I am not disputing what he did in high school


But watching him in both sports in college, he did not look like a video game caricature running circles around everyone like Vick did in college. Then he did in the NFL. Curry received every high school accolade there was, and I'm sure duly deserved. But watching him in college in both sports, it was like everyone caught up to him by then, whereas guys like Vick and Iverson kept head and shoulders above their peers in terms of sheer athleticism. By the time he reached the NFL, Curry looked like a fairly average guy on the field.

I think it was one of those cases where he was purely better than his peers in high school, with hardly any comparison, but they caught up with him in college. He just didn't scare me anywhere near as much as, say a guy like Vick, when he stepped on the field, and definitely not when he stepped on the court. Carolina had plenty of badder dudes on the court. Even at 30+, Vick was a better athlete than 95% of the guys on the field around him.
