Is Stephen Curry Fading?
YES, you heard it right ‘STEPHEN CURRY’, the 2 x NBA champion and 2xSEASON MVP had to play the last season in the shadows of the new finals MVP 'KEVIN DURANT' , Many dub-nation fans won’t agree to this, but how many of them realized the fact that it was in the clutch situations that they all wanted the ball in the hands of more trusted and reliable KEVIN. Kevin Durant joined the Warriors and it became evident early on that Durant was a necessity rather than a luxury, this definitely affected the whole GSW family including CURRY.
The pre-Durant era in Golden State was dominated by CURRY, he was the season MVP for two consecutive years and had won a championship.Curry had one of the best ever scoring season.
In 2015-16 season Curry shot over 50 percent from the floor. The list of players who had seasons averaging more than 30 points, six assists, five rebounds and made over 50 percent of their shots-
POST-KEVIN era, as expected KEVIN delivered and GSW were the NBA champions.Now, it was no more 'Curry and his Warriors winning the title', but -
How DURANT Took a speculative decision and it paid off '
From 'Curry the greatest scoring point guard’, it is now down to ‘Curry a great three-point shooter'.
Stats suggest how his scoring numbers have gone down (2015-2016 vs 2016-2017)
Not only on-court but off the court too, Durant effect can be noticed in the Curry jersey and shoe sale going down, as now KD is a tempting choice for all Golden State Warriors fan.
At last, making a super-team might have done the trick for GSW and now they might be dominating for years to come but the sacrifice of the brightest star isn’t gratified.
