Steph Curry's humility has been talked about almost as much as his three NBA championship titles.

NBA Analyst for Fox Sports, Ric Bucher spoke about the self-consciousness of the Golden State Warriors guard, which he remarked to appreciate. He stated that while Curry will never equate himself to Kobe Bryant or Michael Jordan.

He went on to claim that Curry’s consciousness of self, knowing "who is and isn't," saw him making room for Kevin Durant, Jordan Poole and everyone else around him.

"If you talk to Steph, Steph in a candid moment he would tell you I'm not Kobe, I'm not Michael, I don't dominate the way they do," Bucher said. "Now have I won the way they have? Yes! And do I try to win the way they do? Yes!
"But I think one of the things that I appreciate about Steph is that he knows exactly who he is, and who he isn't, and it's allowed him to make room for a Kevin Durant or a Jordan Poole, or anybody else caught in along the way."

If it was an individual sport, one could argue that no player is more deserving of the 2022 NBA championship title than Steph Curry. He has been sensational for the entirety of the season, leading the Golden State Warriors to their best record in the last three seasons.

The Warriors finished the regular season with 53 wins, the eighth-most wins in franchise history and tied for the third-best record in the NBA this season (53-29). Golden State will make its eighth postseason appearance in the last 10 years and 36th in franchise history.

He now holds the record for the all-time three-point leader in NBA history, a feat formerly held by Ray Allen for over a decade.

A title win this year will crown his amazing efforts but he must get past the impenetrable Boston Celtics. The series heads back to San Francisco for Game 5 with the clubs tied at 2-2.
