Warriors star Steph Curry always has been a leader.
Ever since he tweeted during his rookie season that he and the Warriors would “figure this thing out," Steph has done anything and everything to transform the Warriors into inarguably the NBA’s most successful team over the past five years.
Promise to all the Warrior fans...we will figure this thing out...if it's the last thing we do we will figure it out— Stephen Curry (@StephenCurry30) November 12, 2009
During his stint as a sideline analyst on NBC Sports Bay Area’s broadcast of Saturday night’s Warriors-Magic game at Chase Center, Curry delivered a powerful message to the young players who have taken Curry’s place on the court this season, as the 31-year-old continues to rehabilitate from a broken hand suffered against the Phoenix Suns on Oct. 30.
“We have a culture of winning and we've established that over many, many years,” Curry said. “And nothing worth working for comes easy, so just staying with the program and just working on your attitude, your competitiveness and the details of what you need to do every single game and how you can adjust and learn on the fly.”
Curry also highlighted the importance of commitment and loyalty to the organization, as the Warriors appear destined for the franchise’s first losing season since 2011-12.
“It's just about sticking with the program,” Curry continued. “We understand we're young, we're injured, but this is going to do amazing wonders for these guys once we get back healthy and everybody finds their place in terms of what we're trying to do as a team.
“So if you want to know anything about developing a winning mentality, just go look at my first two years playing for the Warriors and our win-loss record, it was a learning process and you've got to stick with it.”
Powerful words from Curry, as he hopes to be the catalyst of another comeback story for the Warriors.
