Thorpe: Top guys to enter NBA since '07 (Insider)

56

8. Stephen Curry, Warriors Drafted in June 2009; 7th overall pick Guess how many point guards in the NBA have a true shooting percentage of 59 or better, have a rebound rate better than 10 and show an assist rate of 23 or better? Steve Nash is a given, and Chris Paul qualifies if we round up his 58.6 TS%. Besides those two superstars, the only other lead guard to meet those standards is Curry. That's it. Pretty special company. The scariest part is that I see Curry improving a lot in the next few seasons -- he's just been an average passer this season, and he's a bit turnover-prone. Still, his ability as a shooter is special. He's a contender for "best shooter under 25" in the NBA.
