Stephen Curry had his breakout season in 2012-2013 for the  Golden State Warriors, where he scored 40 points or more three times. That’s pretty impressive, if you ask me.

All of those times, however, were after the All-Star break, when he started to play a lot better. He is now well known for his lightning fast release, ability to shoot, and fancy handles. All of these are dazzling attributes to budding point guards like Curry.

He’s bound to have an even better season with the Warriors next year, as he’s projected to take them to the playoffs and matchup with some of the NBA’s veterans like Chris Paul.

Curry has shown the NBA that he’s one of the best there is, and will take his game to the next level any time that he can. With that being said, here are some bold predictions that we have for him.

1. He Will Be An All-Star:

If we’ve learned anything, it’s that Curry was the biggest All-Star snub. Don’t you think that he’s determined to make it back to the game? I sure do!

He may have said that he didn’t care about them not choosing him, but like I’ve always said, it’s great to be getting some recognition for what you do. Curry knows that he doesn’t need to be an All-Star, but if he plays as good has he has with the Warriors all season long, it’s inevitable.

2. He Will Break His Own Record:

In the 2012-2013 season, Curry broke the NBA record with 272 3-point shots in the regular season. That’s another impressive record right there.

I think he’s easily capable of doing it again, and if he’s more healthy than he was last year, he’ll add to that number.

The first half of the season was good for him, but the second half was much better. Curry is certainly going to shine and break his own record of 272. He won’t blow it out, but it’ll be pretty close.

3. He Will Lead the Warriors to the Conference Finals:

The Warriors were the Cinderalla story of the 2013 playoffs, where they upset the Denver Nuggets in the first round, and were the only team in the Western Conference to play the Spurs and not get swept.

They had a good chance to win that series, but in the end, early mistakes were too costly against a veteran team like the Spurs.

This next year, the Warriors are focused. Of course, if they have all their crucial piece back, they’re going to make a much deeper postseason run than they did last year.
