            Dude when will people learn!? Let that man Steph do Steph. Everytime he is criticized he comes back and shows you why he is the Warriors best asset. No disrespect to KD at all, but this is Stephs team. Was before Kevin, and will be after he goes wherever he goes. Shooters gonna shoot.

                    Steph Curry has a better take it to the rim when shots arent falling game than Dame. Klay more steady than CJ. But playoffs are a different animal

                      From me watching this is 6 days ago Curry has a jammed finger he is still shooting very well better then most SGs so dude you need to update this video he’s shooting around 30 percent through the playoffs He doesn’t take a lot due to he’s being doubled teamed at half court or rape defending him.

                            Lol, curry injury vs the clippers: not matter, he play again. But kd's injury vs the houston he can't play with that kind of injury, no i don't mean to insult kd, but does curry's injury is more vulnerable than kd's injury😂😂😂😅

                              I see your point on the technical side of the game but when it comes to crunch time they both rise up to the game.

                              I respect your technical point of view but basketball game is played with confidence and heart.

                                      dude, it's super simple. Before Curry's finger injury he was scoring at 70%TS and after his injury he was scoring at 50%TS.....what is the difference?

                                                I knew Curry was having a bad postseason so far but Lillard too?

                                                It seems the playoffs aren’t friendly to small, shoot-first point guards for the most part (Curry, Lillard, Kyrie, etc.)!

                                                  It’s nice you did a video on these two. How about an Kyrie Irving video tell us why he’s been garbage for the Celtics.

                                                        OK Mr. narrator how about if we call you out on the obvious was Steph Curry he dislocated her finger and he has a severely sprained ankle so don’t try and tell us all sorts of everything else is what the problem is he’s trying to recover from injury and don’t tell me it’s not a shooting hand and so it’s not affecting him I am playing ball for almost 50 years and you can attest to the fact that small injuries can have a large affect you’re trying to gloss over it is as if Steph Curry is just lost suddenly give me a break

Yeah he did great during our series but it’s been terrible now. Same thing has happened the last two seasons. Portland always chokes.

                                                                  • Dean W

                                                                    • A P

                                                                              • Al's Chronicles

Just look up who are the most dominating forces in the finals, all strong SGs, Forwards and centers. Shooting PGs have no business dominating in the deep playoffs. Curry has been like this in every finals, the only reason he had decent stats was because he stat padded against the bench when the games were basically over or added no impact
