The Golden State Warriors were one to watch in the NBA preseason. They won all four of their games, two against the Los Angeles Lakers, one against the Denver Nuggets, and even the Portland Trail Blazers. With such a good start, fans are hoping to see the Warriors finally turning a new chapter after two years with Klay Thompson gone and now ready to return. But it looks like Stephen Curry has already started to make some commitments after the 2021-22 NBA season comes to an end. Spoiler! It has something to do with Rucker Park.

Stephen Curry plans on visiting Rucker Park

Stephen Curry and the Curry Brand have officially announced his new signature sneaker, the Curry Flow 9. While this is obviously another great feat in the superstar’s career, he is also doing something great for the community in New York. Holcombe Rucker Park is famous for giving rise to some of the best talents the league has ever seen.

With the number of legends that have stepped onto the court there, it deserves a little bit of a revamp. And it’s the Curry brand who has decided to take that initiative. In a recent interview, Curry explained how important it is to keep that place alive because of the impact it has had on basketball history.

However, that’s not the only thing he plans to do. On Instagram, Steph went live with some players enjoying Rucker Park during which he revealed that he might be making an appearance there very soon. He said, “This is setting up a good stage for me to try to make out to Harlem to Rucker Park. So, y’all stay tuned for that. I’m going to be in NBA arenas for a little bit longer & will see after that.”

Their performance in the preseason has set the bar of expectations really high. But that does not mean the Golden State Warriors can lie back and take it lightly. From ensuring that Jordan Poole continues his stellar performances in the regular season, figuring out how to manage the Lakers’ Big Three, to help Draymond Green get back his ability to score better, they have a lot on their hands.

And let’s not forget the biggest task for this season. They also have to ensure a hiccup-free and comfortable return for Klay Thompson as well. The decision to make him play at the right time will be vital to their fate as a title contender. While his drive to help the community deserves applause, this could be his make-or-break season.
