I thnk so. This guy is an amazing scorer and an amazing passer(remember he plays the wing not the guard). He has a sweet stroke like his dad. He wasn't projected to go in the lottlo but seeing how he is playing he might be up there in the top 14. Hell I'd love to see him in TO

I cant see him being good at any spot other then PG, he is much too small to be a guard in the NBA. Im not sure he has the handles or the true passing ability to be a star PG. I did make one good point on the other site, they were like name one PG you would take over him.. i was like... Ricky Rubio

i can name 2 point guards i would take over him. Rubio and Mills.

As a 2 Guard he is a great shooter but would be taken down on defence. His future is definately as a point and i think he will be a lottery pick because of what he has done in college.

Rubio will go top five, and I don't see Stephen Curry getting in any higher than 20th overall. I have a ridiculous amount of respect for the guy's shooting ability but he's too small and too slight for teams to bank on any higher than 20th in the draft.
My money's on Rubio for rookie of the year, btw.

don't forget Jrue Holiday, Brandon Jennings, Ty Lawson and Darren Collison

He can be a SG like AI, but I think he switched to PG for the NBA

Demar DeRozan, James Harden, Tyreke Evans, Chase Budinger, Gerald Henderson at SG could all be taken ahead of Curry

does anyone remember salim stoudamire? How about JJ reddick? This kid's not gonna be anything more than a benchwarmer. GREAT college player, but I'd be shocked if the did anything in the league

Im thinking along those lines actually, but perhaps a good role player or good backup PG.

I' be surprised if someone picked Jennings. He gets limited minutes in Europe and he averages about 5 points a game.

I think the BEST Curry could become is a Ben Gordon type of player.

Jrue Holiday is terrible, he is the most overated player i have ever ever ever seen. i think jennings will be good, europe will do him the world of good and will come into the NBA much more mature.

Difference between JJ Reddick and Curry is Curry can create his own shot.\\

One guy to watch for is Evan Turner from my favorite college team Ohio State Buckeyes. Moving up the draft board like crazy. Can play 3 different position, create his own shot, rebound and has great reach. Just needs to work on his turnovers. He does a lot of that. : (
