Of all of the Golden State Warriors' core players, Tim Legler believes just one will suffer the most.
According to Tim Legler of ESPN during a Sirius XM NBA Radio interview, two-time MVP Stephen Curry will see the biggest dip in production:
"Probably Steph's, honestly. The guy averaged 30 points per game last year, he made 400 three's. He had one of the greatest offensive seasons any of us have ever seen. But think about that, 30 points per game, 400 made three's, five a night. There's no way he can average 30 points a game, or even close to that. I would not be surprised to see Steph Curry fall somewhere in the 22-point, 23-point range."
Legler's reasoning is that Curry's production was so extraordinary last season, that it is bound to decline this season. When you factor in that the team has added one of the top three basketball players in the world in Kevin Durant, who is a 27.4 career point-per-game scorer, his argument makes sense.
