Stephen Curry is the heart and all soul of the Golden State Warriors. If the Dubs didn’t draft Curry, it’s pretty safe to assume that they wouldn’t have reached the same heights as they did with him.
Curry’s impact on the team was proved in the 2019-20 NBA season, when he was out for almost the whole season. The team that visited the NBA Finals a season ago had the worst record in the league. Fast forward to this season and Steph is playing at an elite level.
However, despite Curry’s insane efforts, the Dubs are still struggling to find their form. Additionally, the team isn’t unable to get consistent wins, which is holding them back.
Charlotte Hornets coach on Stephen Curry and his impact
Once again, the Warriors failed to get a winning streak as they lost against the Charlotte Hornets. While the game was close, veteran center Draymond Green made a huge mistake in the dying minutes of the game. He committed a second technical foul and was ejected from the game.
Although Green is a sensational player, he wasn’t that big of concern for the Hornets coach. He talked about Stephen Curry in the post-game conference and said:
“Well, they’re a very good team obviously you know, it starts with [Stephen] Curry. He is the head of the snake. You gotta find ways to slow him down and limit him, you can’t allow him to roam freely. He’s given me nightmares over the years, scouting against him and preparing for him.”
Like Borrego pointed out, Steph can be a nightmare for any opposing coach as he possesses an immense amount of talent. But can he carry his team to a deep playoff run this season? That remains the biggest question this season for the team.
