Steve Kerr explains where Stephen Curry needs to improve this year

Published 1 Comments

Stephen Curry has a lot to prove this season despite being the two-time Most Valuable Player.

His performance in the Finals was not acceptable for a player of his calibre despite assertions he was not at 100 percent, and the point guard has to bounce back and prove he can deal with the physicality the Cavaliers thrust upon him on defence.

Cleveland had a perfect game plan to deal with Curry and executed it to perfection as the recovered from 3-1 down to win their first chip.

Head coach Steve Kerr insisted he has to counteract that approach, which many teams will adopt this season, if the Warriors are to be successful this season.

"Teams were absolutely physical with him. That's what I would do if I were coaching against him. I think that's smart," Kerr stated.

"I think playoff basketball is a little different than regular season in terms of how physical it is away from the ball. And so we can probably do some things to help him a little bit more in that regard.

"But he knows how teams are going to defend him. It's all part of it. He's a two-time MVP, the whole league is game-planning for him. He has to be able to counteract that and we have to help him with that."
