Stephen Curry has been one of the best offensive players in the league and, certainly, one of the toughest to guard. The Golden State Warriors superstar named the five toughest defenders he faced in his career so far.


“Jrue Holiday, Avery Bradley, Tony Allen when he was in the league. There are guys that have a knack for being in the right place at the right time, being physical, studying your game, and knowing your moves,” Curry mentionted in a recent interview.

“Never in my mind are you scared that they’re going to stop you. But at the same time, you gotta go harder that particular night or play a little smarter. Maybe like Pat Bev and the antics, you’ve gotta deal with that. But I think those guys exist and they get paid to defend the best guys in the league.”

Curry has been an offensive threat on and off the ball and that makes him one of the hardest matchups for any defender.

This season, the best shooter of all-time is averaging MVP-type of numbers putting up a staggering 31 points, 5.9 assists and 5.6 rebounds per game.
