As a matter of fact, Warriors stalwart Draymond Green believes teams are frightened of the two-time MVP.
“Anytime you step on the floor with Steph Curry, there’s an advantage there,” Green recently said. “So, teams are terrified of him—and everywhere he runs on the floor, with or without the ball, teams are terrified. That type of gravity, he pulls a lot of weight.”
Green, 31, has played next to Curry for numerous years. The pair has been to multiple NBA Finals and won three championships together.
However, their amazing individual production hasn’t led to a ton of winning this year. The Warriors are the No. 8 seed in the Western Conference with a 33-32 record.
Curry, 33, is having one of the most prolific campaigns of his career. The point guard is collecting career-highs of 31.4 points and 5.5 boards on top of 5.8 assists and 1.2 steals per game this season.
In addition, Curry is shooting 48.7 percent from the field and 42.7 percent from distance this season. He recently eclipsed Washington Wizards All-Star Bradley Beal to become the league leader in scoring average per game this season.
The Warriors take on the New Orleans Pelicans on Tuesday.
