Stephen Curry has been no stranger to feeling small. The Golden State Warriors star has always been considers little by basketball standards, which has made him a perennial underdog his entire life.

The Warriors star has now become an NBA giant himself, but in his own way. Curry has become an unstoppable force in a league full of towering physical freaks, overcoming his relatively slight frame to slay foes much more imposing than him.

Stephen Curry and his Warriors will need to do the same if they want to upset a Los Angeles Lakers side that features a massive frontline, buoyed by their stars LeBron James and Anthony Davis. Curry spoke out about going small against the LA side, as reported by The Athletic’s Anthony Slater:

“I don’t know. We’ve talked about that, talked about a lot of different matchups…The gameplan doesn’t change that much knowing that whoever they have out there, they’ll probably be bigger than us.”

Throughout their run of success in the past half decade, the Warriors have utilized small-ball lineups with 6-foot-7 Draymond Green manning the post. The former DPOY will definitely have his hands full trying to contain Lakers’ Anthony Davis, but he’ll obviously be up for the challenge.

Steve Kerr clearly thinks so as well, with the Warriors coach claiming that he’s feeling pretty good about deploying Green on AD:

“The pro is that we’ve got I think the best defender on earth guarding one of the best players on earth…That outweighs the cons. The cons are that Draymond can’t play as much centerfield.”
