The Golden State Warriors own the NBA’s longest current winning streak after reeling off 12 consecutive victories. By the sound of things, it appears that Steph Curry is likely to remain in the Bay Area for a long time.
Curry, who faces unrestricted free agency alongside teammate Kevin Durant after the 2016-2017 season, recently spoke about his upcoming decision to Jason Gay of the Wall Street Journal, and his answer likely eased the minds of his current organization and its fans.
According to Curry, “it’s hard to see myself anywhere else.” While he submitted that “curveballs happen all the time,” it seems like Curry wants to be with Golden State for some time.
Curry’s assertion is one that most NBA fans likely share, as Curry has been the centerpiece of the renaissance for the Warriors over the past several seasons. The two-time reigning MVP has been linked, at least via the rumor mill, to the Charlotte Hornets given his family ties to the area. But Golden State can offer Curry the largest sum of money to stick around and there is no question that the Warriors present a fantastic situation for the now 28-year-old when it comes to winning and national exposure.
Make no mistake, this quote from Curry won’t do much to slow the chatter surrounding the decisions that both he and Durant will face in the coming months, especially if and when the Warriors hit a rough patch on the court. Still, Golden State will likely accept any positive indicator when it comes to retaining the world’s best shooter, and this qualifies under that provision.
