Warriors’ Stephen Curry says he was surprised ‘nobody can be happy when people are playing well’
With star small forward Kevin Durant out, the pundits have been saying the Warriors are better without KD. When Durant is playing, the critics say the Dubs have to play a different style since the two-time Finals MVP is one of the most dominant scorers in NBA history.
Speaking to reporters after Warriors practice on Friday, Curry addressed all of these topics.
“Nobody can be happy when people are playing well; that’s the most surprising part to me,” Curry said, via the San Francisco Chronicle. “If KD is playing well, it’s, ‘Oh, they’re playing a different style and it’s not as much fun to watch.’ When he’s out and we’re winning games, it’s, ‘Are we better or more fun (without him)?’
“We’re a great team because everybody who puts on a uniform goes out and competes at a high level. We look out for each other, there’s a little bit of sacrifice and it’s about winning. No matter who’s on the floor, that’s what we’re about.”
The Warriors have gone 5-0 since Durant got hurt. That doesn’t mean, though, that they are a better unit without him.
Golden State is one of the best teams in NBA history. It’s time the media just starts watching them for who they are and enjoy it without nitpicking.
