Warriors news: Stephen Curry on lasting legacy after he retires
After dealing with ankle injuries early in his career, Stephen Curry has played a huge part in morphing the Golden State Warriors into the juggernaut they are today. The point guard has endeared himself to fans with his lights out shooting performances and wizardry when handling the rock.
As a two-time NBA champion and MVP, Curry has already accomplished more than several players in his career. As a result, talk of his legacy is sure to come up and in an interview with Gerald Flores of Complex, Curry expressed his desire to remembered as a winner:
I’ve had ideas about it for sure. I want to be known as a winner. I want to be known as a champion. Obviously, I’ve accomplished a little bit, but I want to accomplish a lot more. I just want to play the right way and get the most out of my talent and impact people along the way to hopefully feel good about themselves and make them feel like they can do whatever they put their mind to. In the Bay Area, with how much the Warriors organization has changed, I feel like I had a lot to do with that too, but hopefully I’ve got another eight to ten years left.
Curry’s comments speak to his confidence and competitiveness as a player and bode well for the franchise after head coach Steve Kerr warned about complacency. It appears the sharpshooter is solely focused on racking up titles while he and his teammates still have a hold on the rest of the NBA.
The Warriors have done nothing except win at a high rate in the league and all signs point to another exceptional season. With Curry, Kevin Durant, Klay Thompson, and Draymond Green, Golden State’s core looks poised to repeat as champions during the 2017-2018 NBA season.
