Warriors Fans Should Be Excited About What Stephen Curry Just Said

Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry is coming off a historic season that made him the first unanimous regular-season MVP in league history. He also broke numerous records along the way. The two-time reigning MVP has his eyes set on achieving even greater feats.

“I want to get better. I want to be better than I was last year,”Curry told CSN Bay Area on Tuesday. “That’s going to be the same, regardless if KD was here or not.”

Curry is coming off a season that saw him lead the league 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 while making 402 three-pointers, which shattered his previous NBA record of 286.

Although Curry has the ability to match those type of incredible numbers again, it will be quite difficult to do so with Kevin Durant in the mix. That will mean that the ball will be in his hands far less with another proven scorer on the Warriors. What it will result in is a noticeable dip in production from all the players in a similar fashion to what the Miami Heat experienced in LeBron James’ first year with the team. It may be encouraging to hear that Curry has that mind frame, but it won’t be possible with Durant now in the fold.
