2010-11 Recap - Stephen Curry

Stephen Curry has such basketball acumen that it’s worth noting that he only has two years of NBA experience. His game is still growing and as good as a player that he is now, he is only going to get better. Curry discussed his 2010-11 season in the video below:


After earning runner-up honors for the NBA’s Rookie of the Year Award for the 2009-10 season, Curry spent his summer playing with the World Championship U.S. National Team. He played a key role off the bench in the team’s march to a gold medal and he came into training camp with a full head of steam. As noted in the video above, Curry avoided the sophomore slump and averaged 18.6 points, 5.8 assists and 3.9 rebounds in his second season, all while continuing to enhance his skills as an NBA point guard.

Playing alongside Monta Ellis, Curry was part of the most productive backcourt in the NBA in terms of combined points, rebounds, assists and steals. In addition, he set a Warriors franchise record by shooting an NBA-leading 93.4 percent from the free throw line and ranked third in the league in 3-point field goal percentage (44.2 percent). To put those numbers into context, no other player in the history of the NBA has shot at least 45 percent from the field, 40 percent from three-point range and 85 percent from the free throw line in his first two NBA seasons. As a matter of fact, only four other active players (Steve Nash, Ray Allen, Dirk Nowitzki and Peja Stojakovic) have ever achieved those numbers in back-to-back seasons.

The recipient of the NBA’s 2010-11 Sportsmanship Award, Curry is on the path to NBA stardom. He participated in his second NBA All-Star Weekend in February, playing for the Sophomore squad in the Rookie Challenge and winning the Taco Bell Skills Challenge in Los Angeles. Should Curry keep progressing in his NBA career, he can make several return appearances to All-Star Weekend – possibly as an All-Star.

Check out some more facts and figures from Curry's 2010-11 campaign:
