Stephen Curry has brushed off suggestions which the Golden State Warriors’ dominance has negatively affected the NBA.
Curry along with the Warriors swept the Cleveland Cavaliers in last month’s NBA finals to win their third title in four years. They followed that up by building an additional All-Star, DeMarcus Cousins, with a roster that includes Curry, Kevin Durant, Klay Thompson and Draymond Green, prompting some to complain that next season has already been a foregone conclusion.
“So everybody says how we’re ruining the NBA C Everyone loves that phrasing,” told USA Today within a interview published on Wednesday. “It’s the dumbest phrase ever. We’ve been always trying to find a method to get better. Whenever we were just happy with winning a championship and staying stagnant, we couldn’t survive doing ourselves justice. Obviously with [Durant logging into sites 2016], with DeMarcus come early july, while using the bench guys that we’ve been able to sign, everyone is looking for ways to better so we just have been completely individuals set the pace as well as set the narrative around the method that you must structure your team to overpower us.”
Cousins is probably the top players from the league but tore his calf msucles last season, and has been recognized by clash with teammates. However, Curry said he had no concerns that Cousins will upset the Warriors’ dynamic. “I’ve dealt with DeMarcus in Team USA stuff,” said Curry. “I’ve played against him. We’ve had run-ins, the teams had run-ins, nevertheless it’s likely to be fun.”
LeBron’s Lakers to competitive balance: NBA free agency winners and losers
The NBA’s biggest star, Lebron, left the Cavaliers after losing a different NBA finals against the Warriors. He will be seeing more of Golden State though as they joined their Western Conference rivals, the la Lakers. “There’s lots that’s been made with regards to the competition under western culture and [James’s] eight straight finals appearances and that, but that merely makes everybody increase your antenna up a bit more C including us. It will be fun for fans … hence the West obviously got stronger with LeBron but you have still got to overcome us.”
Durant, meanwhile, has become a 2010 little less balanced within the off-season comments. The two-time NBA champion and nine-time All-Star found myself in a heated argument using a 17-year-old high school graduation student on Instagram. The teenager, who goes on the handle @bucketscenter, was able to rile Durant, who turns 30 in September, by suggesting he did not elevate his team as much as James or Curry. Durant told @bucketscenter to “go sweep your dorm room” before calling him a “middle school/knock off stephen a,” a hitting the ground with ESPN personality Stephen A Smith. The argument then continued with Durant saying “you’re like 12, your opinion aren’t going to be used every single motivation”.
The Warriors still haven’t confirm whether Durant has reproduced @bucketscenter’s comments and taped those to his locker.
