At what point does the kid not live up to expectations?
Will that ever happen?
Because Stephen Curry went wild again Saturday, scoring 44 points against another high-major program in Davidson's 72-67 victory over North Carolina State while advancing his legend just a little bit more as LeBron James watched from courtside, argued with officials and enjoyed himself just as much as everybody else in the arena (except for those with Wolfpack rooting interests). It was remarkable and exciting and the type of thing even folks focused on football this weekend took a moment to take in, and if there's a more appealing player in the country I've yet to see him.
We can debate whether Curry is a better college player than Tyler Hansbrough.
Or more valuable to his team than Blake Griffin
Or a better prospect than James Harden.
But what we can't argue is that Curry is the most exciting player in the nation, the guy most likely to make you punch the guy beside you in the arm, jump off the couch and laugh and laugh and laugh, because there is no argument against to be had. He's just spectacular in that way. And the best part is that the Stephen Curry Show's next stop will be New York's Madison Square Garden, where he and his Davidson teammates will on Tuesday face West Virginia on the biggest basketball stage in the world.
Should be fun times.
If only LeBron could be there.
