What makes him smooth: His pure jump shot and underrated passing ability
Right now, Stephen Curry makes the cut as the NBA MVP for the 2014-15 season. And you know what? He totally deserves it. Curry is very much still the sweet-shooting, long-distance bomber that he’s been throughout his career. The major difference now is that he’s added some impressive new skills to his game, such as the ability to get to the rim and finish in traffic with ease. Curry has also made some absolutely ridiculous highlight reel passes. The point guard in Curry has been refining his technique seemingly since birth, and it shows on the court when he continuously buries the tough shots and finds his teammates from near-impossible angles.
