“An Authentic Man”: Warriors President Explains Why Stephen Curry is Special

Stephen Curry of Golden State Warriors

On the day that Golden State Warriors drafted Stephen Curry, their president of basketball operations, Bob Myers appeared on 95.7 The Game to talk about their star man.

On June 25, 2009, the Warriors selected Curry with the seventh overall pick in the NBA Draft. He has, since then, led the Dubs to great success. His three-point shooting revolutionized the game of basketball. With Curry in the team, the Warriors won three titles in the last five years. Curry won two consecutive MVP awards in 2015 and 2016- with the second one being selected unanimously.

Talking about him, Myers felt Curry’s ability to win games against all opponents is what makes him special.

“You know what Curry does? He keeps you in every game,” he said. “He gives you a chance to win every single game, no matter who you are playing, and that ability is what makes him special. So when you have him on your team, there’s no ceiling. There’s no, ‘Oh, we can’t win and can’t score.’ Better guy than player.

“We’re talking about appreciating him. What you see is what you get. He doesn’t do the activism, he doesn’t talk about stuff on a podium and go home or get off the microphone and act a different way. As described, he delivers. He’s an authentic man. And that’s probably my favorite part of him.”

Stephen Curry and Golden State Warriors will be aiming to bounce back next season

After making it to five consecutive NBA finals, the Warriors had a dismal 2019/20 season. Major movements within the roster and injury concerns weakened their side. Prior to the league’s suspension, they were at the bottom of the Western Conference, with just 15 wins.

However, when fully fit, the Warriors are a decent team. To add to it, they recently signed Andrew Wiggins. Their current season has come to an end as they are not among the 22-teams for the restart. One of the positives for them would be a high draft pick, which they will be looking to cash in and bounce back in the next season.
