  • A star was born: Revisiting Stephen Curry’s 54-point performance

    Madison Square Garden: Whether it be Michael Jordan dropping a double nickel or Reggie Miller scoring eight points in nine seconds, the Mecca of http://www.officialcanuckssale.com/r...sey-c-1_6.html Basketball Kevan Miller Womens Jersey has a flair Alexander Edler Jersey for the dramatic, the final boss through which All-Stars must pass to validate their status in the upper echelon of basketball’s all-time greats. No player could properly claim the moniker of legend without proving it under the brightest lights in basketball.Before the New York Knicks and Golden State Warriors squared off five years ago today, the basketball world viewed Stephen Curry as a novelty, an untraditional point guard who could shoot lights out, but nothing more.By the end of 48 minutes of basketball, Curry had blossomed into a star, baptised by basketball’s biblical entity that is The Garden. Curry was no longer merely the bright-eyed shooter trying to pull the Warriors to their first playoff appearance since the “We Believe” era.In that game, he showed off every trick up his sleeve, every tool at his disposal, and made one of the better defenses in the NBA look like a rec league squad, dropping 54 points in the most famous basketball arena on the planet.Curry didn’t just validate himself on the national level, but in the Bay Area itself.On Mar. 11, 2012, the same night in which Curry would suffer a season-ending ankle injury, fan-favorite Monta Ellis would play his last game as a Warrior.The Mississippi Bullet, along with Ekpe Udoh and Kwame Brown, would be shipped off to the Milwaukee Bucks in exchange for future starting center Andrew Bogut Authentic Roger Craig Jersey and former “We Believe” captain Stephen Jackson, http://www.officialrocketsonline.com...sey-c-1_6.html who would be flipped for Richard Jefferson and a conditional first-round pick.To say Warrior fans were upset would be the understatement to end all understatements. Many saw the decision to trade Ellis, the last remaining star from the “We Believe” playoff run, as the latest in a string of abhorrent decisions.Just to provide a small sample of the torture Warriors fans endured, look to the 1990s.In this decade alone, the front office killed Run TMC by trading Mitch Richmond, moved Chris Webber after one season, passed on Kobe Bryant in the 1996 NBA Draft, let Gregg Popovich walk and traded Vince Carter a mere 15 minutes after drafting him.http://www.seedszerverek.info/forumt...-be-guaranteed
