Stephen Curry says he just had the best summer training of his career
Three-time NBA champion, two-time MVP and five-time All-Star Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry says he’s coming off his best summer training session of his career.
Curry averaged 26.1 points, 6.1 assists and 5.1 rebounds during the 2017-18 season. He warriors capped it off by beating the Cleveland Cavaliers in the NBA Finals for the second time in three years. Curry only appeared in 51 games last season because of recurring injuries.
However, he claims that the summer of 2018 was very good to him.
“Oh, for sure,” said Curry to the 95.7 The Game radio show. “This has been a great summer. I’ve done a lot off the court in terms of life experiences. But it’s been the best summer I’ve had in terms of my training (and) my preparation for a season. Now 30 years old — which is crazy — this is my 10th year in the league.
Since Kevin Durant joined the Warriors, Curry’s chances of winning another MVP Award have been drastically reduced. However, his team hasn’t achieved anything short of a championship with Durant on board, so he’s doing just fine. He just doesn’t have to do as much as he used to.
“Trying to continue to evolve my game as long as I can. Definitely the trajectory is still going up in terms of what I expect from myself out there on the floor,” Curry continued.
Stephen Curry is already considered the greatest shooter of all time and one of the league’s most elusive ball handlers. It’s scary to think what else he could have added to his game this summer. Above all else, he hopes to have a healthy season and to contribute as much as he can to the dynasty the Warriors have built.
