Steph Curry has a challenging path ahead when the NBA season begins

The Warriors bottled their mighty status and fell down to the bottom of the Western Conference in 2020. The team was without Steph Curry and Klay Thompson and found it hard to excel without two of their best players. 

As a new season dawns, Warriors’ fans are happy that Curry is back to full fitness. The disappointment however is that Thompson has injured himself again and will miss an entire season for the second successive year.

This makes things complicated for Steph Curry, who has massive responsibilities lying on his shoulder. The 2X MVP is confident about his chances as he is a 100% fit ahead of the new season.

“I think the advantage that we have in rest, other teams have in just familiarity and getting reps in over the course of the summer and in the bubble,” Curry said recently

Klay Thompson’s grueling torn Achilles sent the Warriors camp into a state of shock. But they’re now motivated to do better. Curry and Co. are even more inspired to go out and regain their status in the West.
