Stephen Curry has established himself as a bonafide superstar in the NBA, and it’s likely his numbers will improve across the board this season. He’s at a point in his career where players usually start to reach the peak of their powers, and Curry has the potential to do some special things these next few seasons.

Starting with his points per game, look for that number to reach closer to 26 points per game this year, up from his 24 points per game average last season. Curry could easily reach nine assists per game, with a drop in turnovers of 3.7 per game down to under three.

This continued improvement will be thanks to another improvement in his field goal percentage. Year over year, Curry saw increases in his field goal percentage at the basket, going from 58.3 percent up to 62.5 percent, and also a big jump from 10-16 feet, climbing from 45.7 percent to 55.7 percent, among other areas. Expect more of the same.
