Y'all confusing athleticism with worth. Right now, this year Steph is #1. He's been the best player in the playoffs this year. They lost their only all star player in Game 2 of the playoffs and still beat the #3 seed (CP3 didn't do that). He also is a much much better shooter and creater than Westbrook. And he's much harder to defend than Rondo so he's #1 right now. His only weakness is turnovers. If he gets those down a little he'll be #1 for a while.

1. Curry
2. CP3
3. Westbrook
Others: DWill, Rondo, Lawson (Kyrie and Wall haven't played enough to rank! Lillard is a rook so give it some time.)
Thank you

The people saying that he's not the best PG right now, are the same people who vote on the All Star game for players because of popularity and not skill.

after rondo, yes.


This bs. BX members saying he isn't playing better than Rondon right now, and Rondo wasn't even playing, same as Rose.

Its not about what they've done in the past, its about what they are doing now.

Bill Simmons has Curry #3 on his trade value list

3. Stephen Curry
I already shot my wad on Curry in last Friday's column (the extended March Madness analogy), so let's defend what seems like an overreaction of a ranking. I love Curry, you love Curry, everyone loves Curry … but third? Really? Third out of anyone???? When he was no. 16 just five weeks ago? The top seven reasons why Curry snared the no. 3 spot, in no particular order:

Reason No. 1: Along with Kevin Durant, he's 2013's co-winner of the Derrick Rose Award for "Guy Whose City Would Riot If He Were Traded." Right now, the Golden Gate Bridge has a better chance of being traded than Steph Curry.

Reason No. 2: Here's what it looks like when a 25-year-old guy is making The Leap.

Post All-Star (30 games): 26.0 PPG, 7.4 APG, 48% FG, 89% FT, 46% 3FG, 8.9 3FGA.
2013 Playoffs (8 games): 26.5 PPG, 8.9 APG, 46% FG, 91% FT, 43% 3FG, 9.0 3FGA

And it goes beyond stats — the Warriors are winning with a team that is built around Curry's offense and personality. You're always looking for teams with identities in May, and here's Golden State's identity: Opponents can't leave Curry or Thompson open for a 3-pointer for 48 solid minutes. They aren't just stretching the floor, they're bending it into something else. When you're that panicked about staying close to two shooters, it affects every decision you make. That can't happen without Curry, who has a.ssumed an even bigger offensive role with David Lee missing … only as Zach Lowe meticulously spelled out on Grantland today, Golden State's small-ball attack has taken off partly because he's handling the ball so much more. He's a franchise player now.21

Reason No. 3: It's only Year 4 for Curry. Reggie Miller peaked from Year 7 through Year 10. Ray Allen peaked in Year 5 and Year 6. Peja Stojakovic peaked in Year 6.22 Larry Bird peaked from Year 6 through Year 8. Dirk Nowitzki peaked from Year 7 through Year 9. Steve Nash peaked from Year 9 through Year 11. Glen Rice and Mitch Richmond peaked in Year 7. This is a roundabout way of telling you that Curry will probably create the 50-50-90 Club someday. It's in play.23 Along those same lines …

Reason No. 4: Mark Jackson is technically right — Golden State has the best shooting backcourt ever, although it's really the best long-range shooting backcourt ever. Check out the only 13 players (their best seasons only) who made at least 2.5 3s a game while (a) shooting at least 40 percent or higher, and (b) averaging at least 16.5 points per game (sorry, Damon Jones, Raja Bell and Kyle Korver).

Curry, 2013: 7.7 3FGA, 3.5 made, 45.3%
Allen, 2006: 8.4 3FGA, 3.4 made, 41.2%
Dennis Scott, 1996: 7.7 3FGA, 3.3 made, 42.5%
Peja, 2004: 6.8 3FGA, 3.0 made, 43.3%
Jason Richardson, 2008: 7.3 FGA, 3.0 made, 40.6%
Mike Miller, 2007: 7.1 3FGA, 2.9 made, 40.6%
Richmond, 1996: 6.8 3FGA, 2.8 made, 43.7%
Miller, 1997: 6.6 3FGA, 2.8 made, 42.7%
Rashard Lewis, 2008: 6.8 3FGA, 2.8 made, 40.9%
Danny Granger, 2009: 6.7 3FGA, 2.7 made, 40.4%
Thompson, 2013: 6.4 3FGA, 2.6 made, 40.1%
Paul Pierce, 2002: 6.3 3FGA, 2.6 made, 40.4%
Rice, 1997: 5.6 3FGA, 2.6 made, 47.0%

And the Warriors had TWO of those guys? And they still have room to improve? Yikes.

Reason No. 5: "Turn on the game, Steph Curry is heating up" is the single most exciting sports-related text you can send or receive right now. If I'm at dinner and you send me that text, I'm splitting toward the bar like a doctor who just had his "EMERGENCY!" beeper go off.

Reason No. 6: You can't come up with a better NBA match of "performer and crowd" than Curry and Oakland right now. They were meant for each other. It was destiny.

Reason No. 7:
Everyone else in our top 15 is getting paid the max next season, or damned close, except for Kyrie Irving (still on a rookie deal). Starting next year, Curry will make $44 million over the next four seasons.24 Translation: You're getting a franchise player for 45 percent off! It's like one of those Black Friday sales that Amazon has. That's the biggest reason Steph climbed to no. 3. Value plus performance plus results. He's like a fancy German car. I'm thoroughly enjoying the Steph Curry era.

We're tired of people overrating his a.ss after a few 30+ point games and some deep 3pt shots. Klay and Jack has played better than he has overall. Steph getting shut down by Danny Green

make no mistake... steph has been excellent... but still the elite class is usually reserved for year in, year out consistency.... not his fault due to injuries but that doesnt make him a bad player at all.

There are so many good to great PG's in the league its honestly hard to rank them now
