If you haven't heard by now, Stephen Curry, the point guard for the Golden State Warriors, is incredible. His performance last Saturday night was so impressive that it had other NBA players tweeting about it. In case you missed it, here is Curry getting the last word in an all-night back-and-forth between the Warriors and Thunder.

It is obvious that the Golden State Warriors are the best team in the NBA this season. With an unprecedented 53-5 record they have a chance to break the best regular season record, currently held by the 1996 Bulls of 72-10. Some argue that the Warriors' dominance is not good for the NBA. Critics of Dub Nation say that it is boring watching Golden State play when they know it will be a blowout.

But let's look at it from another angle. The Warriors would not be where they are today without the amazing play of their point guard Stephen Curry. Curry is undoubtedly the best player in the NBA this season. His range and flashy play have fans captivated with every position. So, is Steph Curry and his dominance bad for the NBA?

Curry has proven this year that he easily has the best range in the NBA. Many are already declaring him as the best shooter of all time. Perhaps one of the main draws people have towards Curry is that he has fun doing what he does. But let's be honest, Curry is more than just a shooter. He is an incredible ball handler, passer, and scorer.

All of these attributes are great and important for a great player like Steph Curry, but does his dominance mean that he is bad for the NBA? The answer has to be no. While many people think that the Warriors' dominance is bad for the NBA, and that is somewhat understandable, there is no way that Curry is bad for the sport.

Yes, we will most likely see an influx of players in the next 5-10 years that like to shoot more than players in the past. Curry will be people's role model, and they want to be able to shoot from anywhere on the floor. This may hinder talent in the future, but there is no way to know that. However, as far as I'm concerned, he is very good for the NBA.

The NBA is a stars league. Most fans don't follow just one team. They follow stars. That's why Kobe is still popular. The Lakers are terrible, but no one cares. Fans love Kobe Bryant. It's not that The Cleveland Cavaliers suddenly gained fans whenever LeBron James returned. Fans just want to cheer for James. Curry is the same way. Curry is captivating to fans. People love him and want him to score 50 every night and do something amazing. Most of you may not care about basketball, but you clicked on this link because you saw Steph Curry and it interested you. So, yes: Steph Curry is very good for the NBA.
