NBA Rank: Curry #16

8

After ranking in the Monta Ellis level (#40) at the start of the season, Stephen Curry has risen all the way to near-superstar level on ESPN's season-ending top-30 players. After failing to be named a top-12 player in the western conference alone, he now nearly makes the top-12 NBA total (and, if you ignore positions, sits as the first man out for All-NBA). His spot is decently above the two men who stole his all-star spot (Aldridge @ #25, Randolph @ #29), and also above illustrious PGs Rose (#23), Rondo (#22), Wall (#21), and Williams (#17), which, by my account, has him as ESPN's #4 PG, behind CP3, Westbrook, and Parker. Pointless in a sense, but good to see both the national recognition, and some affirmation that it's not our biases that think Steph Curry is joining the NBA's elite.
