What they're saying:
RealGM: Stephen Curry can shoot, that much we all know. But his abilities as a pure point guard are better than some might realize.
ESPN: NBA executives have mixed opinions on Curry. Some worry that he lacks the size, strength, explosive athleticism to be a great NBA player. They also worry that Curry won't be able to make the transition to the pros. Others think he's going to be a terrific NBA player. They see a kid with unlimited range, good quickness, and a big time basketball IQ. He may not be a pure point guard yet, but give him a little time and he could be great. Look for him to go somewhere between 8 and 15 in the draft.
Collegehoopsnet.com: One of the great debates of this year’s draft class is how good of a pro Stephen Curry will be. While it is highly doubtful he will be as good in the NBA as he is in college, he has enough tools to have a fighting chance to excel in the NBA. Whether he can play point guard in the NBA might be the biggest determinant as to what kind of career he will have.
