Warriors’ Stephen Curry looking to ‘fine-tune his routes’ to Chase Center after being late
The Golden State Warriors played a preseason game against the Minnesota Timberwolves at their new home in the heart of the Bay Area. It’s the first time in a long while that the team is in the city, and most of its players never had to traverse SFO’s urban jungle for work.
Curry reportedly came to the venue later than expected and said something that a lot of San Franciscans can relate to:
Steph Curry, who went for 40 points tonight, said he was about 25-30 minutes later than usual to the new SF arena because of traffic: "Same as any Bay Area resident…Gotta fine tune my routes."

The Curry family is living in Atherton, CA, arguably the richest neighborhood in the entire country. The gated community is around 30 miles from Chase Center’s location at Mission Bay, and he has to take Route 101 to get to the stadium. Traffic there can take him from 35 minutes to more than an hour depending on the number of cars on the highway. If the traffic is exceptionally bad, he may have to find creative ways of getting to his destination.
Curry can be sure that the team and the fans will be more than willing to help him find his fastest route to the stadium. After all, the Bay Area would love nothing more than to see their man get to winning basketball games on time.
The Splash Brother has all the reasons in the world to not be late. Kevin Durant just left them in the summer, making the league the most open it has been in almost a decade. The Warriors will also be counting on him with Klay Thompson out until the tail end of the season.
However, it seems like he’s in form already after dumping 40 on the Wolves. Now, all he needs to do is find the most optimal route.
