5. Steph Curry – David Lee
Curry’s ankle issues delayed the rise of what could be the league’s most effective pick-and-roll combo. Lee is a tough cover as the roll man because of his athleticism and dribbling skill (though, like Bosh, he also varies the pace and location of his roll). When coupled with a lights-out shooter like Curry, it puts immense pressure on the hedging defender. If he focuses too much on deterring a Curry jumper, Lee has more space diving to the basket. If Lee receives his attention, Curry most likely finds room to unleash his sweet stroke.
