After a slow start to the 2020-21 NBA season, many started criticizing Warriors’ Steph Curry. In fact, some even started doubting the legacy of the 2-time NBA MVP. But Steph didn’t let the critics faze his confidence as he dropped a career-high 62 points against the Portland Trail Blazers.

In the game, Curry played like a beast and scored from everywhere on the court. Following the dominant performance from Steph, head coach Steve Kerr praised his franchise superstar. In an interview with Yahoo’s Vincent Goodwill, Kerr said:

“If you think about most guys considered the best players in the league, physical freaks of nature, LeBron, Giannis, Anthony Davis. Steph is 6-3, 180 pounds, whatever he is. He has to carry a game with skill, not physicality.”

When Curry entered the league, no one expected him to become the player that he is today. Additionally, he struggled with a lot of injuries during the early stages of his career. But against all odds, Steph has established himself as one of the best players in the history of the league.

For the last five years or so, he has always been in the conversation for the best player in the league. As Steve Kerr mentioned, Steph is one of the few players who has built his career on just pure skill. But can the baby-faced assassin win another championship for the Dubs? That is the million dollar question right now.

Can Steph Curry carry the Warriors to another NBA Championship?

After an underwhelming 2019-20 NBA season, the whole world has their eyes on the Warriors this season. So far they have had an average start to the season and are 3-3 in their first 6 games of the season.

However, after making a lot of changes to their roster, the team finally looked in sync against the Blazers. The return of Draymond Green completely re-energized the team and Steph Curry as he went on a bizarre scoring spree in their last fixture.
