Wiggins Iguodala, not the 2022 Final MVP Curry is better at attacking than Curry, so he is bombarded with absurd remarks on the left
JR Smith (uncredited) criticized Stephen Curry (Golden State).
Smith was a shooting guard who played in the NBA from 2004 to 2020, recording 12.4 points and 3 assists in his career.
He is called the ‘reverse seat’. Instead of shooting just before the end of the 2018 NBA Finals, he chose “reverse driving” and is still strongly remembered by fans. At that time, he was given a “MVP” chance by his opponents’ home fans.
Smith recently posted a post on his SNS, saying, “It’s my view of a three-point shot.”
“A three-point shot is more ‘flutteringly efficient’ than a two-point shot,” Smith said. “The data that proves my point is Stephen Curry’s game record. His shot accuracy is like a roller coaster, and Curry with such ups and downs is considered the best shooter of all time. This is why he reached the final four times and won only one final MVP. This is the fact.”
In fact, with the development of sports statistics, the expected value of 3-point shots has proved to be much more efficient than 2-point shots. However, at the same time, it is natural that the success rate fluctuates because it is a type of shot that is greatly affected by the condition of the day. Smith’s first claim to be up and down efficient is hardly wrong.
However, what became controversial was the part mentioned later. As a basis for the fluctuating efficiency of the three-point shot, he suggested that Curry has only won one final MVP award. Curry won the championship in 2015, 2017, 2018, and 2022, the first time in 2022 to win the Final MVP. Andre Iguodala and Kevin Durant won the final MVP three times earlier.
There was controversy when Iguodala won the MVP in the 2015 final. Opinions were divided among local U.S. experts. It is also true that Iguodala showed good defense and played 16.3 points and 5.8 rebounds per game in offense. However, there were far more people who believed that the final MVP should have been given to Curry, who scored 26 points and 6.3 assists per game in the same series and played the role of the engine of the attack.
Smith’s SNS was followed by fans pointing this out. More fans argue that the number of final MVPs does not prove the “dive efficiency” of three-point shots.
Smith then left a ridiculous comment. In a retweet, “Iguodala in the final showed better performance in both offense and defense than Curry, and KD (Kevin Durant) was KD. “I don’t mean to disparage Curry, but Andrew Wiggins should have won the final MVP in the 2022 final,” he claimed 사설토토추천
Some Smith supporters also turned their backs on Iguodala when he said he had better offense than Curry and that Wiggins should have been the final MVP. “Iguodala is better at attacking than Curry?” There were 14,000 likes in the comment, “What game did you watch?” and 13,000 likes in the comment, “I heard you went to college, but you didn’t learn anything.” Analysts say it’s just a far-fetched argument to criticize Curry
