Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry has been unique his whole career. As he becomes older, he may age better than most superstars.
Curry is unlike any other point guard we've seen in NBA history, with his unique shooting ability combined with his tight handle and sky-high basketball IQ.
Even a player as great as Chris Paul has not aged gracefully. His game is not based on pure athleticism but more his intelligence and ability to get to his midrange spots where he will make good decisions.
Curry has shown no signs of worsening shooting, averaging 43.7% from three-point range last season. With shooting like that, defenders must stay tight to Curry and they almost have to overplay him in order to guard him correctly.
Older shooters like J.J. Redick and Kyle Korver have not lost their shooting touch as they've aged.
For Curry this is different, he has gravity wherever he is in the offensive half of the court. As long as Curry retains his unique shooting ability from anywhere on the floor, he will retain his gravity.
While other high-level point guards all rely on athleticism and quickness to some extent (Westbrook, Paul, Kyrie Irving, John Wall, Damian Lillard, James Harden, Kemba Walker), Curry does not.
This means Curry will not have to drastically alter his game to remain effective, unlike the others.
Harden and Lillard are the most likely to remain effective as they also have strong gravity, however, there are still aspects to both their games which rely on strength or agility that they will not be able to execute as effectively as they age.
