There are many threads on Stephen Curry, so rather than start yet another one I'll post this here.

NY Times has a cool article today on Curry's love of POPCORN. He loves the stuff. Eats huge amounts of it. He rates the popcorn in every NBA arena in the league. Article is here. If you cannot get into the NY Times try googling: STEPHEN CURRY HAS A POPCORN PROBLEM


Enjoy.

'Peak Oil' did not work out so well either. Curry just turned 31; I'd say he still has at least 2 peak level years left minimum.

Jump shooters and big men can sometimes outlast other types. Ray Allen was still pretty effective until age 35. JJ Redick is still effective at 34 and a half.

A 15 year basketball career is not quite the same as centuries worth of fossilized deposits, but okay...

"Effective" and "peak" are two different things. Tiger Woods is still "effective." Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal are still "effective." Nobody would say any of those guys are at their "peak" though. Curry is obviously closer to his peak than Woods, Federer and Nadal, but it appears he's already reached his peak nonetheless.

Peaked, may not apply as much to Curry compared to other players. He's been consistently good. The type of player who could drop 40 on his last game of his career.

I would say Steph Curry is at the peak of his career now. Hopefully he can keep it going for as long as possible.

He already peaked........and they were historic MVP seasons. He is now "merely" an All-Star and MVP candidate on one of the best teams of all time. Shooters tend to age well, as do guys with solid handles, so I think we have several more seasons on All-NBA level play.

Warriors have 2 years left with the championship window open.

So yes Curry peaked in 2016 & 17 and he was the deadliest shooter this game has ever seen.

The rules are built for players like him. Look what happened when he got roughed a bit against Cleveland in one of the years. Lose your focus, rhythm, more tired. Also, it's hard to have the desperation feel when you've done it so many times as Curry has, plus Durant has taken the main load off Curry.

Curry's peak is a lot lower than I expected.
I thought he'd be really hard to stop in the NBA Finals, but he never came close to the best NBA Finals players (Jordan, Bird, Shaq, Wade) and never even won a Finals MVP.
NBA Finals usually have the toughest defense, and I thought a player that had infinite range would make the defense irrelevant.
Instead, Curry couldn't buy a basket at times, including the most crucial time of all - Game 7 at Home, vs Cleveland.
