Wow, I didn't even notice all the negative feedback I got until now. Honestly, I just don't see it. He can shoot the freakin' lights out, that's for sure I'll give him that, but when I say he's overrated, the NBA fan in me comes out and I read all these projections about him in the NBA and I think he'll go down as a huge bust if he's picked in the top 15. He's a 6'1" SG in the NBA. How many successful shooting guards can you find at 6'1"? He'd be lucky to be the next Eddie House. And don't give me that 7 assists per game stuff. He has the ball in his hands more than anyone on that team, if he's not shooting every trip on offense, he better be dishing out the assist. Plus, for his career in college, his assists to turnover ratio sits at 2. Some of the better point guards in the NBA are in the high 4's, to 5's. If he wants to really help himself out as far as his pro-stock goes, he'd show off his point guard abilities. Granted, that may come at the expense of his team winning.

As for college...yeah, he's great. I'd like to see him play against bigger/better teams though first. Redick had a hard time in college when he was guarded by longer players and he was 6'4". He could get into a funk with a long defender on him just as easy as he could drain four straight 3's. Now Redick is a few inches taller than him, runs around screens better than Curry does and is still having a difficult time adjusting to NBA level a few years into his career.


In the NCAA tournament last year he took it to Georgetown, Wisconsin, and Kansas, consecutively. This year he torched Oklahoma.

You are not smarter than your favorite team's upper management, so stop trying to be.

Well espn and nbadraft.net both have him 9th overall next summer. I'm not saying he's gonna tear up the league, but your prediction is absolutely ridiculous

http://www.nbadraft.net/


How? You call me ridiculous, call me out in your sig and yet I haven't heard anything about how he'll be effective in the NBA as a 6' shooting guard?

Again, he's an outstanding college player, don't misinterpret my overrated statement.

One note on JJ... I really think he needs a change of scenery. The Magic just don't give him enough time on the court for him to establish any type of rhythm. If Redick doesn't get the enough court time to get some rhythm, he will never be effected. Put him on a team where he can get 20 minutes a night off the bench and he will be very dangerous.


He is starting to get consistent minutes off of the bench now because Bogans is out 4-6 weeks but he's in a really big shooting slump right now and is not hitting shots. He's shown really good signs though. Guys still bite on his pump fake and he's able to use that to get great looks all the time. For as much as people thought he couldn't get his own shot, he's doing a pretty good job of it in the NBA.

It doesn't seem like he fits well with Orlando though. Watching them three times this past week, it's pretty noticeable that guys are hesistant to pass to him. Some of that probably stems from him not shooting it well, but there have been times where he's hit a few in a row and they'll just completely pass him up when he's sitting open in a corner. Especially Turkoglu and Dwight. Once they get the ball, it's almost guaranteed they're going to put up a shot. Dwight Howard might be the worst center I have seen when it comes to kicking the ball out to open shooters. Once he gets the ball in the post, he gets in the mind frame that he has to put up a shot, even if he's double-teamed. It leads to him turning the ball over a lot by either losing it or plowing guys over.

You're right, it was a heat of the moment comment. He will be picked in the first round, but I just think teams will be hesitant to draft him for a number of different reasons and I'm questionable on his ability to run the point in the NBA, that's all. Great college player though.

I always thought Curry was overrated and was making a huge mistake by not going into the draft after his storybook NCAA tournament. He's too small to be a 2-guard in the NBA and not good enough on either end to be a point guard. Somebody will draft him in the 2nd round and will be cut by mid-rookie season.


I realize you are entitled to your opinion. But you are an idiot.


My thoughts exactly.

You got the negative feedback because you said he was overrated in the college basketball forum, instead of the NBA. You should have clarified you thought he was great in the college game, but overrated in terms of standing at the NBA level.

One thing we know about Curry opposed to Redick: Wardell Stephen Curry II knows how to perform when the pressure is on... consistently.

For the most part, Curry has lit up every one of the major programs that he has faced. Teams try to take him out of the game and they just can't do it. I think Curry can be a successful NBA player, but not a superstar. If he would get drafted by a team in the mid-late first round that has some established players already, he will be a huge asset. If he gets drafted by a team like the Thunder, Clippers, or any of the perennial lottery teams then he will be a bust. Put him in a Richard Hamilton type role and he will flourish.

One note on JJ... I really think he needs a change of scenery. The Magic just don't give him enough time on the court for him to establish any type of rhythm. If Redick doesn't get the enough court time to get some rhythm, he will never be effected. Put him on a team where he can get 20 minutes a night off the bench and he will be very dangerous.
