Stephen Curry is expected to a top NBA players in the coming years despite being at 34 years old, per Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr.
“When you talk about hand-eye and balance and core strength, Steph’s one of the greatest athletes on Earth. All that stuff matters,” Kerr said (h/t CBS Sports)
His ability to keep himself at such a high level, it’s not an accident. He’s both really, kind of gifted naturally, but also totally committed. I fully expect him to have a lot more great years.”
Fresh off a championship and a Finals MVP award, Stephen Curry will be among the top players in the NBA this season.
“You’re talking about athletes who are ferociously committed to their craft, to their body, to their conditioning. Every single aspect of Steph’s day, he’s devoted to being at the top of his game for as long as he can,” Kerr noted.
Curry is coming off the worst shooting season of his career, which would be considered a great year for any mere mortal.
He averaged 25.5 points per game on 44/38/92 shooting splits. However, Curry averaged 31.2 points on 48/44/86 splits in a six-game series triumph over Boston.
The Warriors aim to successfully defend their title and will rely on the Big-3 of Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green.
Jordan Poole and Andrew Wiggins are also in the team that beat the odds last season to win the title.
The Warriors missed Gary Payton II and Otto Porter Jr. to free agency last offseason.
