Stephen Curry will, without a shadow of a doubt, go down as the greatest shooter of all time in Golden State Warriors as well as NBA history.

What sticks out, however, is how the three-time NBA champion has been able to set his ego aside and work towards the greater good of the franchise. This trait has been showcased numerous times over the point guard's illustrous career, and is finally being brought to light by NBA analysts and players alike.

American sports media personality Colin Cowherd on his show 'The Herd' was quick to note Curry's selfless personality and how that benefits the Golden State Warriors.

Cowherd stated:

"Here's Steph, cherry on top. See what Steph did this weekend, you know, I've been injured, I don't need to start, I'll come off the bench."

Colin Cowherd went on to add that the egos of other NBA superstars would not allow them to be utilized as sacrificial lambs, despite the fact that it could be used for the greater good of the franchise.

Cowherd cited Carmelo Anthony during his time with the Houston Rockets and as recently as Russell Westbrook's fiasco with the Los Angeles Lakers as prime examples.

Cowherd continued:

"Excuse me, when that was suggested to Russell Westbrook, he was outraged by it. when Melo, way past his prime, when it was suggested he comes off the bench, didn't know what to do with it."

Stephen Curry and the Warriors have always been in harmony regarding the former's prolonged playing career. The sharpshooter has never had any conflicts with the organization, and these decisive actions have transcended, towards the betterment of the franchise, especially in the 2022 NBA Playoffs.

Curry, who injured his foot on the 16th of March, was back just in time for the 2022 NBA Playoffs. The two-time NBA 'MVP', has since come off the bench in 'Game 1' as well as 'Game 2' against the Denver Nuggets in the first round. This is an entirely altruistic act from the three-point sniper.

This, in turn, has helped in the integral development and integration of Jordan Poole into the Warriors' starting lineup. The young point guard hasn't looked back since.

Poole is coming off back-to-back impressive performances for the 'Dubs' in the playoffs, dropping an impressive 30 points in 'Game 1', and another 29 points, to with eight assists, in two games against the Denver Nuggets.

The Warriors are strong contenders for the championship, provided they can get Klay Thompson, Stephen Curry and Jordan Poole firing on all cylinders.

The Dubs are looking to sweep the Denver Nuggets with the intention of advancing to the Western Conference semi-finals.
