Stephen Curry recently gave an interview to the medium Yahoo! Sports where he has spoken about the news of his own and about some of the hardest moments of his sports career. Those from Oakland are, above all, NBA leaders with a record of 18-2, and this next morning they will play an important duel against the Phoenix Suns, who have 16 consecutive wins and are on their heels for the leadership of the West.
“Well, why would they think we could be like this now?” Said Stephen Curry. “We had some of the worst possible situations with Kevin Durant’s injury and his subsequent departure, and with Klay and his Achilles heel. Our basketball brand seemed different from who we were on the court, “he explained.
After seven consecutive seasons in the playoffs, five appearances in the NBA Finals and three championship rings, the tie against the Raptors left them very touched with the injuries of Durant and Thompson, and later the departure of Durántula to the Brooklyn Nets.
Against this backdrop, Steve Kerr’s men have been absent from the postseason in the last two seasons with 15 and 39 wins respectively.
“Seeing the NBA Bubble from the outside was the lowest point for me in these two years. There was a part of me that felt like I needed to air out a bit, and another part of me missed being on that stage. It was the first time in seven years that he hadn’t made the playoffs. We know that everyone had their own experience at the Bubble, but I would have loved to be there competing. I would say that was the lowest point in my basketball experience because I was missing it. And that’s what I like to do, “he concluded.
The truth is that both the Warriors and Stephen Curry have started the course like a shot. The All-Star point guard is averaging 28.6 points, 5.8 rebounds and 6.8 assists with 42% in triples.
