NBA: Stephen Curry gets hit
After two difficult years, Stephen Curry returned to his very best, which allowed him to carry the Golden State Warriors to a new NBA championship title. Exceptional throughout the playoff campaign, the leader of the Californian franchise was snubbed by Mark Cuban, the boss of the Mavericks, who believes that Andrew Wiggins did them more harm than Stephen Curry.
At 34, there may only be Stephen Curry who knew he would relive such a season. After two years spent at the bottom of the hole or almost, the Golden State Warriors came back to the fore and how. Already impressive during the regular season, Stephen Curry raised his level of play again in the playoffs. Result, the Chief allowed his family to win a fourth championship title NBA in eight years with a first Finals MVP trophy for him.
“He’s our Magic Johnson, our Tim Duncan”
Author of an exceptional performance, Stephen Curry accomplished what he had been waiting for for a long time. ” It meant so much to him considering where we’ve been for the past two years. Forget what everyone was saying about him needing a Finals MVP title. We don’t care what anyone says: you could see in his eyes that he needed it, for him. He really wanted that Finals MVP title and trophy and he got it. He is the main architect of all this. He’s our Magic Johnson, our Tim Duncan. It’s the face of the franchise. Everything was built around him. For this reason, I will always think that this title will go down as Stephen’s crowning glory. “, assures Steve Kerrthe coach of Golden State Warriors.
First Finals MVP title for Stephen Curry
It must be said that on the floor, Stephen Curry behaved like a boss. Frustrated never to have won MVP of the Finals, the leader of Warriors wanted to change things. Apart from the two indisputable coronations of Kevin Durant, Stephen Curry could have, or even should have, won the statuette in 2015 at the expense ofAndre Iguodala. No regrets for Curry who, alone like a grown-up, brought his franchise to new success and won his first trophy of MVP of the Finals.
