Team: Golden State Warriors
2012-13 stats: 22.9 PPG, 4.0 RPG, 6.9 APG, 1.6 SPG
The darling of the 2012-13 playoffs, Stephen Curry has officially landed among the NBA's elite players. Possessing the kind of jump shot that should be the envy of anybody who has ever touched a ball, Curry led the NBA in three pointers both made (272) and attempted (600) last year, finishing third in percentage (.453) and setting the record for threes made in a regular season. After reaching such success during the Warriors' thrilling playoff run (his 44-point game against San Antonio was one of the playoffs' best individual performances), how he handles the burden of expectation will give us a nice measurement of how good Curry really is. And now with Iguodala as a legit No. 2, Golden State has high expectations this year.
