Curry was immortalized in the Warriors’ run to the championship last season after an insane Finals series. While the team got contributions from every man in the roster, it was Curry that became the deciding factor in many of their wins. His Game 4 masterpiece stands out as one of the best carry jobs in Finals history.
Unfortunately for the Warriors, the road to defending their title next season has already hit some minor speedbumps. They lost a lot of key rotation players from last year’s run to free agency. Names such as Gary Payton II, Damion Lee, and Otto Porter Jr all found new homes in different teams.
Joe Lacob and Stephen Curry will figure out a way to make things work, though. At the very least, they were able to retain Kevon Looney, who was huge for them last playoffs. They also signed Donte DiVincenzo as the heir apparent to Gary Payton. We’ll see if the new Dubs can replicate their success from last season.
