1 NBA Defender Who Gives Stephen Curry Most Trouble

1 NBA Defender Who Gives Stephen Curry Most Trouble

Stephen Curry is 3-time champion, 2-time MVP and the greatest shooter in NBA history.

His resume is beyond reproach.

That said, he isn’t completely ungradable.

One player in particular has enjoyed a decent amount of success against him in recent years.

That player? Dillon Brooks of the Memphis Grizzlies.

“I love going against Steph,” Brooks said this past week.

“It’s just challenging to me physically and mentally to be able to, you know, be so concerned and detail-oriented about him. Because if you have one mistake he won’t let you up, but it’s just great to come into this building (Chase Center), specially the crowd you know, the crowd is in the top five in this league for sure and can’t wait to play tomorrow.”

During a postgame interview session with Draymond Green, a reporter brought up Brooks as someone who tends to give Curry a lot of trouble.

Green dismissed that notion.

“I don’t think nobody in the world likes to defend Steph. So I ain’t buying that sh— I mean stuff. But, you know, he (Steph Curry) got it going. You know, you get a couple of easy ones there in that first quarter,” Green said.

“You know, sitting on top of it, a couple of layups, see the ball go through the rim and then from there you just got it going…”

That being said, the stats don’t lie. Brooks really does give Curry problems:

Of course, when you’re arguably the best guard in the world – there’s only so much defenders can do.

The Warriors are an interesting team to keep an eye on. Between Klay Thompson’s return and the blockbuster trade they’re frontrunners for, they could make some legit noise come playoff time.

Will this be the year Curry wins his fourth career title? Time will tell.
