Stephen Curry‘s all-NBA performance this year has little precedent. His combination of scoring, shooting efficiency, passing and ball control has been incredible.
Here is what Curry is doing this season:
24 points/game, 60% true shooting, 40% assist rate, 16% turnover
The most similar season I could find in NBA history is from 1991. Phoenix Suns point guard Kevin Johnson was leading his team to 55 wins while on his way to 2nd team all-NBA. Here is K.J.’s ’91:
22 points/game, 60% true shooting, 41% assist rate, 16% turnover
It’s interesting to note that Johnson was such a great shooter despite not making three’s. How did he do it? In 1991 he made the fifth most foul shots in the NBA.
