Stephen Curry: "We wanted to go back to the Finals"

Stephen Curry is ready to play the NBA Finals with his Golden State against Boston: "It's amazing how much we have grown from that point to this, to 6 Finals in the last 8 years. And I feel I still have so much to give. For what we have over the past three years, as individuals and as a team.

I t was our goal to get back to this level, to play another title. I didn't expect us to start the season as well as we did, with 18 wins in 20 games, but I had faith: in the return of Klay, in how we had played in the finale of last season after too many ups and downs.

In the Play-In we lost, but I realized that we were close, that we were close. We built all this on that trust, on our new identity. The motivation to return to this level is what drove me throughout the season. But we still have 4 wins to make sense of it all.

When you change there are always doubts, not even I was sure that q his way of building the team would have worked. But we know what me, Draymond and Klay can do when we're healthy, how we can play."

Stephen Curry's career

Considered one of the best players of all time, the Golden State Warriors, which he captained, three times became NBA champions, beating LeBron James' Cleveland Cavaliers on all three occasions; in the 2015-2016 season they also set the record for victories in the regular season (73, surpassing the previous record of Michael Jordan's Chicago Bulls).

In the same season, he became the first and so far only player in history to be unanimously named best player of the year, which he had also won the previous year. For the Warriors he is also the best scorer in history. Considered the best shooter in history, he holds the record for the highest number of triples scored in a season (402 in the 2015-2016 vintage) and the second for triples scored in a single match (13 on 7 November 2016, a record later surpassed by Klay Thompson).

On December 14, 2021, he becomes the player with the most triples scored in NBA history, beating Ray Allen's previous record of 2973 3-pointers. On December 28, 2021, in the game against the Denver Nuggets, he becomes the first and currently only player in NBA history to exceed 3,000 3-pointers scored in his career.

In ESPN's 2020 ranking, Curry ranks 13th in the ranking of the 74 best NBA players ever. On the occasion of the 75th anniversary of the birth of the NBA, at the beginning of the 2021/2022 season the league compiled a list of the 75 strongest players of all time, including Curry.
