Point Guard

Warriors: Stephen Curry, Toney Allen, Nemanja Nedovic

Grizzlies: Mike Conley, Jerryd Bayless, Nick Calathes

Comparing Mike Conley and Stephen Curry is difficult because their specialties lie in different areas.  As mentioned above, Conley is a defensive presence; Curry lights it up on the offensive end.

That being said, Conley is a capable scorer on offense and can dish out the assists as well.  Curry isn’t as bad of a defender as people think – he is actually quite average.

So, who is better?  The answer has to be Stephen Curry.  Conley is a great player, but he just isn’t someone to build a team around.  He is a good piece to add to a good team.

Last season, Stephen Curry became a borderline superstar in the NBA.  He finally had an offseason that didn’t require rehab, so his game should soar to new heights next season.

Mike Conley isn’t easily replaceable, but he isn’t one of a kind, either.  Curry has a shooting touch like the league has never seen before.  He is universally known as the best shooter in the league and he might go down as the best shooter of all time.

    I didn’t know the Warriors signed Tony Allen during free agency! And he’s playing point guard now too?!
