1. Stephen Curry

Stephen Curry has emerged himself as one of the most prolific superstars in the league and he is just a joy to watch, especially shooting the ball. Curry’s shooting stroke is by far the best weapon in his arsenal, and he is now being courting as not just the best shooter in the NBA, but the best shooter in the league’s history.

Pretty big statement to be made about a guy who is just in his fourth year in the NBA, but hey, nobody’s arguing it. Curry is an outstanding shooter and his 272 made 3-pointers this season were good for the most in a single season. Pretty impressive.

That said, look for Curry to torch the San Antonio Spurs just like he did to the Denver Nuggets. The sharpshooting star point guard has scored 24.3 points per game and dished out 9.3 assists per game thus far in these 2013 NBA Playoffs. Curry has also hit nearly four 3-pointers a game this postseason, a statistic that really shows just how great of a shooter he is.

Curry wants to lead his team more than just past the first round, and fans should definitely keep an eye on him as he will look to put up a brilliant performance every game
