After watching the summer league games I have been torn on Curry. He is a very smart player, good defender and a deadly shooter when he is hot. But he also has very poor shot selection and I really did not see him be a facilitator. I was impressed with how many steals he got and shocked me on defense with how active he was. On the glass it seemed like the ball bounced his way more often then he went after it. On the other hand we still have not seen what Ellis can do playing point for us fulltime and who knows, maybe he is the point guard of the future and Curry is the shooting guard. I think we exagerate it when we talk about him like a franchise player. He did not show me anything in the summer league I wanted to see. I still have hope for him and I think he will be a solid player but he won't be an all star or lead a team. Leave that to Ellis and Randolph. Now it was only summer league and he will have much more weapons in the regular season with Jackson, Randolph, Ellis, Biedrins, Maggette, Azebuike, Morrow etc. It's possible that Curry is a great off the bench player in his career aswell. I will be honest though, heading into the draft I really wanted Flynn. But he did not fall to us and at that point I knew Curry was on his way. He is a big risk becuase we wanted a pure point guard , maybe he will become that in time but he may have to change his thinking from taking a ton of shots and dishing when needed to becoming a balanced player. He still has alot to do in terms of being our point guard. We don't have room for another player taking fifteen or twenty shots a game when we already have Ellis, Randolph, Jackson, and Maggette. But his and our future can only get brighter. No matter who starts at point I am sure that this year we will once again be a team in the playoff hunt. With a great bench, two all stars in the making, a coach on his way to a milestone and the best fans in the league the Warriors will be back this year.
