Statistically, Curry's best season was without doubt the 15-16 season where he averaged 30.1 points per game on 50.4% shooting overall and 45.4% 3P shooting. During his first 5 games of the 15-16 season, Curry shot 51.8% beyond the arc and 57.4% overall, averaging 35.8 PPG.

So far in the young 18-19 season, through 5 games, Curry is shooting 52.8% from beyond the arc and 55.0% overall on 34.6 PPG.

Did Curry peak in 2016, meaning that that was the best version of him that we'll ever see? Or is he not done peaking yet?

He has Durant now, so he doesnt have to do as much and once Cousins get added to the mix, he will probably average 22-24ppg

I agree.

He has more help now. The team has gelled with Durant so they know how to play with each other. You add Cousins to the mix and it will be interesting to see how they game adjust with him.

It's better for him. Less stress on the body. More longevity for him. (or he can do the Lebron diet)

He has a solid team around him, he doesn't have to do it all. He has a great game the other night

I agree with everyone....he's got more help now.

So, fewer attempts but likely better looks as defenses have to worry about Durant. (and of course all the other guys too)

So, in other words, we've already reached Peak Curry?

No and he not might reach his ultimate peak since he has a lot of help. There is no need for him to go Super Saiyan or Superman on the court.

Define "peak curry", if you're talking stats I'd say yes.

Curry last year was putting up numbers comparable to '15-'16. Curry this year is (thus far--small sample size) putting up numbers better than '15-'16. Curry remains at least as good as he was in '15-'16 in terms of basketball skill and impact on winning. He has improved his ability to get to the free throw line, so I think we're actually seeing a better Curry than the unanimous MVP. He also proved his ability to integrate an elite offensive talent into an offense that was already off-the-charts. That is another kind of improvement post-'15-'16.


What we are seeing right now is one of the greatest NBA peaks ever. Put Curry from '14-'15 to present against every other players best 5-season stretch, and there are only going to be a couple of players clearly ahead of Curry, and a few more arguable.

Integrating Cousins will involve some growing pains, but Curry's offense breathed life back into Javale's career, and made some otherwise poor/limited offensive players (Bogut, Festus Ezeli, Harrison Barnes) look passable. He'll get Boogie going, too.

The important stats are 3 titles and 2 MVP's in 4 years. The company is very limited.
