3. Gravity is the Key

This is not the same for Stephen Curry. He can use that step to get into the lane and distribute or go to the cup and finish in a variety of ways.

This is all because of Curry’s incredible gravity. Redick and Korver have this same gravity out at the three-point line but as soon as they step inside, the defense is less concerned.

For Curry this is different; he has gravity wherever he is in the offensive half of the court.

As long as Curry retains his unique shooting ability from anywhere on the floor, he will retain his gravity.

This will allow him to find his passing angles for teammates to get easy shots, and also to get the step on defenders on screens.
