#1 – Stephen Curry, Golden State Warriors

There really isn’t much left to say about Warriors’ superstar Stephen Curry. He’s the reigning NBA Most Valuable Player, an elite scorer, and was the driving force as the Warriors won their first NBA championship in 40 years in 2015. He’s quite possibly the best sharpshooter the NBA has ever seen, and at a ripe 27 years old, he’s still improving. That’s ridiculous.

When the Warriors picked Curry seventh overall in the 2009 draft out of Davidson, there were a lot of questions as to how his game would translate to the NBA level. Sure he could shoot a lot, but that doesn’t always translate to the highest level. Not only did it carry over for Curry, he got better and better.

In his fourth season, Curry broke the NBA record for most three-pointers made in a season. In his sixth season, he broke his own record. He’s on pace to break that record again, and completely shatter Ray Allen‘s career three-point record a few years down the road. The only player in Warriors’ franchise history to post a higher player efficiency rating than Curry’s 28.0 in 2014-2015 is Wilt Chamberlain, which isn’t a half-bad name to be behind.

Curry’s highlight reel, which he adds to night after night, is one of the most glorious things that a person could watch. Circus shots, half-court buzzer beaters, ridiculous passes behind-the-back are the norm for Curry. He makes it look so easy. Click on over to YouTube and get lost in hours of Curry making his sport look like child’s play.
