In an interview prior to the start of the next NBA season on Tuesday, reigning league MVP Steph Curry sat down with Marc Stein of ESPN to discuss a number of topics, including Kevin Durant and last year’s 73-win season.
Following on from his success of the past two seasons, in which he has won his two MVP awards, many people believe that Curry has now peaked and will never reach the same scale of personal success again.
The two main reasons for this are the belief that the Warriors addition of Durant this summer could take away from Curry in terms of shots and time on the ball, or that his standard was so high last year he will not be able to keep it up.
So when asked by Stein how many years he can continue to improve, Curry was bullish about continuing to expand and enhance his game.
“They say when you’re in your prime in the NBA, I think it was like 28 to 34, 32 maybe, somewhere in there, so I’m just reaching it. So I like the prognosis for these next four or five years,” he explained.
Curry went on to say: “I don’t know whether I’d be able to honestly be able to say I’ve hit my ceiling. I don’t think I’m there yet, so the mission stays the same.”
One thing is for certain. If Curry, now 28, can continue to improve over the timeframe he stated, the rest of the NBA could be in even more danger!
