Steph Curry and J. Cole

Everyone is aware of the most obviously impressive things J. Cole and Steph Curry can do: rapping and scoring (specifically, shooting), respectively. But they've got special talents beyond that, too. Curry's passing is often overlooked, but he's one of the best distributors in the NBA and is among the league leaders in assists. Cole, in addition to his prowess on the mic, is an accomplished producer whose beat-making skills rarely garner much shine.
