Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr has showered praise on the team’s talisman Steph Curry. Kerr said Curry has had a deep impact on the game and he has probably forever changed the sport. The chief coach added that Curry has inspired the young generation in attempting more three-pointers from behind the arc.
Curry recently surpassed Ray Allen’s record of most triples in the regular season of the NBA as he scored the record-breaking 2974th three of his career against New York Knicks at the Madison Square Garden last week.
Curry is regarded as the best shooter in the game and he has definitely revolutionized the sport with his incredible shooting. The 33-year old has left a huge legacy and still has a lot of fuel in his tank.
“About seven-straight possessions, these 10-year-old kids launched 3-pointers, and I turned to Steph and I said, ‘Steph, this is all your fault.’ All you have to do is look at all the young players coming up, whether they’re 10 years old, or 21 or 19, coming into the NBA for the first time. Everybody wants to lodge from three.”
Kerr added that Curry is the face of their franchise and he feels incredibly blessed to coach him.
“He’s changed the game, probably forever. Beyond that though for me, just the way Steph Curry is himself, the way he’s so coachable just sets the tone here for the Warriors. He’s the face of our franchise and I’m incredibly blessed to coach him.”
The point guard has been in sensational form in the ongoing NBA season for Golden State Warriors and he has played a key role in the success of the team. Curry posted 30 points, 3 rebounds, and 4 assists against Sacramento Kings as the team won by 113-98. GSW now has a 25-6 record and they will next face Memphis Grizzlies on Thursday.
