Stephen Curry speaks out on the Warriors’ championship window after ‘crazy year’
Not only did the Dubs finish with the worst record in the NBA, but Curry only played in five games after suffering a broken left hand in the fourth game of the season against the Phoenix Suns.
The Warriors superstar underwent multiple surgeries on his hand before returning to the court, only to see the season get suspended in March right after he came back.
This weekend, Curry is playing in the American Century Celebrity Golf Championship in Lake Tahoe since the Dubs weren’t invited to Orlando for the season’s restart. On Friday, the Warriors star was asked about why he feels so confident the team can still win a championship moving forward after a “crazy year.”

Odds are the Warriors will be playoff contenders again in 2020-21 since Stephen Curry, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green and Andrew Wiggins will be leading the charge.
It’s also worth mentioning that the Dubs will have a top pick in the 2020 draft. The franchise has been linked to Georgia’s Anthony Edwards, but there have also been rumors stating that general manager Bob Myers could trade the team’s top pick for a star.
After playing in five straight NBA Finals, the time off this year may be what Curry needs to get ready for a comeback 2020-21 campaign. The greatest shooter in NBA history, along with Thompson and Green, is motivated to prove that the Warriors’ dynasty is still intact despite the departure of two-time Finals MVP Kevin Durant.
