Stephen Curry recently gave an interview where he said he couldn't picture himself playing for a different franchise in the NBA.
Golden State is all the point guard has known during his professional career and heading into 2017's free agency it seems inevitable that he will re-sign with the 2015 champions.
However, the back-to-back MVP stopped short of backing himself into a corner by saying you never what can happen in the world of sport.
It would take something pretty spectacular for the 28-year-old to leave the Bay Area, but one city he does have a strong connection to is his hometown, Charlotte.
“Obviously I had a strong tie to Charlotte and would have loved to play there. I'm very comfortable in that city. It's hard to say exactly what the situation will be this summer."
Now that's not to say Curry is going to join the Hornets, but some point in the future the All-Star guard could end up suiting up for the team his father briefly played for.
With the season still in its infancy, there are more important things on the horizon for Steph than his decision next year, and he made that abundantly clear in the interview.
"It's on my radar," Curry told the Observer. “But it's not really on my mind as much day-to-day. I'm just trying to enjoy what this season is going to bring."
There won't be a shortage of teams interested in the services of the Davidson alum, but we would be very surprised if he doesn't stay with the Dubs.
