As Curry said, every star player in the league has gotten crossed over once or twice. It’s part of the game at this point.
Before the 2019-20 season was suspended, Curry and the Warriors had the worst record in the NBA. That’s mostly because the two-time MVP was only in the lineup for five games. Curry broke his left hand in the fourth game of the season and was forced to undergo not one, but two procedures.
Prior to the season getting suspended, Curry was averaging 20.8 points, 5.2 rebounds and 6.6 assists for the Warriors. The Dubs were on their way to a lottery pick and missing the playoffs for the first time in the Steve Kerr era.
Paul and the Thunder, meanwhile, were surprisingly ahead of the Houston Rockets in the Western Conference standings. The Rockets traded Paul to the Thunder in the Russell Westbrook trade. Most pundits thought the Rockets would be near the top of the West standings, while OKC would be at the bottom.
However, the Thunder were in fifth place in the West, while the Rockets were in sixth. For his part, Paul was putting up 17.7 points, 4.9 rebounds and 6.8 assists for OKC.
