Stephen Curry, Golden State Warriors
Watching Stephen Curry play against LeBron James would be the best visualization of “David vs. Goaliath” if there ever was one; and we all know how that story turned out. There is no player in the NBA today — if not in NBA history — who can get off a jump shot faster and with more precision than Curry. He can seemingly shoot it from anywhere on the court, and make it with startling regularity. Even a player like James can’t cover him perfectly 100% of the time, and before James could try to rough up Curry (like most other teams try), Curry would only need fractions of a second to launch his sniper-deadly shot.
