As I am casually watching this Bulls/Warriors game on TNT, I am curious what people think of Steph Curry as a defensive player. I can't say I've watched him enough, but when I look at his body type I have a hard time believing he can be that much of a presence on the defensive end.
As great as Kevin Durant is offensively, I was watching that OKC/Miami game last week and I couldn't help but notice he stood around on the defensive end a LOT. LeBron defended him, but he didn't defend LeBron.
This is why I adore Paul George. He puts so much energy into the defensive end, and he often leads us offensively as well. Does this mean he is better than Durant? Of course not. Or does it?
I have digressed a bit so you can respond in a variety of ways, I guess....
*What do you think of Steph Curry's defense?
*Regardless of how you feel about Steph defensively, what are your thoughts about overall player value? If a player is unquestionably the best offensive player in the league, but also unquestionably a C- defensive player, can they still be considered a top 5 or top 10 player in the league?
p.s. I'm going to the Pacers/Blazers game. In your faces.
