Strengths: Huge at 290 he fills the lane and knows how to use his body runs the floor well though not a speedster .... Is the most mobile, and agile player his size that I have just about ever seen .... Physical inside player draws contact and gets to the free throw line .... Good hands catches most passes thrown into post after getting it he can power the ball to the basket or use his variety of post moves ... Explosive leaper gets off the floor quickly and can dunk with authority .... Unlike many young power players Curry doesn't struggle from the free throw line ... Due to his strength and surprisingly quick jumping ability Curry can rebound with the best of them .... Limitless potential the only thing that could stop Curry from achieving star status is him...

Weakness: Height although he is listed at 6-11 he looks about 6-10 so one has to wonder will he continue to grow and what position will he play power forward or center ... Has not always been in the best of shape one has to wonder if he has the drive to keep himself in shape... Must continue to watch his weight ( Curry did lose 30 pounds this season) as he has a tendency to wavier a few pounds during the season .... Looks lost when he is 14 feet from the basket needs to develop some moves facing the basket... Has had some games where he has looked sluggish and uninterested in the action although to his credit this usually didn't happen all that often but has happened enough to worry some scouts ...
