Stephen Curry has averaged 31 points per game in the first three games powering the Warriors to their best start since their record-breaking 73-win campaign six seasons ago.

Chef Curry is proving that the success of the Warriors depends on him despite the franchise improving their roster. Warriors won big time in 2009 when they drafted Curry. In fact, they wouldn’t know until 2013, when they realize they have one of the best shooters on their roster.

The ‘Baby Faced Assassin’ went on to win two MVPs and revolutionized the game by inspiring teams to focus more on three-pointers. By doing this, he has earned a lot of praise for former and current NBA greats. Former Magic star JJ Redick recently praised Curry in a recent interview.
