4. How Will Other Star Guards Compare?

More from Golden Gate Sports

While other high-level point guards all rely on athleticism and quickness to some extent (Westbrook, Paul, Kyrie Irving, John Wall, Damian Lillard, James Harden, Kemba Walker), Curry does not.

This means Curry will not have to drastically alter his game to remain effective, unlike the others.

Harden and Lillard are the most likely to remain effective as they also have strong gravity, however, there are still aspects to both their games which rely on strength or agility that they will not be able to execute as effectively as they age.

This is just the current batch of point guards, however, there is a new group of rising stars including the likes of Trae Young, De’Aaron Fox, D’Angelo Russell, and Donovan Mitchell. Curry will not be the only player still performing at a high level from the one spot.
