A fun to watch scorer.

During his time with the Golden State Warriors, Steph Curry has had 106 teammates who have appeared in at least one game. Some played in exactly one game, while others played in hundreds. Some never actually played in a game that Curry was active for, while others formed historically great partnerships with him.

And I’m ranking all 106 of them before a new season starts and he adds to the tally. Better get a move on.

Players are ranked — and stats are shown — based only on their time as Curry’s teammate. How good/bad they were in other organizations doesn’t matter. How good/bad they were on pre-2009-10 Warriors teams doesn’t matter.


#38 — Reggie Williams

Games: 104 (T-27th out of 106)
Points per game: 10.6 (23rd out of 106)
Rebounds per game: 3.1 (T-48th out of 106)
Assists per game: 1.8 (T-35th out of 106)

Reggie Williams may have gone undrafted, and Steph Curry may have been a lottery pick, but they were both rookies on a 2009-10 Warriors team that was equal parts entertaining and laughably bad.

Williams played overseas, and then dominated the G League, before finally joining the Warriors on a 10-day contract. The Dubs were bad, and able to give lots of playing time to evaluate youngsters, and so Williams played more than 32 minutes a night in his 24 rookie games. His reputation as a scorer quickly proved accurate, as he averaged 15.2 points per game with good efficiency.

He picked up where he left off in his second and final season with Golden State. His role was reduced, but he still impressed on the offensive end. He even almost kept pace with Curry from beyond the arc, as he made 42.3% of his three-point attempts. In all, he averaged 9.2 points per game despite playing just a hair over 20 minutes a night, and had a very nice 58.5% true-shooting percentage.

I always enjoyed his shooting form, which was simultaneously smooth and unconventional. And ultimately he was just a very functional offensive player.

It was a different tale on the other end of the court, but then again those Warriors teams were an utter disaster defensively. He was bad defensively, but for a lottery-bound team, his offense still made him a good player.
