Klay Thompson’s dad, Mychal, says Stephen Curry is ‘going to have 500 3’s’ in 2019-20
Curry will be playing without Kevin Durant for the first time in three years. The two-time MVP will also be without Klay for majority of the season, as the All-Star guard will be recovering from his left ACL tear.
Mychal says Curry will be back to his MVP form next season and the Warriors will be right in the mix in the Western Conference playoff race.

Stephen Curry set an NBA record back in 2015-16 with 402 made 3-pointers. That’s the season he was voted as the unanimous MVP. Curry’s usage rate is going to be off the charts in 2019-20 with Klay Thompson out. It wouldn’t be a surprise if Curry leads the league in scoring.
As far as hitting 500 3-pointers, that’s going to be tough to do for the Warriors star. However, this is the first time since 2009-10 Curry won’t have Thompson in the backcourt with him. D’Angelo Russell will be able to take some of the offensive burden off of Curry’s shoulders, but the Warriors are going to need Steph to be in MVP form every night to have a chance to win in the rugged Western Conference.
This past season, Curry averaged 27.3 points, 5.3 rebounds and 5.2 assists, and he did that with Durant and Thompson by his side. Just imagine the video game-like numbers Curry is going to put up next season for the Warriors sans KD and Thompson. It’s going to be fun.
