In the NBA’s history, we have seen many legendary players come and go. While some impressed us with their achievements, there are some who we will continue to remember as those who completely changed the face of the game. And the Golden State Warriors’ Stephen Curry belongs to the latter category.

However, if that seems like just something people have been saying about him, his head coach Steve Kerr has the perfect example of how he has revolutionized basketball and is continuing to inspire younger generations to follow in his footsteps.

The Golden State Warriors have been in a constant battle with the Phoenix Suns for the top spot in the Western Conference. The two teams have overtaken each other several times. However, with a 24-6 record, the Dubs stand second at the moment, because of having just lost to the Toronto Raptors.

But it was their game against the Boston Celtics, during which Kerr’s mind was absolutely blown. In a recent interview, he revealed that they played a video of little kids playing before their game in Boston which everyone had their eyes on. Kerr stated, “About seven-straight possessions, these 10-year-old kids launched 3-pointers, and I turned to Steph and I said, ‘Steph, this is all your fault.’”

“All you have to do is look at all the young players coming up. Whether they are 10 years old, or 21, or 19 coming into the NBA for the first time. Everybody wants to launch from three. He’s changed the game probably forever. Beyond that though, for me, the way Steph carries himself, and the way he’s so coachable and can set the tone here for the Warriors. He’s the face of our franchise, and I’m incredibly blessed to coach him,” he concluded.

Of course, Steph’s leadership and his ability to shoot from any angle are what makes him one of the greatest shooters of all time. However, what sets him apart from the rest is his humility. Despite all that he has achieved, he continues to perfect his game in any way that he can. And it shows.

After all the criticism that he faced for being unable to carry the team without Klay Thompson, he spoke not with words but retaliated with his actions in the 2021-22 campaign. With fans also awaiting Klay’s return, what’s certain is that this team will only get stronger with his presence.

Whether the Warriors pick up from where they left off before Klay’s injury, Curry’s impact on other generations will never change. And that’s what basketball is all about.
