24/7-365. Basketball Lives Here.
Stephen Curry had an individual season for the ages in 2015-16. The 28-year-old averaged a league leading 30.1 points per game, to go with 6.7 assists and a league leading 2.1 steals per game. He led the Warriors to a 73-win season, the best in league history and earned his second straight MVP award in the process.
Even with the Finals loss, Curry produced a season that you can only dream of. Now, with Kevin Durant joining the Warriors, many except individual numbers for everyone involved to take a dip, as well as the accolades. Curry doesn’t want to think like that.
The three-time All-Star says even while sharing the spotlight with Kevin Durant, he wants to have an even better season than last year and has prepared himself to do so. Via The Vertical:
“I haven’t really thought about it like that,” Curry said of Durant’s arrival, “because that would kind of cheat my process. I have the same mentality. I don’t really think about any other expectations. I want to get better. I want to be better than I was last year. That’s going to be the same, regardless if KD was here or not. You would think there is a blessing with pressure or whatever, but that’s not how I can think, because I’ve got to still do my job and do it at a high level for us to be as great as we want to be.”
