Warriors’ Stephen Curry says last year’s struggles were ‘way worse’ than this season’s
After the Dubs’ 115-111 loss to the Phoenix Suns, the two-time MVP is confident they will be able to overcome their recent slump, citing that what they’ve been through last season was way worse.

Golden State dealt with several injuries to key players last season, particularly Curry, who was dealing with an issue with his knee when the playoffs began. They eventually figured things out and won their second consecutive title.
This season, aside from the occasional shooting slumps and the inconsistencies of some of their bench players, the Dubs didn’t really experience a lot of issues. Their most prominent problem this year was the off-court dust-up between Draymond Green and Kevin Durant, which eventually has been settled.
It is normal for fans to be concerned about the Warriors, especially since a lot of teams have basically spent all season to construct a team that will be able to dethrone them. However, they are tried and tested. If they are struggling, they will surely find a way to figure things out.
Steph Curry’s words should bring confidence to the rest of the team and the fans, as well as a warning to the rest of the league.
The Warriors are still the champions, and unless someone can take advantage of their struggles well enough to dethrone them, no one can really count them out.
