Where Steph, Fox rank among NBA's best finishers at rim


Gone are the days when Warriors star Steph Curry solely was known as a jump shooter.

The 35-year-old finished the 2022-23 NBA season as an elite finisher around the rim, trailing only Kings star De'Aaron Fox in shooting percentage at the rim among guards with more than 150 attempts.

Fox nailed a blistering 76.5 percent of his attempts at the rim while Curry sank 72.9 percent of his 170 attempts.

Both Curry and Fox also were among the best in the league in 3-point shooting and finishing at the rim among all players.

The above chart displays that Curry and fellow Splash Brother Klay Thompson are elite shooters from behind the arc, as is to be expected, with Indiana Pacers sharpshooter Buddy Hield close behind the two.

Meanwhile, Fox was second only Milwaukee Bucks star Giannis Antetokounmpo in finishing at the rim, showing just how adept the 25-year-old is when it comes to finishing at close range.

Although Fox and Curry play the game in different ways, there's no denying they are among the best at what they do for a reason.
