Deconstructing Stephen Curry’s Longevity: Insights from Draymond Green

Draymond Green expresses his admiration for Stephen Curry’s success in overcoming the challenges posed by aging.

During an interview on Sirius XM NBA Radio, Draymond Green discussed a lesser-known aspect of Stephen Curry’s impressive career. Despite being 35 years old, Curry has managed to maintain his success in basketball, putting him in the same league as other long-lasting stars like LeBron James and Chris Paul. According to Green, one reason for this success is Curry’s unwavering passion. Although Curry is often seen as a happy-go-lucky “golden child,” underneath it all he possesses a burning passion that drives him to work harder than almost anyone Green has ever seen. Whether he’s lifting weights or practicing on the court, Curry is constantly striving to beat the inevitable toll of aging. Although Father Time may be undefeated, Curry and his team are determined to prove that with hard work and determination, they can still come out on top.

Since his first MVP win in 2015, the Golden State Warriors have held a consistent position at the top of the basketball world. This incredible run is largely thanks to the talent and leadership of Steph Curry, who has cemented his legacy as one of the greatest players in NBA history over the last eight years. Despite all of his past accomplishments, Curry shows no signs of slowing down after posting impressive stats of 29.4 points, 6.3 assists, and 6.1 rebounds on 49.3% shooting during the previous season.

It’s highly likely that Steph will continue to excel and remain a star for quite some time.

LeBron James is a remarkable player who has managed to maintain his All-Star level performance for over two decades. As he enters his 21st season, it is no surprise that he is still considered one of the top 10 players in basketball, even though he is almost 39 years old. On the other hand, although Curry is not as old, it is impressive that he has not lost any of his skills despite being in the league for 14 years.

It’s uncertain what lies ahead for Curry, but judging from his performance last season, he still has a lot to offer. As the best shooter in history, his skills remain intact, and his relentless determination continues to drive him. The Golden State Warriors are far from finished.

Having been together for quite some time, it’s natural to assume that this team has already hit their peak. But this summer, the Warriors took a bold step and strengthened their core by trading Jordan Poole, their last young star, for a backup point guard who can support Curry. With a lineup comprising of Steph, Klay, Paul, Wiggins, and Draymond, the Golden State team has all the elements needed to secure another championship victory. The league is buzzing with confidence that they will put up a great show and surprise many with their stellar performance.

In the Western Conference, some teams like the Suns, Lakers, and Clippers are working hard to make their squad better, especially if they acquire James Harden. The Golden State Warriors will have a tough time keeping up with these new and improved teams, but with Curry on their side, they still have a chance at winning a championship. If he remains healthy in the 2023-24 season, it wouldn’t be shocking to see the Warriors as the last team standing.
