Stephen Curry has resurrected the Golden State Warriors this season, and of course, his teammates also deserve a lot of the credit. After all the criticism that he had to bear with the past two seasons, because of the team’s inability to make the playoffs without Klay Thompson, Steph decided to respond with his actions. And if there is anyone who had faith in him before and still is, one of his biggest fans, American rapper Earl Stevens aka E-40.

E-40 showers praise on Stephen Curry

The Dubs have been absolutely amazing this season and, of course, their success wouldn’t have been possible if it wasn’t for Stephen Curry. Not only are the Golden State Warriors, are top title contenders from the Western Conference, but Steph is also in the running for MVP. Although most people’s hopes were resting on Klay’s return, Curry proved that they could still be the best without him.

While some haters of Steph turned up during this tough time, some die-hard fans continued to show faith in him, love him and support him. And E-40 is a testament to that. In a recent interview, he revealed, “I remember I was downtown with him and all the kids were out. It was an event and everybody was on him.”

“And I am used to getting all the autographs. Then they came to me after they were done with him. He’s the biggest show in sports, I don’t care what nobody say. He’s the guy and he’s my GOAT.”
