There's no denying that the Golden State Warriors are the best team in the NBA right now. Their recent record in the league clearly states it.

Over the past four seasons, while under the head coaching rule of Steve Kerr, the Warriors have won three NBA Championships, including two back-to-back titles in the past two seasons.

If there is one player that has been the key contributor towards Golden State's title successes, it's Steph Curry.

Since being drafted by the franchise in 2009, Curry has transformed into not only the face of the franchise but also one of the best players in the league today.

Reddit user freshcharity recently highlighted just how important the point guard has been for the Warriors during Kerr’s reign as head coach.

They stated: "When Steph Curry has been on the court during the three championships in four years Steve Kerr era, the Warriors are 244-45 (.844)—a perpetual 69-win pace."

An 84% winning percentage with Curry on the floor for the Warriors since Kerr was appointed head coach in 2014 is pretty remarkable. It goes to show just how important he is to the franchise.

During that period, the point guard also won the MVP in 2015 and 2016. He's also seen the likes of Klay Thompson and Draymond Green develop into stars, as well as the arrival of Kevin Durant.

While each of those three players mentioned has played a part in the Warriors success in recent years, it's Curry that has benefited the most as their involvement allows him to thrive on the court.

The 30-year-old stated last month that he wants to retire as a Warrior, so fans can expect many more years of the point guard at the Oracle Arena.

The Warriors will kick off their title defense on October 16 against the Oklahoma City Thunder inside Oracle Arena.
