Steve Kerr Rips Stephen Curry When Asked About This

The Golden State Warriors just made a historic comeback from a 3-1 series playoff deficit in the Western Conference Finals against the Oklahoma City Thunder. Along the way, Warriors star Stephen Curry has received his fair share of criticism especially after becoming the first player in league history to be named the unanimous regular-season MVP. Head coach Steve Kerr jumped in on the action with his own witty comment about his All-Star guard’s toughness following Game 7 of the Western Conference Finals.

Curry has become an easy target in this regard because of his well-documented injury history that includes a pair of ankle surgeries. He has also suffered a couple of leg injuries in this year’s playoffs that forced him to miss a handful of games. All of this combined with his size at 6-foot-3 and 180 lbs makes it reasonable to question his long-term durability.

Despite that, the 28-year-old has performed like the best player in the league over the last two years. He has capped it off with a historic 2015-16 regular season where he led the NBA in scoring with a career-high 30.1 points on 50.4 percent shooting from the field, including 45.4 percent from 3-point range along with 6.7 assists and 5.4 rebounds. He was the first player in league history to average 30 points in less than 35 minutes per game throughout an entire season. Curry also made 402 three-pointers, which completely shattered his previous NBA record of 286.
