Point Guard

Warriors: Stephen Curry, Toney Douglas, Nemanja Nedovic

Heat: Mario Chalmers, Norris Cole

Miami Heat point guard Mario Chalmers likes to think he is one of the better point guards in the NBA, but he really isn’t on the same level as Stephen Curry.  Chalmers is a great shooter from beyond the arc, but he isn’t even the best point guard on his team.

Curry easily has Chalmers beat in the three-point shooting department, but Chalmers also fails to stack up to Curry in the other important statistical categories.

Statistics aren’t everything, but Chalmers doesn’t stack up to Curry even if statistics are ignored.  If point guards are to be compared, it would be better to compare Curry to LeBron, but that wouldn’t be a fair comparison either.

The bottom line here is that Curry is an elite point guard while Chalmers is a nice addition to a championship-calibur team.

    “Ray Allen has made more three pointers than anyone else in the history of the NBA.” Stephen Curry broke that record last year! How are you going to write an article about the warriors and forget that he broke the record last season?

      Stephen Curry broke the *single season* record. Ray Allen still holds the lifetime record with 2857. Curry has 644 currently.
