Stephen Curry has accepted the challenge of leading a depleted Golden State Warriors team.
It’s going to take a massive season from Stephen Curry to keep the Golden State Warriors on top. The Dubs have enjoyed five consecutive trips to the NBA Finals and three championships across their dynasty but face the end of an era this year.
The Warriors will feel the sting of losing Kevin Durant all season long. Say what you will about his leadership abilities but there is no questioning KD’s presence was valuable to the overall success of the team.
Not only have the Dubs lost their two-time Finals MVP, but they must traverse through most of the 2019-20 NBA season without Klay Thompson. As Thompson recovers from his ACL injury, Curry will be asked to keep the ship afloat.
This isn’t new territory for Curry. He was the original leader of the Dubs back when they were an up and coming team. It was Curry who began the dynasty and the fate of the Warriors will rest on his shoulders this season.
Though he is entering his 11th season, a 30-year old Curry has shown no signs of slowing down. The latter half of the 2019 NBA Playoffs can be viewed as his best to date with Curry averaging 32.9 points, 6.3 rebounds and 6.3 assists per game on 43.9 percent shooting across the final 11 games.
Even in the face of multiple devasting injuries, the Dubs fell just a few possesions short of forcing the 2019 NBA Finals into a decisive Game 7. It was Curry who carried the team through this tough journey and it will be Curry who carries them through this season as well.
Curry is set for more than just another great season, he is prepared to make history. The Warriors are counting on their two-time MVP to lift them up and he is ready to accept the challenge.
