Golden State Warriors superstar Stephen Curry turns 34 next month. The two-time MVP has played in the NBA long enough to be the star kids are asking for advice and being the advisor to the new generation.
During his match against the Houston Rockets, he faced Kevin Porter Jr. (21 years old) who asked Curry for direction during the game, and Jalen Green (19 years old) who he trained and mentored when the rookie was in high school. After the game, Curry admitted that it feels odd.
“I was just joking about JK, Moody, Jalen their all the same age, they were like 13, 14 when we won our first championship,” Curry told ClutchPoints… “Being side by side is kind of crazy…[I love] welcoming them and the new generation, that influence and all that but [I will] still not pass the torch too soon.”
On his way to scoring 40 points and winning the game, Curry didn't talk much to the opposition, let alone offer any advice. After the game, he shared that he did answer the young Rocket point guard's question. The Rockets rookie Green also said when he was struggling with his shot last year in the G-League, Curry reached out and gave him words of wisdom.
