Steve Nash talks Steph Curry: how much better can he get?

nash-steph-curryIt is obvious that Golden State’s Stephen Curry is the best shooter in the NBA. Moreover, the league hasn’t seen a shooter like him in a long long time. Curry is putting up fantastic numbers, his team is looking for its second straight NBA title, and the league just watches on.

Former NBA star Steve Nash, who is also a “part-time player-development consultant” for the Warriors, says Curry continues to get better and better.

“[He] just gets better and better,” Nash told San Jose Mercury News. “Game gets sharper. And I still think he’s going to understand things more clearly as well. His skill level improves, which is kind of alarming.”

“He’s maybe as skilled a player as we’ve ever had in this game,” Nash said.

Former NBA star also said that Curry’s skill level is already prodigious and it keeps getting better.

“Since the experience and understanding will continue to grow, it’s pretty remarkable to think about the heights he can get to,” said Nash.

“He’s in the prime of his career and will be for a few years and the way he’s improving and the level he’s playing at is… I think he’s unlike anyone else. His ability to make shots and still handle the play-making duties is historic,” Nash said.

While a lot of people in the NBA world are thinking about the Warriors surpassing the historic 1995-96 Chicago Bulls’ record of 72-10, Nash doesn’t compare Curry with the legendary Bull Michael Jordan.

“I wouldn’t compare him to Michael Jordan–I wouldn’t compare anybody to Michael,” Nash said a little while ago. “But I would say Steph is turning into a historical category of his own, in a way.”

Steve Nash was a 2-time NBA MVP and participated in 8 All-Star games.

He led the NBA in assists in six seasons, and in assists per game in 5 seasons. He played a total of 1217 NBA games (started in 1053) during 18 seasons, for Phoenix Suns, Dallas Mavericks and LA Lakers.

Nash holds career averages of 14.3 ppg, 8.5 apg, and 31.3 mpg. Nash shot over 90 percent from freethrow line and 49 percent from the field during regular seasons.
