Warriors’ Stephen Curry on following in Kobe Bryant, Dirk Nowitzki, Tim Duncan’s footsteps
Stephen Curry wants to spend his entire NBA career with the Golden State Warriors, just like Kobe Bryant, Dirk Nowitzki and Tim Duncan did with the Los Angeles Lakers, Dallas Mavericks and San Antonio Spurs, respectively.
During an interview with Zach Frydenlund of Complex, Curry talked about following in Bryant, Nowitzki and Duncan’s footsteps.
“1,000 percent. Like I said, things change quickly. But that is definitely on my mind in terms of what we’ve…this is going in my 12th year. And what we’ve accomplished, and establishing this culture here, playing for these fans and our ownership and all the way down. So I’d love to be in that club when it’s all said and done,” Stephen Curry said about playing his entire NBA career with the Warriors.
“You think about the legends that have not only played for [one team] their whole career, but achieving so much success. And had a longevity about it that is something to strive for in terms of getting the most out of this game and doing it for one organization, one fan base. So we’ll see what happens.”
Since getting drafted by the Warriors in 2009 with the seventh overall pick, Curry has carved out a Hall of Fame career. The 32-year-old is a two-time MVP, three-time champion and the greatest shooter in NBA history.
Curry has averaged 23.5 points, 4.5 rebounds and 6.6 assists per game with the Warriors during the regular season.
Kobe Bryant and Tim Duncan are already in the Hall of Fame, while Dirk Nowitzki will join them one day. As for Curry, he still has a lot of basketball left in his career and wants to win another title with the Warriors, especially after what happened during the 2019-20 season.
The Warriors had the worst record in the NBA in 2019-20 before the season was suspended in March due to COVID-19. Curry only played in five games due to a broken left hand.
