Since there was a lot of positive feedback in regards to ranking Ben Simmons as a point guard, it seems only appropriate that rank each of the Philadelphia 76ers‘ starters. As ranking them in order, Seth Curry is the next guy up.

It’s crazy to consider that Curry was just a journeyman just a few seasons ago. Despite being the son of Dell Curry and the brother of future Hall of Famer Stephen Curry, the youngest Curry had to work his way into the league. He started out in the G-League before getting into the league and didn’t get into a regular rotation until the past four years.

Curry ranks in terms of stats

“…he’s eighth in the whole NBA. ”

Now he’s a starter for a contender and is one of the best shooters in the NBA. This season Curry is averaging 12.5 points, 2.0 rebounds, 2.9 assists, and 0.9 steals. He’s also shooting 46.9 percent from the floor, 44.8 percent from the 3-point line, and 92.3 percent from the free throw line.

In terms of 3-point percentage, he’s eighth in the whole NBA. Luke Kennard and Paul George are the only two shooting guards ahead of Curry in 3-point percentage with George being the only other starting shooting guard leading the Sixers starter. Curry is 17th in scoring and 18th in assists among the starting shooting guards in this list as well.

Before getting into these rankings, it should be noted that there are two players who were on the point guard rankings who will be in these rankings as well due to position or lineup changes.
