Two-time NBA Most Valuable Player and Three-Time NBA Champion Stephen Curry just recently finished the Manila-leg of his Under Armour Asian Tour. This was his second time in the country after his first visit in 2015.
Chef Curry shared to the local reporters in Manila that he is getting ready for the grind of the upcoming season, and that he feels he is at his best right now. Moreover, he wants to stay at it for as long as he possibly can.
“I feel excited. I feel that I met my peak as a player and I want to stay at that level as long as I can and keep pushing myself in that direction. I have great teammates, great organization to play for. We have an amazing opportunity to do something that is rarely done in the NBA that is to win three in a row. I’m excited about the challenge,” Stephen Curry said, per Michael Angelo S. Murillo of BusinessWorld.
The Warriors are on top of the basketball world right now. With all their accomplishments in the last four years, winning back-to-back titles and three of the last four, and setting an NBA record 73 wins in the regular season, it’s difficult to stay hungry and motivated. Going all the way to June every year since 2015 has taken its toll on the on the Warriors physically. But has all this winning affected them mentally?
Curry, the only unanimous MVP in NBA history, does not seem to be losing that drive to win anytime soon. He is already considered one of the all-time greats, and is arguably the best shooter in the history of the league. His many accolades are already a testament of his hard work and dedication to his craft. Hearing this from someone already as decorated as Curry will only add extra fire and motivation for his teammates to push for more runs in June.
Training camp for the season starts in less than two weeks, and the grit of the tough 82-game NBA season will officially commence. The Warriors are once again favorites to hoist the Larry O’Brien trophy for the third consecutive year. But with all the other teams like the Celtics, Rockets, and Lakers reloading their ammo, the challenge will definitely be harder than ever.
