Warriors star Steph Curry gets honest on building ‘identity’ at Chase Center
The Golden State Warriors enjoyed boatloads of success at Oracle Arena, winning several NBA titles and solidifying themselves as a dynasty at the time. Since moving to the Chase Center though, the Dubs haven’t exactly had the same success. Stephen Curry is making sure the narrative changes.
After a big win over the Portland Trail Blazers on Friday night, the Warriors improved to 9-0 in the month of November on home court and according to Steph, it was a huge step in this team creating an identity at their new arena. Via Monte Poole of NBC Bay Area:
“We started the season talking about trying to create an identity here because everybody compares it to Oracle and our history (in Oakland). But this is a different place. And you have to establish a different presence and identity and atmosphere here. And we have to do our part to win games.”
Needless to say, the Warriors are doing just that. This is their third season at the Chase Center, going a dreadful 8-26 in Year One then improving to 25-11 last season on their home floor. So far in 2021/22, Golden State is an impressive 11-1 when playing in front of Dubs Nation.
While the Warriors boast the best record in the Association at 17-2, winning ballgames at home is absolutely crucial. There’s undoubtedly a belief from the fans that their squad can go all the way this season and Curry and Co. are thriving off that energy. Hopefully, they can bring a title to the Chase Center for the first time in 2022 and build a legacy here.
