Stephen Curry is 35-years-old and just began his 15th NBA season. If you thought this would be the year he starts to slow down or regress, think again. Curry is off to an incredible start to the season and has the Golden State Warriors sitting at 3-1 with three-straight wins on the road.
When you have to go back to 2016 to compare how good he has been, you know he’s done something special, considering he was the unanimous MVP that season.
Golden State Warriors superstar Stephen Curry has made an exhilarating start to the season, beginning an early push to make NBA history.
Opening night against Phoenix was an average game for Steph, only tallying 27 points and four three-pointers. Game two in Sacramento, marking his return to Golden 1 Center for the first time since his 50-point Game 7 performance, saw a Curry eruption — 41 points to go along with seven threes and even another “night night” celebration for Kings fans to enjoy.
On the road in Houston, it was a slow three-quarters for Steph until another ‘Curry flurry” happened. Four straight threes in the fourth, along with some embarrassment to poor Dillon Brooks who was unable to contain the two-time MVP down the stretch.
The following night, on Monday in New Orleans, Curry exploded for 42 points and seven threes in just 30 minutes of playing time. Aside from the impressive scoring numbers, the efficiency is always there for Curry as well. He’s averaging 33.5 points per game on 56-47-92 shooting splits.
It’s hard to fathom that Curry seems to continue to get better with age, but we are seeing it firsthand. Warrior fans shouldn’t be taking this for granted, being able to watch him every night is a special experience.
It’s only been four games, but Curry is a genuine MVP favorite if he keeps this up. If that were to eventuate, he’d become the oldest player to win NBA MVP. The franchise legend turns 36 in March, which would beat out Karl Malone who won the 1999 MVP at 35.
