Steph Curry had a very rough start to the NBA season. Despite dropping 20 points in his return to the NBA after 9 months, he and his Golden State Warriors fell to a 26 point loss to the Brooklyn Nets. Watching Kevin Durant make his Nets debut alongside Kyrie Irving must have been a hard sight for Steph, as his running mate was on the sidelines.

This is the first time that the responsibility to carry a team has fallen on Curry’s shoulders. Up until now, he had players like Klay, Draymond Green, and Andre Iguodala to share the load, and then even Kevin Durant joined the fray. However, the world is now two years in the future. Dray and Klay are hurt, Iguodala went to the Finals with the Miami Heat, and Kevin Durant just beat the Warriors playing for the Nets.

Klay unlocks Steph just as much as Steph unlocks Klay. No two players have had this kind of synergy on the court, and hopefully fans will be able see it again soon.
