Why Stephen Curry is really excited for the 2020-21 season, per Dell Curry
With three NBA championships and a pair of MVPs, Curry has a Hall of Fame resume. He will eventually retire as the most prolific shooter ever. Yet, he has as much to prove as anyone else in the league.
Steph missed nearly all of the 2019-20 season, and the Warriors — beset by injuries — posted the worst record in the league. But Curry’s father, Dell Curry, said his son cannot wait for a clean slate and the opportunity to be at full strength with Klay Thompson and Draymond Green.
“I’ve been talking to Steph, he’s excited for next year, talking about how everybody is going to be healthy and rested,” Dell said of the Warriors star on a conference call for the American Century Championship, per Josh Schrock of NBC Sports Bay Area.
“The eight teams that did not make, they are trying to find a way to play, participate. The Warriors are not going to do that. They are going to focus on practice. Klay is healthy now, so they are going to work him in slowly. They are thinking they can be contenders, but the West is going be really tough … Draymond is already fired up. He’s already on Instagram talking about he’s going to remind people who he was when he made the All-Star team, so he’s already thinking about next year and it doesn’t start until December.”
Thompson has been fully cleared from the torn ACL he suffered during Game 6 of the 2019 NBA Finals. Meanwhile, Stephen Curry should return as the primary offensive weapon in his first full season. Plus, the Warriors added Andrew Wiggins to be the third option.
Plenty of fans and pundits suggested the Warriors dynasty was over when the Toronto Raptors defeated them in the 2019 Finals.
However, the doubters and the injuries have only incentivized Curry and the rest of the Warriors to get back to the mountaintop.
