Stephen Curry Top 10 Plays of 2014-2015 Season

IMPACT ON THE COURT

Stephen Curry isn't just another average NBA player. He plays the game like no other. He can and would rather shoot a 3-pointer with barely an inch of space around him then try to drive for a layup like most elite point guards in the league. Because of his precision 3-point shooting he is able to stretch the floor making it easier for his teammates to cut to get open and making harder for the defense to slide to open shooters. With his combination of dead eye shooting accuracy, his ankle breaking ball handles, and his impossible to stop tear drop lay up Stephen Curry is the hardest player to guard in the game today.

IMPACT OFF THE COURT

As great of a player is Stephen Curry is on the court he is as a person off the court. In 2013 Curry joined the global fight against malaria by joining the Nothing But Nets Foundation. Nothing But Nets is a non-for-profit organization that works with other organizations like Red Cross, Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, NBA Cares, and People of The United Methodist Church to collect donations to supply malaria nets for people who need them. Malaria is a very common disease in the continent of Africa that is transmitted through parasites like mosquitos that result in fever, vomiting, diarrhea, and can result in death. In 2013 there was 163-million cases of malaria in Africa alone. In Africa there is also a large amount of people with HIV and people who have HIV have a higher chance of recurrent malaria episodes. To help prevent this torturous life threatening disease Stephen Curry has vowed that for every 3-pointer that he makes he will donate three malaria nets to the Nothing But Nets Foundation. In 2013 when he first began working with the Nothing But Nets foundation Stephen Curry donated a total of 816 malaria nets to people in need. By donating to Nothing But Nets Stephen Curry has saved hundreds of lives which makes his just as great of a person off the court as he is on the court.
