Vince Carter On How Dangerous Stephen Curry Is: “He Just Knows How To Catch You Sleeping.”

Stephen Curry is one of the most influential players of all time. The Golden State Warriors superstar changed the game of basketball in the last decade, altering the way teams score, and making the NBA a 3-point competition. 

Curry is a global star that keeps increasing his legend in the association. After a couple of hard seasons for the Warriors, they are now ready to compete for the championship again. They're sitting at 4-0 for the first time since the 2015/16 season, where Curry became the first and only unanimous MVP in league history. 

The Chef is torching teams this campaign, recording big games against direct rivals like the Los Angeles Lakers and Los Angeles Clippers. Even after 12 years in the league, showing his talents on a nightly basis, this player keeps impressing people. 

Recently, NBA legend Vince Carter perfectly described how impactful and dangerous this man is, even when rivals think he won't be a problem. According to Landon Buford, the Toronto Raptors, New Jersey Nets icon praised Curry's catch and shoot, saying it can change games in his favor. 

“He just knows how to catch you sleeping.” 

Even when he doesn't have good games, Curry punishes rivals. He claimed he had a bad game in the season opener yet recorded his first triple-double since 2016. This man is on a mission this season and even without trying so hard, he's doing a lot of good things on the floor. 

The Warriors are in a privileged position now, sending a message to the rest of the Western Conference. The Californians have a terrific leader in Curry and look very dangerous, even though they are still missing Klay Thompson and James Wiseman on the lineup. Once these two return to action, things will get a lot harder for the rest of the conference. 

In four games, the point guard averages 29.0 PPG, 8.3 RPG, and 6.3 APG, shooting 43.4% from the field and 40.0% from beyond the arc.
