I have personally always been a bit wary of story points, since in the end, they just seem to get translated back into hours anyway. I have been witness to this several times, both as a developer and a Scrum Master. When you ask people to estimate in story points, preferably with the standard definition of 1 story point equals one day of productive work, then you invariably get estimates that when you multiply them by 8 are the same as they would have been if you had estimated in hours in the first place.
