In the beginning of his NBA career, Stephen Curry was a player with a lot of talent who struggled to stay healthy due to ankle problems that were feared to have the ability to end his status as a star in this league.
Curry, a star for the Golden State Warriors, fortunately learned how to take care of his body while altering his style of play to prevent these kind of injuries. Since then, he has never looked back as he has single-handedly altered the game and ushered the NBA into the three-point shooting era.
Curry has won four NBA championships as a result of altering the game, and even though he’s 35 years old, he might not be finished yet.
Curry, the face of the Warriors franchise, undoubtedly knows what it takes to win and detailed what a team needs to do in order to compete for a championship in an interview with Marcus Thompson II of The Athletic, via NBACentral. It remains to be seen, however, how much basketball Curry may have left in him while playing at an elite level.

The biggest thing is, look at teams that have won. You realize that there is a certain way about how you show up on a nightly basis. Everybody is important. pic.twitter.com/Iaq7xwtIfS

The Warriors’ roster will be a little different going into the 2023–24 NBA season as they recently dealt teenage guard Jordan Poole to the Washington Wizards in exchange for veteran floor general Chris Paul.
Paul and the Warriors’ stars haven’t gotten along well through the years, but they still need to learn how to play together and mix two very different basketball playing philosophies.
Next season, it will be intriguing to watch if the Paul experiment succeeds in San Francisco and if Curry and company still have it in them to win the championship.
