls. While introducing the team, President Obama joked that he was in the presence of one member of the greatest team in basketball history with Steve Kerr on stage. The Warriors head coach was a member of the 1995-96 Bulls team that many think of as the greatest team of all time.

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.
